Far Cry 5 gets 60fps fix on PS5 and Xbox Series S/X as Ubisoft announces free weekend access
Far Cry 5 has received a 60fps patch for its PS5 and Xbox Series S/X versions. As part of its fifth anniversary celebration, Ubisoft has released a free update, promising more new content on the way. The game will also get a free weekend from March 23-27 on all consoles and PC, with progression carried over to the full game if you decide to purchase it. Far Cry 5 is also on sale for up to 85% off, on Ubisoft Connect, Microsoft Store and the PlayStation Store.
Ubisoft recalls that the 60fps patch applies to all Far Cry 5 game modes, including the three main DLCs – Lost on Mars, Hours of dark and Dead Living Zombies. Those on the Xbox Series X will now be able to run the game at 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160), while the lower Xbox Series S will run it at Full HD 1080p resolution. Meanwhile, PS5 players can experience Far Cry 5 at 3K resolution (2880 x 1620). It’s unusual for Ubisoft to release a “next-gen” patch for a game released half a decade ago, in addition to promising new announcements “over the next three weeks.”

Set in the fictional gothic landscape of southern Hope County, Far Cry 5 puts you in the shoes of an unnamed junior deputy sheriff, trying to bring down Joseph Seed, a charismatic leader of the doomsday cult, whose followers are preparing flowers to extract Bliss, a drug used to convert people to their cause. Seed’s reach, however, is very extensive, requiring players to work alongside other factions to liberate locked regions from its heralds – at one point resulting in a trippy boss fight in typical Seed fashion. Far cry. It has all the hallmarks of a Far Cry title, with an emphasis on exploration and combat, which uses more melee weapons. You also have outposts to clear, bringing key locations to life on the open-world map. Far Cry 5 also includes a map editor and co-op mode, making the free weekend a great time to jump in with a friend.
Last month, Ubisoft confirmed the reason for its game delays and cancellations in recent years, saying the measures were necessary because it was producing too many games at once. The company has canceled three unannounced projects, in addition to delaying the highly anticipated naval combat title Skull and Bones for the sixth time. The elusive and somewhat controversial Beyond Good and Evil 2 also suffered a development setback, with studio chief executive Guillaume Carmona leaving the company. According to the report, the game has still not entered full production, as the developers are unable to come up with a “creative vision”.
Far Cry 5 60fps patch is out now on PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. The Free Weekend will go live on March 23 and will run until March 27 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
