Far Cry 3 Keeps Crashing... Help?
Well, I'm literally unable to play this game. Everything is fine up until I start a new game in story mode. The opening cutscene will play, and the game will ALWAYS minimize and stop responding sometime between when you first see Vaas and before you take control of Jason (bar one time when I was able to take control of Jason and play for about a minute, then it crashed the same way). After it minimizes, I can still hear the sound of the game, and I am unable to do anything, so I have to enter the task manager and end the task. I've tried playing on every graphics setting, Ultra, Optimum, High, Medium, Low, nothing helps. Playing with Uplay offline didn't help either. Does anyone know what's going on?
Same issue - crash immediatly after Intro to Story Mode sequence...
Exactly the same problem here... it's driving me nuts. New system, and ATI 7870 Graphics card (latest drivers..) Any one with an idea of what to try?

I need to find a solution to this, because I spent $60 on this game and I can't even play it, which pisses me off.
Try changing direct x version in games video settings .I had same problem changing to dx9 fixed it. and graphics are still stunning.
DX9 didn't fix my issue. Tried everything listed above and then some. I can usually go about 3 - 10 mins on DX9 before and issue. On DX11 It happens under 5 mins each time. I don't even have to be playing in game. I could be in the menus or at the main menu and it will still happen. All drivers are up to date.
