Ubisoft said on Friday that it has released the Far Cry 3-inspired map and texture pack for Mojang's hit first-person sandbox PC game, Minecraft. The zipped bundle weighs in at 851 MB, and can be downloaded directly from Ubisoft here.
"This pack allows users to explore and survive the Minecraft experience through the warped lens of Far Cry 3, with modifications to all aspects of the original game, including environments, weapons and tools," the company said. "Discover key Far Cry 3 locations and characters, including Vaas, Jason and Citra, all completely redesigned in Minecraft style. The map also features over 50 Easter Eggs, hidden throughout the Islands."
The Far Cry map was created by popular Minecraft modder Michael "Sacr3" Lambert who previously built the impressive Newcraft City map. Artists Axel Janssen and Yohann Delcourt provided the textures that are used throughout this new "Farcraft" mod.
Minecraft players looking for other popular PC gaming-based realms can look no further than Crafting Azeroth, a massive unofficial project that aims to bring the entire landscape of World of Warcraft into Minecraft. The first beta has been released, weighing 2.17 GB as a zip file and 24 GB unzipped. Minecraft modder Rumsey said the map was created using custom software that can convert Blizzard's MMORPG into blocks.
As for Ubisoft's Far Cry 3, the shooter is scheduled to release for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on November 29, 2012 across EMEA and on December 4, 2012 in North America.
