Far Cry 2 map editor shows the big picture

by Mike on August 22nd, 2008

Far Cry 2 is coming with a map editor, but it’s not your ordinary map editor. Normally, such editors, especially those for first-person shooters, are a tad unwieldy. And usually, map editors are released for PC versions of multiplatform games because the console editions don’t have the necessary peripherals (i.e. keyboards and mice) to manipulate such software intuitively.

Based on what we’ve seen from the Far Cry 2 map editor, that might all change. Doubtful that you can create a detailed set piece using an Xbox 360 controller? Watch the clip and it WILL change your mind.

That said, it’s still unclear if there would be a venue for created maps at Xbox Live or PSN. It would be a shame though if there weren’t, because all that power—all that ease-of-use would go to waste if the only person who can enjoy these maps is its creator.
