The Far Cry series feels like it’s always had some kind of official content creation for players to mess around with. Well, starting with the second game, anyway. It wasn’t in the original. Unfortunately, the Far Cry team confirmed that Far Cry 6, the newest game in the series launching later this year, won’t have a map editor at all. You’ll have to go back to older games in the series if you want to explore maps painstakingly built by other players using official tools. Of course, this doesn’t mean that intrepid modders won’t still find a way to put their own maps in the game.
This information was revealed during an Ask Me Anything on the official Far Cry subreddit. Reddit user DANNYonPC asked the devs if Far Cry 5‘s Arcade Mode would return in any form, and the game’s director, Alexander Letendre responded. Mr. Letendre had the following to say: “No, Arcade will not come back. Removing this mode from our plan was a difficult decision, but allowed us to focus our efforts on the main campaign, transporting players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution.” I’m sure this is disappointing news for fans, but hopefully this extra focus on the campaign will make a difference in the final product.
Far Cry 6 map editor
Naturally, there were many more details to be gleaned from other questions. Takedowns will return to Far Cry 6, while weapon tiers from New Dawn will not. The game will also feature a wide variety of vehicles again, from cars to aircraft. Co-op will return, too, using the tether system from the last game, as will hunting wildlife for resources. Even the wingsuit will make an appearance on Yara, but it won’t be super easy to get your hands on. While it’s a bit sad that the map editor is gone, it at least sounds like there’ll be plenty on offer to keep fans occupied regardless.
