Far Cry 3 Map Editor Trailer

Here's a new video showing off the power of the map editor that will accompany Far Cry 3 when the first-person shooter sequel is released next month. Word is: "Create your own tropical oasis, or a jungle death trap, or anything else you can imagine, with the in-game map editor for Far Cry 3. A deep and varied library of set pieces allow for endless possibilities. Plan every last detail from the flora and fauna to the derelict tanker crashed up on a rocky beach. Build your own adventure or download top rated maps from the community, free of charge. What the trailer now to see how."

Empowering PC gamers like this is always a good thing. A big F U to CoD/BF/Etc.

except, it's just half backed mod support. No way to import new assets into it, no single player campaign making, no new multiplayer modes etc.

no dedicated servers either, multiplayer is peer-2-peer with "host migration".

this is more a single player game but it sucks they didn't put more effort into supporting the PC properly with dedicated servers at least.

I can't really disagree with any of that but I will take a map editor over the alternative of nothing. Some pretty creative maps were made in Counter-Strike long before people knew how to import third party assets. The real shame is the lack of dedicated servers, they are a huge community builder.
