Here’s a look at Far Cry 5’s strange DLC and massive map editor

Map editor will include content from Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs and more

Ubisoft has big plans for Far Cry 5 post-launch. In addition to the previously announced add-ons that will send players to Mars, Vietnam and a zombie-infested wasteland, Ubisoft is giving them the opportunity to make their own content with the game’s ambitious map editor, Far Cry Arcade.

Far Cry Arcade will let players create their own solo, co-op and competitive PvP levels in Far Cry 5. Ubisoft said the map editor will include more than 7,000 different objects that players can use to customize their levels with. That includes content borrowed from Far Cry 5’s campaign, as well as other Ubisoft games: Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Watch Dogs. Eventually, content from Far Cry 5’s DLC expansions (those Vietnamese jungles, Martian arachnids and zombies) will also be added to the mix.

The map editor will feature at least four game types (Assault, Outpost, Bounty Hunt and Journey), and Ubisoft is promising six content updates for the editor.

You can check out Far Cry 5’s Arcade map editor in action in the video below. A preview of the game’s three announced DLC packs — Hours of Darkness, Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies — is embedded above.

Far Cry 5 is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on March 27.
