    Photos of FarCry 5 Map editor!

    Hi Guys,

    I saw these pictures of the map editor in Far Cry 5 in an IGN video. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqFNKG-z1AA) Not sure if we will get the same editor with the same functionality of course, but at least we have some pictures of it.

    Interesting things in there, like Prophet? Joe Browser? Second database?

    Is this the IGE or their actual engine? It does seem like their IGE, but it has Falls End or whatever it was called loaded in, but there IS a map boundary on it.

    Was Falls End a fake town, made in the IGE, just to show off for E3? and not even part of the game? Are they THAT far behind on making the game? Did they just do that in order to keep players only in that area of the map (just a cheap way to give players a demo of the game, without actually going into the game)?

    This makes me have more questions than answers.

    I think it is their IGE, but I think they said we would get more options/tools in the map editor, so maybe it will look more like this IGE. Falls End might be in the actual game, or maybe it was a especially built for E3 or maybe it is their test city environment. I think it does not matter so much what it is. I am sure they are not behind on their schedule of making the game. As otherwise they would not have mentioned the actual release date.

    It's actually not the map editor of Far Cry 5, but a highly-modified version of the Dunia 2 game engine

    We will talk about the map editor features and look + vision more extensively in the future.
    But I can already tell you these are not screenshots of the editor. The map editor is a tool dedicated to creating custom maps and has different options & menus than the game engine.

    Hope it answers your questions!

    Would be very nice to get the same options & menus in the map editor, or maybe you can let us have the Dunia 2 game engine. We will promise not to break it and not build Far Cry 6 before you do.

    Thank you for clarifying! Its funny, cause it totally looks like a feasible IGE for the PC, nothing I saw in the menus seems crazy, just seems like IGE stuff, organized differently. Shows you how similar the IGE tools are to the Devs tools!

    Man, I tried hard to get information out of the Devs there at the Ubi booth at E3, and they caged up tight lol. Demo was fun!

    Hello, so this means, Far Cry 5 is using modified Dunia Engine 2, right?

    Mildly disappointed the IGE wasn't mentioned at E3. Kinda afraid we're gonna get the same last second treatment. Next up they'll show off co-op, then with a month to go they'll show off 5v5 weird MP with no TDM or CTF, then with a week to go we'll get a map editor trailer and absolutely no news of the lobby system. I want to be hopeful but history has repeated itself with this franchise.
