Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon reportedly leaked via uPlay exploit

Hacker software claims to download games for free

A vulnerability in Ubisoft's Uplay launcher has reportedly enabled users to download free games from the publisher's servers, including the as yet unannounced Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.


According to Gameranx, hackers have developed software which tricks the uPlay executable into believing that the user owns games they haven't purchased, which can then be played offline, bypassing Uplay DRM.

Weighing in at 3051mb, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is reportedly in a fully playable state and only available through use of the hack.

The exploit could potentially explain how multiple users have been able to post lengthy Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon gameplay videos online since the beginning of the week.

We've requested comment from Ubisoft.
