Far Cry 3 gets a Minecraft twist with this free PC mod

0

"You got Far Cry 3 in my Minecraft!" 'You got Minecraft in my Far Cry 3!'

I'm not sure about most players, but when I hear people talk about the Far Cry series, what comes to my mind are the scenic locales, the interesting level design and the awkward massacre of zebras. In an unique marketing move, Ubisoft has decided to team up with a Minecraft mod creator to recreate the island setting and characters found in Far Cry 3.

The map will feature key locations for players to visit, as well as tools and weapons from the upcoming game. The creators have also strewn about 50 hidden Easter Eggs through out the island, for those in the mood for a scavenger hunt. Well known Minecraft aficionado Michael "Sacr3" Lambert will be creating the island, while texture artists Axel Janssen and Yohann Delcourt will be working to bring Far Cry 3's level of high-fidelity beauty into the Minecraft's 16 by 16 blocky world.

The Far Cry 3 pack will be available to download on October 26 2012 from the official Far Cry 3 website, so now would be a good time to start sharpening that pixelated Combat Knife.
