Far Cry 3’s release is just around the corner: December 4th for North American players, tomorrow for European and today for our Australian friends.

Along with the PC release comes a day-one patch, according to Ubisoft, which will look at a number of multiplayer, co-op, map editor and single player updates.

Check out the notes below and read up on Ubisoft’s tutorial on how to download the patch.
