Ubisoft have rolled out the Title Update 10 for Far Cry 5, adding a New Game+ mode to the popular shooter. As we've already grown to expect from similarly titled modes, it allows you to restart your Far Cry 5 campaign with your stuff there.

Well, not only stuff - your battle hardened mercenaries, or Guns for Hire as Ubisoft call them, will also be there to strut their overpowered behinds across Hope County. The Title Update 10 is already live as of yesterday and the only requirement is that you've finished Far Cry 5's campaign.

If you've managed to do so, Far Cry 5's New Game+ mode lets you keep your money, vehicles, gear, weapons, outfits, prestige items, unspent perk points, challenges progression and arcade progression. Moreover, you can spin up NG+ as many times as you'd like, boosting your character further with each take.

NG+ also brings a few extras, such as stacking of certain perks so that you can use any spare points to improve your character's abilities. Ubisoft says that this applies to ammo bags and cooldown time for your mercenaries and pets.

Far Cry 5 is getting a masochist treatment as well, with the update adding a new difficulty category aptly named Infamous. Turning it on will give AI more health, have them hit harder and react quicker to your snooping around. While the stacking of points may not have made much sense earlier - now it most certainly does.

If you manage to complete Far Cry 5 on Infamous, you'll be unlocking the Rook outfit for your character. While not overly spectacular, we guess that bragging rights take priority here. You'll also be getting Ubisoft Club Badge along with the trophy/achievement as recognition for your brave efforts in the field.

That being said, while I'm appreciative of Ubisoft's and even efforts, I keep wondering why they can't be implemented at launch. On the other hand, it does leave developers some time to think and add new stuff alongside the mode, so I guess I better get used to it.
