What works

Installing through Uplay.

Running (with the Uplay overlay disabled).

Changing the game settings.

Playing the first missions.

What does not

If you play the game in a windowed mode, you might experience problems with 360-degree head movement.

I experienced game crashes at start - then, after I solved them, sound issues.


Some workarounds might be needed to install and use the Uplay launcher - see its AppDB page.

I configured the Wine prefix for Wine to run in a virtual desktop, for maintenance reasons. Whatever your choice is, it's better to configure the game to run in full screen, or you might experience problems with 360-degree head movement.

At the first times I launched the game, it crashed after the "Far Cry 3" splash screen. Since I have installed DXVK into the Wine prefix (sudo apt-get install libvulkan1 vulkan-tools, then winetricks dxvk92 in the prefix), such crashes are history.

I also got a few sound issues while playing, such as unwanted background noise and crackling. I solved that by adding an override for the library xaudio2_7.dll (as native).

What was not tested

"Uplay" main menu option.

Additional Comments

I made this test with a new 64-bit Wine prefix. 

At launching the game, an error alert box about FCUpdater.exe may appear. You can close it safely, that has no more effects on the gaming experience.
