Last month Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 5 would receive some wacky DLC packs after its launch on March 27. That’s not the end of it, though! Today they’ve announced one more big feature for Far Cry 5: the Far Cry Arcade!
The Far Cry Arcade is a free, built-in feature of Far Cry 5 that is one big user creation hub. Players can play and create their own maps and game modes, including single player, co-op, and 12-player competitive maps. The possibilities are truly endless here!
The map editor will be the largest editor that any Far Cry game has gotten to date. There are over 9,000 assets that you can use to build your maps, including assets from other Ubisoft games like Watch Dogs and the Assassin’s Creed games. Players will be able to create some really unique looking maps considering how different each game looks. You’ll also be able to pull assets from the aforementioned DLC packs if you own them!
To help the community find the best maps, Ubisoft will also launch a website dedicated to the Far Cry Arcade. You’ll be able to view the most popular maps, favorite maps and players, and see maps from specific game modes. Ubisoft will also run their own community events every Friday night to showcase their own maps or featured community maps.
No matter what you’re doing in the Arcade, you’ll be earning in-game money and perk points, which can be spent to customize your Arcade character. You can also spend your perk points in the single player campaign. It’s a win-win situation!
With an impressive line-up of features to come, Far Cry 5 is already looking to be quite the heavy hitter. Stay tuned for more information when it drops on March 27, 2018.
