    I have it on Uplay, so in theory an Oceanic VPN should unlock it much earlier? Nice!

    I think it's universal so tomorrow in roughly 28 hours assuming standard Steam unlock times though UPlay could be a bit faster.

    If not and it's on a region basis then Australia and New Zealand should be first in I think that's in around 50 minutes, SteamDB should show a update to the games unlock status for these regions if so followed by Asia about an hour afterwards and ticking from that.
    (Assuming it's a midnight unlock.)

    Read the performance article as well, good to see 18.3.4 coming in today and then 391.xx tomorrow for AMD and NVIDIA respectively for supporting this game even better. :)

    Interesting to hear about the rapid math feature too although I'm not too sure how it's been implemented here but from the German PC Game website interview it seems like they check on a per shader basis with precision and if it's not too big of a difference to image quality it can be changed from 32bit to 16bit and then Vega can do it's 2x 16-bit calculations and gain a slight speed bump, water was mentioned specifically but I don't think there's much if any visual difference.
    (Compared to something like Battlefield and Frostbite for example where they already use temporal reconstruction via previous frames for speed which while it has a performance benefit there is also noticeable ghosting occasionally.)


    EDIT: Ah so it could be on a regional unlock time, nice. :)
    Should be a fun little shooter experience, only complaint I keep hearing is the AI is as usual pretty cheap and tend to spawn in quickly though probably not as tough as Far Cry 2 and it's suicidal vehicle drivers appearing from nowhere plus the checkpoint system. :p

    Nice. :)

    EDIT: 15 hours reported on Steam and no changes on SteamDB though going by the clock it's still around 10 minutes early so it could still change.

    Any tips on where to buy it? The SEK is totally worthless now except perhaps vs $

    Otherwise I'll just get it from GMG and be done with it.

    Yeah, Steam seems to be the most expensive as usual and registered key sites such as Gameplanet or Greenman don't have the best discounts either plus these are all UPlay store keys so if you want it on Steam there's less options at least from affiliated stores.
    (There's a few more options for UPlay keys at least, I'm guessing Ubisoft isn't directly providing Steam activation keys for partner sites.)

    Thanks for sharing, seems to review solid over the board.

    Eurogamer did their usual more-talk-of-lack-of-social-commentary-than-actual-gameplay review so make of it what you will...

    in general seems less positive reviews were hoping for a more serious take on the setting.
    Whereas positive ones got pretty much what they wanted, a fun sandbox shooting gallery (many of which commended the gunplay which is pretty important for a shooter).

    Me? Will likely pick this up later once it drops a bit in price.

    That was also mentioned quite often, not that different from 3, 4 or Primal and AI less than stellar.

    Not an issue for me though as FC 2 is the last Far Cry game I played.

    Incidentally my latest AC game is AC 2... so buy a Ubi series game once in a decade so they feel fresh :p

    How does uplay account link work? I don't see any cd keys in the game's page in my game list (steam).

    Errr. ... what happened to the release date? My steam store page (UAE) says 10th April.

    Edit: nvm, ffs. They delayed the game in the middle east and north africa because they want to add Arabic. What a waste of time, refunding.

    in Uplay store the game unlocks almost 5hrs before Steam

    for me (middle-eastern) the game unlocks after 2 weeks from now :(

    however UPLAY store claims it'll unlock it for my region 4hrs from now :D
