View Full Version : Race Gamemode In Far Cry 5?

So while watching the latest stream... around 44min they had a race with checkpoints and everything. Can we PLEASE have this in the map editor (especially with multiplayer). I come from making racetracks in Halo and would LOVE to do this in Far Cry with a checkpoint system :D

A race mode is my prediction for fc5 i made a few hours ago in my post below this one. i think fc5 may have a race mode.

Race mod for the editor would be a great addition! :)

And with a highscore (best lap time or whatever) for every single map!

{paranoid-mode}What if a highscore system of map completion times is the only thing that warrants the "play with or against your friends" in the FC5 editor? There'd be no multiplayer, just static highscore lists to beat! :P
Would be fun though, would force people to really master maps.

I really would like a race mode in the maps. The game seems to have a huge variety of vehicles, so it'd make sense!

But then again I'd like most SP content (from FC4) to be possible in custom maps. Besides racing, also 'drug runs', assassination quests, bomb defusal, hostage rescue, etc and having gameplay gadgets like the wingsuit/grapplehook as pickups in the game.

A race mode would be interesting to see, actually it would fit quite well with the wide arrange of maps that would come out of the fc5 IGE. During the pred/fc2 days there was a lot of really cool race maps that the community pumped out. It quickly became a game mode in its own right but just make sure to include the word "race' in the title and just set up the custom track. I guess the same can be said about those infamous escape maps as well :). With the addition of an actual mode to support this style of gameplay, like the waypoints/ checkpoints or even "track" IGE items, I can guarantee that the old race maps would come back with a fiery vengeance. I would actually be pretty surprised if something like this wasn't included with the multiplayer/ IGE. With the hints towards the race missions for the single player I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to transfer those assets into the IGE. Damn, this vary well might be something we see :)

Thing is though for racing. Even if its 12 players. Will there be a trial run to get the early line us in order? Will we have options for turbo boost sitting in middle of the track for a boost? If we have all 12 same vehicles would be same speeds. Those in the back would be buried or go in reverse and ram the front of the pack when they meet up. Or have hidden shortcuts kinda like Hydro Thunder for Sega Dreamcast.

Coming from Halo... it doesn't matter what place you start in the beginning. People always make mistakes and you can overtake them or just drive the "lines" better than the other people and you can easily pass them too. Yes people would be racing with the same vehicles so yes it would be the same speed. People in the back would be just fine... in Halo's Race Gamemode... people in the back do just fine. Now going in reverse would be a problem (even is in Halo)... but there are ways you can combat this. Like adding a jump at the end of the track. It doesn't need to be big, just enough to where people can't drive backwards and go up it.

Yes, to Race Gamemode in the FC5 Editor.
