Some PS4 owners in Europe are reporting they have received the Russian version of Far Cry 6. Since these discs are region encoded, they are blocking those owners from being able to upgrade to the free PS5 version of the game. Ubisoft had similar distribution issues with Assassins Creed Valhalla, with owners also getting the Russian version of that game.

There is a workaround for the issue. Owners can create a Russian PlayStation account to get the upgrade, but in doing so, they will not be able to access any of the game’s DLC. Ubisoft is aware of the issue and looking into it.

Some Far Cry 6 PS4 boxed version owners are reporting that they’ve received the Russian version of the game by mistake, despite purchasing it in the UK.

Users in other European territories such as Germany and Greece are also claiming they’ve received the Russian version on Ubisoft’s official support forum, blocking their free PS5 upgrade.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
