Far Cry 3 update brings harder difficulty and outpost respawns

Format:
Ubisoft has a major free update planned for its acclaimed shooter Far Cry 3

Release Date: 19/02/2013

Ubisoft has a major free update planned for its acclaimed shooter Far Cry 3, bringing features much requested by the game's fanbase. The announcement was made on the game's official forum.

Top of the list is the ability to reset the various pirate outposts dotted around the blood-soaked madhouse of Rook Islands. Arguably the best bits of an already excellent game, these outposts find you trying to clear locations of enemies, using stealth and guile where possible. And explosive arrows and lots of bullets when that fails. And sometimes a tiger.

The sense of sadness you felt when you'd beaten all the outposts will now turn to elation once you can reset and respawn any completed location, allowing you to creep, sneak and slay as many times as you like. You'll need to have finished the story in order to do this, as only then will the option appear in the menu. Any incomplete side missions, such as hunting challenges, related to each outpost will also be reset.

The update will also introduce a new Master difficulty setting. "Seasoned veterans will find themselves challenged by more aggressive wildlife, tougher pirates, and more deadly privateers," read Ubisoft's post. "Your skills as a master of the Rook Islands will be tested." Again, you'll need to have finished the game on Adventurer, Survivor or Warrior difficulty before the option is available.

Ubisoft has yet to confirm when this update will go live, but it's great to see a publisher continuing to improve and support its games months after release, based on fan feedback.

Far Cry 3, one of the very best games of 2012, is out now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
