Far Cry 3 Updates Will Enable Outposts Reset, Harder Difficulty, New Mechanics

Plenty of new things are going to be patched into the game

Ubisoft has just confirmed that it's going to release multiple updates for Far Cry 3 that will include new features for the game's single-player and multiplayer modes, as well as new settings for those who create new maps for the title.

Far Cry 3 came out in December and has since impressed millions of people from all around the world with its surprisingly great shooter gameplay, not to mention the huge open world as well as the cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences.

Since its release, Ubisoft has rolled out various updates and patches that not only eliminated different bugs and glitches but also added new mechanics and settings, like the ability to completely turn off the heads-up display, for a more immersive experience.

Now, the publisher has revealed on its forums that it's carefully studied the feedback received from fans and decided to add even more new features and options into Far Cry 3 via free updates.

The most important will be a new single-player setting that allows players to reset the outposts they've liberated throughout the campaign.

"Taking over an outpost as a player also presents a fun challenge; everything from how to approach the outpost to what weapons and tactics to use. Hence, a lot of community members have requested to be able to ‘reset’ the outposts, so that they can be taken-over again," Ubisoft said on its forums.

The new option will allow players, after they've completed the game, to reset the outposts and attempt to conquer them once more in order to uncover their hidden missions.

What's more, future updates will also include a brand new difficulty setting called Master, which should provide an even bigger challenge for players.

"For those that have already completed the game on Adventurer, Survivor or Warrior settings and are looking for the next bill challenge, the all-new MASTER difficulty setting will be added in an upcoming patch of the game. Seasoned veterans will find themselves challenged by more aggressive wildlife, tougher pirates, and more deadly privateers. Your skills as a master of the Rook Islands will be tested."

What's more, new mechanics are also coming to the map editor, as creators can receive more feedback on their work, as well as put it into a beta test.

Expect new patches and updates to appear for Far Cry 3 in the near future.
