Far Cry 3 patch brings new features to consoles

Including Master difficulty level and the option to reset enemy outposts

Ubisoft has released Far Cry 3 patch 1.05 on consoles.


Launched yesterday on PC, the patch introduces a number of new campaign and multiplayer features which the publisher says are based on community feedback. These include:

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


  • Map Beta Test: Map makers can now start a beta test to monitor how their map is being played using the new spectate feature and regular players are enabled to provide better feedback to help map makers improve their projects
  • Maps by author: Players will be able to show 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
  • A new mini-game called The Grid has been added to the Outpost website and smartphone apps

Patch 1.05 also makes a load of fixes, which we detailed yesterday.
