The new mobile companion, called Far Cry 3 Outpost, for the game has been announced for both Android and iOS devices, and users can make use of them while they are playing the game. With the new app for Multiplayer and Co-op, players can decode the encrypted data found during game sessions to earn advanced weapon modes and customize their Loadouts on the move.

Far Cry 3 Outpost also allows players to keep track of their progress through the daily and weekly challenges, check out their stats and compare with their friends, and even tracking the maps created via the in-game map editor.

"Join your friends and get ahead in the game with the Far Cry 3 mobile app for multiplayer and co-op. Earn advanced weapon mods for your favorite guns and customize your loadouts on the go! The next time you jump into a multiplayer match or co-op chapter, you'll be ready to play," the official Google Play page states.

Check out the detailed list of features below:

  • Decode the encrypted data you find in-game to unlock advanced weapon mods and earn bonus XP. Don't wait until you're playing the game to start decoding. Instead, decode on the go! Once you unlock a weapon mod, you can accept it, give it to one of your friends or sell it for more XP straight from your phone.
  • View and customize your loadouts so that you're ready to play once you're back in the game.
  • Keep track of your progress through the Daily and Weekly Challenges. Completing these challenges will earn you XP.
  • Check out your personal stats and the stats of your friends, including time played, level, top weapons, awards and more.
  • Keep track of the maps you've made in the Map Editor. You can follow the current tier placements and how many people have liked your maps.

However, there is a problem. Many users have already downloaded the app for their devices (Android) and are currently complaining about the app's usability. Users have several different things to say about the app as reviews, although everyone agrees to the fact that the app is force closing itself after ten minutes, with users also stating that the app crashes as soon as the stats section is opened.

The iOS version, as of now, seems much smoother.

Nonetheless, the app is available for both Android and iOS. Check out the video below
