Far Cry 4 Map Editor out now, multiplayer soon

Ubisoft is inviting you to mess around a bit with Far Cry 4, now that the game’s Map Editor is widely available. We’ve got the brand new trailer to show if off, featuring a number of new locations created by community members.

Ubisoft says:

If you haven’t had a chance to try your hand at map creation, you need to get in the game! The Map Editor is an incredibly powerful tool that lets you create, play and share your own unique challenges. Using assets from the world of Far Cry 4, you’ll be able to add everything from vehicles to elephants to AI soldiers to weapons – even a golden effigy of Pagan Min. Become a dev and let the world experience your vision!

The Map Editor will let you make four different types of maps:

  • Assault – create your own horde mode, take on waves of enemies with whatever weapons and restrictions you choose.
  • Extraction – race to the finish as you run the gauntlet of enemies, with limited time and the occasional environmental hazard.
  • Hunt – man vs. beast! Choose for yourself what creatures lurk within the wilds of Kyrat.
  • Outposts – design your own outpost takeover, populated with animals and enemies. What is the best approach? Slow and stealthy, or all-guns-blazing?

Once you perfect your design, you can upload your new Far Cry 4 map to the browser. Alternatively, if you’re not the designing type, head to the browser anyway to check out everybody else’s creations!

…and while it was announced last week that the Far Cry 4 map editor would be a single-player only affair, Ubisoft has some good news for you. In “a few weeks”, multiplayer support will be patched into the game, bringing Ajay and Hurk co-op to player-created maps around the world.

Far Cry 4 is available right now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC – and remember, don’t complain about the lack of an FOV slider, okay?
