Far Cry 3 to add outpost respawns, “Master” difficulty

Tuesday, 19th February 2013 01:38 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ubisoft Montreal has outlined a number of new features headed to Far Cry 3 in upcoming patches, including the much-requested option to reset outposts.

In a post on the Ubisoft forums, the publisher said it will add a menu option to reset all outposts. The option will become available once the game has been completed and all outposts taken. Any incomplete sidequests attached to reset outposts will be unavailable until the player takes the outpost again.

A new difficulty setting, Master, will become available in single-player, offering “more aggressive wildlife, tougher pirates, and more deadly privateers”. it’s not clear whether the option will be available immediately or require a playthrough on the Warrior setting.

On the multiplayer side, a feedback menu will be added, so that after a match, players can tell Ubisoft what they thought of a particular map.

User-created maps will soon have the option to release in “beta” mode, allowing users who have volunteered to beta test the chance to check it out. This should help creators get feedback on maps despite the ever-increasing number of custom creations out there, and a new spectator mode means you can watch over your creation in action. If you like what you see when playing a custom map, you’ll be able to search by author.

Finally, the idle kick timer will be made optional on custom matches, and the skip map voting feature will be extended.

No dates on any of these features as yet.

Thanks, Shack News.

    Wow now, for a minute now i thought they would be bringing back the stuff people hated in FC2. But it’s good to know it’s only after finishing it.

    A friend of mine gave me his PC copy to test my PC performance. I thought my PC would easily handle this game. i7 950 stock, 6gb ram and GTX 480. I couldn’t get more than 30-40FPS on medium, and nothing more than 20 on very high…

    Is this game so unpolished? It’s the first time I’m considering buying a game that’s available on PC for my PS3.

    “Master” difficulty? Sure!

    I’ve already finished the game with a little help from a Far Cry guide so I think I could handle it.

    @CyberMarco I think you’ll need to tweak the video settings so that your video card could handle the game.
