Far Cry 3 Patch Now Available, Updates Reflect Fan Feedback

Far Cry 3 was one of the very best experiences a gamer could have in 2012. But there's always room for improvement.

Today, Ubisoft has announced the arrival of a new patch for the award-winning open-world shooter, and this update "introduces a number of new features requested by players on both single player and multiplayer modes." This patch is now available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game. So go download it!

The following additions and enhancements were based on feedback gathered by the FC3 team:

SINGLE PLAYER:

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.

MULTIPLAYER:

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.

Excellent. Dillon was telling me this patch was on the way a few days ago, glad to see it's available now. Must install.

I am sorry to say that I have STILL not gotten to play this game. I got it for xmas and it's laying there, waiting to be opened.

I got a game overdose.

I was literally just playing this yesterday clearing some remaining posts, and thought it would be cool if you could turn off the minimap and just explore that way. Now, if they'll just add vehicles back into multiplayer online I'll be happy..

I can't edit my post, so I'm replying. Of course that's the one thing you can't remove...
