Ubisoft’s world cannot continue to turn unless it’s accompanied by an aggravated community, and the Far Cry 4 map editor is no exception to this rule; at present, it only supports single player maps. No co-op maps, no competitive multiplayer maps.
The Far Cry map creation community is understandably a bit pissed off about this, since that kind of multiplayer functionality is what made Far Cry 3’s map editor such a big hit in the first place. Ubisoft claims that co-op maps are coming to Far Cry 4’s editor, but seems a lot less sure about other multiplayer maps.
With all that in mind, this trailer for the map editor doesn’t quite tell the whole story. Sure, dropping down a bunch of elephants for a single player skirmish map will be fun, but it’s a step back from what people used to be able to do with this tool.
Rather a shame, and hopefully the map editor will be restored to its former glory with future updates.
