Some people are complaining that the PC version of Far Cry 4 doesn’t feature a field of view slider, but there’s actually a good reason the option isn’t there.

As per Ubisoft Montreal creative director Alex Hutchinson:

The slider is in the game’s day one patch, and so isn’t available to pirates.

This isn’t the first time a developer has removed a feature so pirates would out themselves complaining about its absence.

Here are some of our favourites:

In Michael Jackson: The Experience on DS, vuvuzelas play over the game music

In Game Dev Tycoon, the player’s games don’t sell because everyone pirates them

In Mass Effect, the galaxy map doesn’t work

In Serious Sam 3, an invincible scorpion chases the player

In Comand & Conquer: Red Alert 2, the player’s base and units spontaneously explode 30 seconds into a match

In Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis the player’s ability to aim gradually gets worse and the screen blurs like you are fatigued

Earthbound completely resets and the player’s save is deleted… right near the end of the game

In Batman: Arkham Asylum, the game’s glide feature malfunctions, preventing the player from crossing a gap to continue the game. Mirror’s Edge had a similar feature with an early jump the player had to make.

It’s impossible to accrue experience in Pokémon Black/White

In The Sims 4, this happens:
