Far Cry 4 Black Screen problems after 1.4.0 fix

By Alan Ng - Nov 25, 2014

Earlier on this week, we informed PC players of Far Cry 4 that a new update was imminent. Now, as of a few hours ago we can confirm that the Far Cry 4 1.4.0 update is live, however we are still getting many reports from you telling us that the Far Cry 4 black screen problems are still happening.

To recap, Ubisoft said on their blog that the Far Cry 4 1.4.0 patch should specifically fix the black screen issues that many of you were having.

We also told you that this update would fix grey screen problems in Far Cry 4 when reaching the end of an Outpost Master mission.


However, since updating many gamers are finding out that the problems still persist and are frantically trying to contact Ubisoft regarding a solution – It doesn’t look particularly pretty does it, as you can see above.

For evidence of this, simply read through the comments underneath the Far Cry 4 1.4.0 patch notes post to see for yourself. Almost every comment mentions that the black screen problem is still not fixed 100%, suggesting that Ubisoft may need to prepare a Far Cry 4 1.5.0 update sooner than they had expected.

The developers are keeping a rolling update blog here with any news on the game as it happens, but so far there is no updated statement regarding the fact that so many of you are still having problems after installing 1.4.0.

Tell us your situation at the moment. Did the 1.4.0 update provide the Far Cry 4 black screen fix that you were looking for or not? We’ll update you when we have something to share on this matter.
