Far Cry 5 drops a new update today, and while it doesn’t add a lot of new content, it does squash one of the game’s most pernicious bugs. Upon beating the game, some Far Cry 5 players found that whenever they loaded their save file, they’d be forced to watch the credits again, after which they’d be dumped back to the main menu. This infinite loop made any sort of post-game play impossible. Thankfully, the new update fixes the credit bug, along with plenty of other issues. It also adds the welcome option to re-do your character.

Check out the full notes for Far Cry 5 patch 1.05, below:
