Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6 is the latest entry in the first-person open-world series from Ubisoft. It features a new location and cast of characters taking players to the island of Yara. The open world is huge, the action is plenty, and in typical Far Cry fashion, there is a lot to do. The title is out on multiple platforms, including PC via Ubisoft Store, and the Epic Games Store. While the game runs well, for the most part, there are some technical missteps. If you want to fix the Far Cry 6 FOV issue on PC, here is how you can do that.

Ubisoft hasn’t been releasing their titles on Steam, and it’s most likely due to the 30% cut Steam takes from each sale. Maybe they will consider going back to the store in the future, but for now, PC gamers have to either buy the title from Epic or directly through Ubisoft.

Fixing the Far Cry 6 FOV Issue

In Far Cry 6, no matter what FOV value you set it to, the game goes back to the default value when you are in a vehicle, on a horse, or are swimming. This can create a pretty jarring effect, and the FOV doesn’t feel consistent at all.

Thankfully, Reddit users  /u/killer-m & /u/Wintermance have come up with a fix that completely removes the issue, and ensures a consistent FOV is maintained.

Download and install HxD

  • First, you need to download and install the HexEditor

  • After this click on Search Direction “All”
  • In the Search for section, enter 84 D2 74 19 F3 0F 10 05

After you launch the game again, you will notice how the FOV remains maintained throughout gameplay no matter what you do. It is possible that you might have to re-do these steps if there is an update, but usually, that isn’t the case.

We hope developers deploy a fix for this, as console players have to face the same problem.
