We've been enjoying the fun sandbox offered by Far Cry 5 since March, whether that be taking down cultists or getting mauled by bears at every turn, and now Ubisoft has revealed the patch notes for Title Update 8, which includes the addition of Photo Mode, available today via the main menu.

There are plenty of other new additions aside from this, including Arcade Editor assets, a new Lobby Browser for Arcade, and the usual amount of tweaks and bug fixes, all of which you can see in the full patch notes below (beware - it's a long list).
