Minecryft: The Official Far Cry 3 Mod For Minecraft

Now you are the Creeper

Block by block, like an insidious cubist curse, Minecraft is taking over the gaming world. World of Warcraft was the most recent game to suffer assimilation, in a frightening 1-1 recreation. Usually this sort of labour of love is made by the fans, but Ubisoft are cutting out the post-launch months of people on forums suggesting that someone does it. They’ve hired Far Cry 3 Minecraft modder Michael Lambert to build it for them, creating a free map and texture pack that will be out before the game it’s based on.

It makes none of sense, but it’s a fun thing to do for both communities. Minecrafters get a new world to play with, full of a huge amount of spoiler content for the main game: locations and characters will be present, as well as 50 or so Easter Eggs. And if you’re a Far Cry 3 fan who was eager to see the rather gorgeous game rendered in breaky blocks, then you’re probably more excited than I’m comfortable with. Take a couple of steps back. Further. That’s better.

Here’s some startling imagery of the two games mashed-up. I hope Ubisoft believes this is what they’re making.




It’ll be out on the Far Cry 3 site on October the 26th.
