In the meantime, EA is encouraging Dragon Age: Inquisition users who can't launch the game on a dual-core machine to ask for a refund. Ubisoft is expected to push out a Far Cry 4 patch imminently that fixes a black-screen "failure to launch" issue that occurs when you try to load the game with certain USB peripherals plugged in. Reddit users are hoping the same patch fixes the dual-core woes as well.
We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment. I don't have a dual-core system handy to test the issue. Has your pure dual-core system refused to work with Far Cry 4 or any other game? Let us know in the comments.
