Ubisoft Releases Far Cry Pack for Minecraft PC

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.

    I like the concept about minecraft. It is gameplay is decent... but I cant be sure to be happy build a blocky things on top of pixel textures @ year2012. May be I will try it again when they adopt Hexagon block + better textures.

    After the 3rd patch since I bought FarCry2, UbiSoft completely removed the DRM from the game. Now I can play it the way I want to. Even before the 3rd patch, there was a way to remove installs, so you don't go over the 5 install limit and it was possible to do it all offline.

    DRM is becoming less of an issue now with most gamers having access to the internet 24/7 and the industry understanding that a little DRM is fine but if you push us, we give you the finger and go isohunt

    Ubisoft's removed the DRM now. Don't you guys/gals read Rock, Paper, Shotgun? I am disappoint.

    I was gonna say, they said the whole DRM thing backfired big time on them, and they were done with it as far as having to have an always online connection. EA is currently the main one using that always on crap, besides MMOs, which tend to have to be online in order to play. :P

    At any rate, DRM aside, this is still a nice gesture on their behalf, even if it is a way to promote Far Cry 3.
