A big part of Far Cry 3’s single player experience is taking over the outposts manned by Vaas’s pirates and Hoyt’s privateers. These outposts, when taken, offer a safe place to resupply as well as a base of operations when exploring new parts of the Rook Islands.
Taking over an outpost as a player also presents a fun challenge; everything from how to approach the outpost to what weapons and tactics to use. Hence, a lot of community members have requested to be able to ‘reset’ the outposts, so that they can be taken-over again.
Here is how it works:
• After conquering all the outposts and completing the game, the player can reset the outposts by selecting “Reset Outposts” in the gameplay options menu.
• Doing this will reset and make all Outposts hostile again. All incomplete side missions and quests will become hidden. In order to finish the incomplete side missions, you will have to retake the outposts again.
No word on when it will be available, but this is the feature I've wanted since the minute I beat the game the first time. The patch will also introduce a new difficulty mode, Master, which will have "more aggressive wildlife, tougher pirates, and more deadly privateers."
Now the only thing I want in this game is more weapons. Also I'm now debating if I should go ahead and start up a new game or wait until the patch. Escaping that beginning section just takes forever.

Just give me the grenade launcher from Far Cry 2 and I will be fine :P

Nice. They need to address the attachment issue too. If I want to attach a scope, silencer and extended clip then let me. It's foolish to limit the player in that area.
FC3 was my 2012 goty. I'll gladly run back through it once my cousin return it to me.F.T.P
Since they have stealth in this game though it would probably work a lot better. The first smoke round hitting wouldn't automatically let them know where you're at.
This patch is now live for both PS3 and 360. Sorry mods for the double post and reviving of an old thread, but I didn't want to make another one for the same topic and only two weeks later.
Loaded up my completed game and just reset all the outposts. I'm tired and just turned off the system but I have a feeling I'm going to hop on tomorrow and have fun taking over the outposts from the early game with my new weapons.
Once I hit the option to reset the outposts I got booted to Amanaki town. It looks as though you can still use any of the fast travel locations except the outpost ones (obviously). Also, it appears to reset the outposts they must ALL be captured.

So its not going to be like FC2 is it where you kill everyone move about 5 feet and there back again or go off screen and there back all over the outpost again,

The outpost thing in FC3 is totally different than FC2. You clear an outpost and that outpost gets populated with your friendlies, as does the surrounding area.
