Ubisoft has previously teased a patch for Far Cry 3 that would allow players to reset outposts, tailor the HUD, and add an extra hard difficulty setting, but it was never clear when this would come out until today as the publisher just announced that the patch is out now on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

All of these features are based on fan request, and now players can retackle the outpost missions - arguably the highlight of the game - in the uber challenging Master difficulty. And they'll be able to do it while looking at less screen clutter to boot with the newly customisable HUD.

New multiplayer features allow players to beta test their user-created maps to gain feedback on them before releasing them to everyone, maps are now searchable by author, the "idle kick" feature that removes idle players is removed from custom and private matches, and the Skip map voting system now has more visibility and allots players more time to cast their votes.
