Far Cry Primal gets day one patch

Far Cry Primal has been patched, adding in a new Expert Mode difficulty setting, as well as fixing a few performance issues.

"We're happy to introduce a new difficulty setting to Far Cry Primal - Expert Mode - which will go all out and push you to the limits of your ability!" reads the Far Cry blog. "Not only will enemies be more challenging, but Takkar will be more vulnerable to attacks, making every hostile encounter a more tense battle for survival.

"Expert Mode brings a bunch of changes to how the games works, which will truly test even the most hardcore player. From reduced player aim assists to smarter enemy AI, you’ll definitely need to be on top of your game to handle what Oros has to offer."

Expert Mode Changes:

- Players’ health has been halved compared to Hard difficulty.
- Reduced players aim assist.
- AI shoots faster by 1/3
- Enemies in combat are not shown on mini map by default (they appear only if they are tagged).
- It takes the AI a longer time to “forget” you when you hide
- The aim assist box is reduced for several weapon types (bow, club, spear)
- The player damage is reduced

"Alongside the addition of the new Expert Mode, we’re also making sure to offer the best game experience possible for launch. As such, we’re providing small tweaks and changes through the Day One Patch, to ensure that your time saving the Wenja tribe goes as smoothly as possible."

Other Fixes:

- Stability & Performance o Optimization and stability have been improved o Improved lighting
- Weapons & HUD o Improved reticle display
- Wildlife & AI o Improved beast companion behavior o Fixed rare animation issues o Improved visual of the mammoth when it destroys objects o Improved animal fighting behavior when triggering a fight
- Design & progression o Tweaked and balanced XP rewards o Tweaked the damage ratio of certain recipes o Improved overall balancing
- Gameplay o Improved animations of weapons on fire o Fixed issues with lit weapons during cinematics at night o Improved player navigation and small collision issues o Improved camera transition and minor collision issues on cinematics

Glad about this. Love this game but the companion animations were very messed up with little or no variation
