The Deluxe Edition including all of the DLCs, installed and automatically updated through the Uplay launcher.
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.
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.
