Who doesn't love islands populated by psychopaths? Well, Far Cry 3 is giving players some more reasons to revisit the island, after today's patch. Ubisoft noted that they were rather diligent in listening to the fans, and after much of that listening, put together today's update.
The idea here is added replayability, to get players going back to Rook Island with tougher challenges and rediscovering the world. Oh, and multiplayer gets a few improvements too, including the more prominent "Skip map" option, and no longer being able to kick idle players from custom and private matches.
Here's the brief rundown:
- 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.
- New HUD/UK settings: allowing most on-screen information can be toggled on/off in the settings.
- Map Beta Test: Players who upload a new map can now publish it as a beta test to monitor how it is played and improve it before releasing to other players.
- Maps by author: Players will be able to search 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
Rest assured the patch is available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions. No delays here.
