Far Cry New Dawn March 14 update includes lots of fixes and tweaks

Ubisoft’s Far Cry, the New Dawn has received a brand new update 1.0.4. This update development for New Dawn is supposed to fix a lot of issues, both known and discovered by the developers. The developer has already published the patch notes for 1.0.4.

With a huge number of gameplay fixes, this update is considered to be the first update out of many that help the user navigate easier. That being said, it adds a guide to the home base helipad. The update is deemed to develop many weapon tweaks, but also improve ragdoll reactions.

When it comes to bugs, it definitely eliminates a couple of them. Players will no longer lose their weapons after Outpost Celebration and there will be no ammo missing after reloading.
