Far Cry 3 has had its fair share of issues since launch in late 2012, but Ubisoft has diligently set about releasing regular patches to massage away some of the more glaring and frustrating problems we’ve encountered over the last few months.
The latest Far Cry 3 title update, however, brings with it new features that fans of the game have apparently been asking for, including better support for custom-built multiplayer maps and a higher difficulty mode for those who have finished the game.
“Based on community feedback gathered by the Far Cry 3 team,” writes Ubisoft, “the features added or tweaked by this patch are an on-going effort to respond to players and give them more reasons to re-visit Rook Islands, to improve their skills with tougher challenges, and to re-discover the Far Cry 3 world.”
The patch is now live and available to download across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC – find out what it does below:
- Outposts reset: after the end of the game, players can choose to reset the liberated outposts to face the challenge to take them over again
- A new difficulty setting: Players who have completed the campaign can restart the adventure on MASTER difficulty, with more challenging enemies and dangerous wildlife
- Map Beta Test: Map makers can now start a beta test to monitor how their map is being played using the new spectate feature and regular players are enabled to provide better feedback to help map makers improve their projects.
- Maps by author: Players will be able to show all the maps created by an author
- Idle kick: The feature that kicks out idle players during a MP match is removed from custom and private matches
- The Skip map voting system has been improved with more visibility and time to cast the vote
- A new mini-game called The Grid has been added to the Outpost website and smartphone apps.
