I pre-ordered the deluxe edition of this on Steam. I still have to wait 5 more days from today (Nov. 29th, 2012) before I can play it on the 4th of December (more liek the 5th because Steam always releases their games at 11pm the night before). It's released at retail stores today but not on Steam. So what's the hold up? The forum for Far Cry 3 is not available on Steam yet so I wondering if anyone had any ideas why it's being released so much later for Steam than for retail stores? I've only seen this happen with a couple of other titles on Steam where retail was released before but I never really understood why or what their reason was. Thanks! Looking forward to the 4th or 5th when I can play it.

Far Cry 3 Steam forum:

You are correct the Euromoan gets to beta test this before you, mind you its not even getting released on Steam in the UK.

You really shouldn't be crying about it, you guys over in america are actually lucky.

Let me explain...

The game has been released over here in NZ/AUS, but at the time of this post we still cannot play it due to them doing some maintenance on the server.

Before you say "But ubi removed their DRM and you don't need online to play the single player portion" (or something along those lines). I am experiencing some glitch where if the servers are down and if I try to craft something or even enter the submenu, the entire game locks up and becomes unplayable.

There is still no estimate when it will be back online.

I'll gladly wait for a non-buggy experience. Besides, plenty of other games have come out recently that I am still having fun with.

Just in case you haven't sorted it out yet, or the servers go down again, the solution is to switch the UPLAY launcher into Offline Mode, then you can play normally. Your main menu no longer contains Co-Op or Multiplayer, but you can access all of the Single Player stuff no problem. All of your inventory work properly in this mode too.

Happy Hunting

RubberStig is right, you needed to play with uPlay in offline mode in order to play the game. There is a little cog in the top right that allows you to set it to "Always launch in offline mode".

Also the UK still doesn't have Far Cry 3 on steam and european mates are not allowed to purchase it and send it to you either.

It is some bull**** pressuring from retail company in the UK to stop online sales from steam. The funny thing is you can still just go to Amazon and bypass the retails anyway.
