Ubisoft is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the release of Far Cry 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, a game that marked a milestone for the company by achieving the franchise’s highest-selling debut and the second-highest debut across all Ubisoft titles. Given the game’s remarkable success, it’s only fitting for Ubisoft to honor its fifth anniversary.
To commemorate the occasion, Ubisoft has released a patch that elevates the game’s performance by enabling high-resolution settings and native 60 FPS. This update promises a smoother gameplay experience as players to explore Hope County and confront Joseph Seed and his Heralds. All game modes, including the three DLCs, are covered by this patch, allowing players to delve into the backstories of characters such as Wendell Redler, Nick Rye, and Guy Marvel.
A recent Reddit post presents the remarkable visual improvements of Far Cry 5 with the new patch running on Xbox Series X, delivering 4K and 60 FPS performance.

Despite the inability of Reddit’s native video player to support 4K video playback, the video still manages to showcase the game’s significant upgrades. The enhanced graphics offer a seamless and thrilling experience for players with compatible system requirements, eliminating any potential for choppy or sluggish gameplay.
This recent update has significantly transformed the game, which is five years old now. It has introduced a new and revitalized perspective to the game, which fulfills the expectations of the players who watched the stunning trailers of the beautiful Montana wilderness in 2017.
For gamers who own the latest consoles, this update presents an excellent opportunity to explore the game’s enhanced graphics and seamless performance, either rediscovering the game or experiencing it for the first time.
Gamers are curious about the possibility of Ubisoft releasing native 60 FPS patches for their other popular titles in the future. A reddit post has sparked a top comment expressing hope for a similar update for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, which marks its 10th anniversary in October.
Fans eagerly anticipate other older Ubisoft games to receive similar upgrades, making them suitable for next-gen consoles and appealing to gamers. Far Cry Primal and Watch Dogs are just some games that could look and feel fantastic with a similar patch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
The game runs at a 3840×2160 and 4K resolution on Xbox Series X, while Xbox Series S runs it at 1920×1080. On the other hand, PS5 players can still enjoy the game at 2880×1620 resolution while battling against the Seed family.
Updating older games to make them more visually stunning and smoother is an excellent move for Ubisoft. It shows that the company cares about its fans and wants to provide them with the best gaming experience possible. Additionally, it allows players who missed out on these titles the first time to enjoy them on their new-gen consoles.
While there are no plans for other games in the franchise to receive similar updates, fans are hopeful that Ubisoft will continue supporting its older titles.
