Observe the Far Cry 3 Map Editor in action

Make places for you and your friends to blow up

Far Cry 3 releases later this week (unless you’re in North America and have to wait until next week, which should happen now and again if we’re going to be fair about things) and it’s looking pretty tight. Perhaps even — and I’m going to have to try and sound this one out — “tiz-ight.”

People say that. Stop looking at me.

In an effort to raise awareness, Ubisoft released this promotional video demonstrating features of the map editor players will enjoy in Far Cry 3. Guided by the silky voice of Level Design Director Mark Thompson, you’ll be exposed to terrain modification, objects and themes. And you might just learn a little bit about sharing. At least, in the context of sharing user-generated content. This isn’t a kindergarten.

We will have our very own review of Far Cry 3 soon!
