Ubisoft has finally released the highly anticipated ‘Update 1.4’ for the PC version of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. This update comes with global improvements in FPS for all configurations, as well as fixes for several stability issues that occurred during map loading. Kudos to Ubisoft for at least putting some effort into fixing some of the major issues that were present in the PC version of the game. We strongly believe that the company should had delayed the game’s release date in order to offer what they had initially promised, but then again that’s just us.
