Far Cry 5 players have already created Counter-Strike, PUBG and Call of Duty maps

It begins!

Far Cry 5’s arcade mode is one of the most interesting parts of the game, allowing players to create their own maps and challenges to share with others. You can even earn in-game currency and perks by playing through maps created by the community.

Of course, players are using these tools to recreate the games they love, and the results are rocketing to the top of the mode’s charts. This version of Counter-Strike’s legendary de_dust2 map allows players to tap into their memories of the original for effective strategies.

And obviously someone jumped straight into designing their take on PUBG. It looks pretty good!

Here’s the Far Cry 5 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops’ Nuketown map:

And someone has even tried to recreate the Baker house from Resident Evil 7 biohazard.

This is impressive work considering that Far Cry 5 was released yesterday. The arcade mode is likely to continue to spit out surprises, as enterprising creators learn how to really manipulate the tools for new maps and ways to surprise players.

It’s not surprising that so many people are starting this process by recreating things they know and love, but the next step — when new ideas come out of the powerful level creation tools — should be even more exciting.
