Many Fry Cry 4 users worldwide have been complaining since yesterday’s launch about a missing field of vision (FOV) slider. But wait, what’s this?

Yes, that is an FOV slider, as this screenshot is of the genuine Fry Cry 4 release. Fry Cry director Alex Hutchinson revealed on Twitter that this FOV slider was added in a day one patch.
PC players! If you're online complaining about the lack of FOV control … You pirated the game.

Red faces all over Twitter and Reddit as a result, but it has opened the debate on pirating games.
.@BangBangClick and that is why a lot of game Devs don't optimize PC games…

@BangBangClick I did. It didn't help. It's a widespread problem. You wouldn't know because you don't give a shit about PC.

@BangBangClick terrible that there are people replying to you, trying to justify their reasons for piracy.

So far the launch of Far Cry 4 has gone very well, escaping the technical issues that have plagued the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity.
