Far Cry 3 erects free Outpost app for mobile multiplayer decoding


A free, legitimately useful Far Cry 3 app just washed up on the shores of iOS and Android, allowing violent vacationers an opportunity to monitor their multiplayer progress and customize loadouts when away from the game. The "Far Cry The Outpost" app decodes your in-game encrypted data for immediate rewards through a smartphone or tablet, unlocking weapon mods that can be kept, given away or sold for additional experience points.

On top of the decoding stuff, The Outpost also provides a landmark for weapon loadout customization, cataloguing tweaks for the next time you play. Other dedicated sections allow tech-savvy vacationers to keep an eye on their own progress on the daily and weekly challenges lists, plus leaderboards and light map editor tracking. Not included: suggestions for how to handle a bad mushroom trip on an island full of deranged murderers.

About Far Cry3:

Far beyond the limits of civilization lies an island, a lawless place ruled by violence and human suffering, where your only escape is through drugs or the muzzle of a gun.

Discover the island's bloody secrets and take the fight to the enemy; improvise and use your environment to your advantage; and outwit its roster of ruthless, deranged inhabitants. Beware the beauty and mystery of this island of insanity. You'll need more than luck to escape alive.
