Far Cry 3 wont start, just keeps saying I need to install update

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Redeemed FC3 key on Uplay. Downloaded it, clicked play and the updater started its thing and stopped. Clicked play again and it said it was going to open a page to download a patch. Downloaded that and it said it wouldnt install because I was at 1.00. Downloaded patch 1.03 and installed but weird thing on that it said 1.04 on the pop up window. Now I was able to install the patch from the website.

Got all that done and clicked play and it just keeps popping up saying it was going to open a web page to download patch which I had already done or it'll say that it can't open game. Ran the updater again and it downloaded patch 1.05. Installed and now when I click play, a pop up says I should reinstall game to fix problem or the play button doesnt do anything.

Can you try running it offline?

I only installed the game itself. When it tells me to download patch I cancelled then went offline. Works fine so far.
