Players will be able to customise their Far Cry 3 multiplayer weapon load-outs via their web browser and a mobile app.

Speaking to VG24/7, Ubisoft Montreal lead designer Mark Thompson confirmed: "The multiplayer experience has three main components: PVP with multiple different game modes and a strong team based component; a 4 player co-op campaign independent of the single player story; and the return of the map editor allowing players to create and share their own maps.

"On top of that we have other community enriching features with web to game content that allows players to build their load outs outside of the game through a browser or smart phone."

"You can also unlock and share in-game rewards through the web based content, and your online profile is consistent across PVP and co-op so gaining XP and rewards will help in all aspects of multiplayer.

"There are also social aspects of the single player campaign that we haven't revealed yet that will bring out the competitive streak in players."

Far Cry 3 arrives in the UK on November 30 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
