Far Cry fans can surely agree, one of the best parts about the series is the ability to mess around. Ubisoft supports that idea, and now they’re giving you all the time in the world to play around their most recent island jungle creation of awesome. A new single player “Reset Outposts” option will let you free the trapped bear or tiger or whatever and conquer them all over again. Multiplayer map creation updates will make map creation more smooth, easier to control, provide better feedback, and take away the need to publish a map just to use it.
Detailed in full on the Ubisoft Forums, this is a response to user feedback. Of course, there are still things bothering the fans, but this is a good thing in a world that tends to only fix the bugs and move on. The ability to reset outposts after you’ve beaten the game and conquered them all allows the user to get in some more gun time (or knife, or RPG, or… bear). The new Master difficulty will apparently test all of your skills. It’s difficulty description is something else entirely and will make any veterans of Far Cry 2
cringe at understand their seriousness. Worse than Malaria. Yup. It’s on like Donkey Kong.
Despite the fantastic single player, most of the benefits are fitting to their weak point. Many users have complained about their issues and the lack of features compared to the last few titles. Ubisoft hopes to address some of that. Custom maps will now get a feedback system. What sort of map was it? Was there too much/little/enough cover? Was the points-per-minute up to snuff (was the maker providing enough action). So on. It also allows for a Beta-Test option, so that people can play specifically beta maps, while the map creator watches in a spectator mode and views how things are going
There’s no confirmed release date at this time.
