Far Cry 4, the latest entry in Ubisoft’s “setting things on fire in exotic places” series, has an option called Field of View Scaling that is more essential than it sounds – if the FOV level isn’t configured properly, something as simple as taking a ride on a scooter can turn into a drug-fueled nightmare. However, when the game was released on PC, some players noticed that this feature was mysteriously absent from their copy: If they went into the settings menu, an empty space would mock them from the spot where the FOV option should be.
Naturally, outraged players took to places like Reddit to lambast Ubisoft for this irresponsible oversight … just as the company planned it (this one time, anyway). Turns out the developers intentionally left out this option from the game, adding it on release day through an update patch only lawful players could get. The result? Pirates accidentally outing themselves and getting publicly shamed by Far Cry 4’s director on Twitter.
