Some European players eager to play Far Cry 6 on PS5 via the next-gen upgrade included with the purchase of the PlayStation 4 version of the game have discovered an unwelcome surprise.
It appears that several adventurers preparing to land on the shores of Yara have received the Russian edition of the Ubisoft game by mistake. The French software house, which had already made the same mistake with the marketing of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, would have had some issues with the game’s distribution in Europe.
The retail edition of Far Cry 6 for PlayStation 4 destined for Russia, in particular, would have made its way onto the shelves of several stores in the United Kingdom, Greece, and Germany. Only at the time of the attempted free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version of the open-world would buyers have noticed the error. In this case, the procedure is blocked, with the only possible solution being the creation of a Russian PlayStation account. While this strategy allows you to upgrade to the PS5 version, it does not allow you to redeem any bonuses associated with the purchase of special Far Cry 6 editions.
For the time being, Ubisoft has not received specific information about the issue, and aspiring revolutionaries are waiting for instructions on how to conquer the island of Yara in Far Cry 6, which is also available on PS5, even though they purchased the wrong geographical version.
