Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 is the first-person shooter published by Ubisoft that is available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Ubisoft announced that a patch is available on Xbox 360 as well as the other platforms. In this patch, a number of highly requested features are introduced for both the single player and multiplayer modes of Far Cry 3. The new patch is available immediately and has no cost associated to it.

If you haven’t read it already, be sure to read Rachel Gray’s review of Far Cry 3. The game received a score of 83% and was, on the whole, recommended for gamers to play despite a less-than-stellar storyline. The game’s highlights include being expansive, diverse and action-oriented. The game received a perfect 10/10 score for the audio work thanks to some of the best voice acting and ambiance in a game released this year.

[adsense336itp]The patch provides new features gathered by the Far Cry 3 team from the global gaming community. Ubisoft stated in the press release that this patch is part of an on-going effort to respond to players and give them more reasons to return to the Rook Islands with the promise of tougher challenges. In the single player mode, one of the new features resets the outposts. After the end of the game, players can choose to reset the liberated outposts to face the challenge all over again. There’s also a new difficulty setting of “MASTER” so players who have completed the single player campaign can restart the whole thing on this new mode to get more challenging enemies thrown at them. Finally, there’s new HUD/UK settings, allowing for almost all of the on-screen information to be toggled on/off within the settings.

For the multiplayer more, there are four major new features included. The first is the “Map Beta Test” which offers players who upload a new map the option to publish it as a beta test to monitor how it is played and improve it before officially releasing it. Another new feature is the option to sort maps by author, so players can search all the maps specific to one creator. There’s also the “Idle Kick” function that gives the ability to kick out idle players during a multiplayer match and remove them from custom and private games. Finally, there were improvements made to the skip map voting system so that is has more visibility and time to cast votes.

Far Cry 3 is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. For the latest in Far Cry 3 news, stay tuned right here to Gaming Illustrated.
