    Hope County Map Jam

    Hello Far Cry Map builders,

    For the next two weeks, we'll be holding a Hope County Map Jam! Using the FC4 Map Editor, we want you to create a Hope County themed map.



    How to participate?
    • Publish your FC4 map between July 26 and August 9.
    • The name of your map should start with “MJ1 - nameofmap”.
    • You are free to use any game mode and any in-game modifier. Please do not use third-party Mods.
    • You are free to create on any platform. Note that PC builders and Console builders will be split into 2x separate categories.
    • Your map should highlight your vision of the Far Cry 5 setting: in gameplay, level design, and/or visual.
    • You can publish additional screenshots & videos to further promote your map.

    For more inspiration, you can take a look at the fankit and the latest FC5 E3 content. If you wish to pro-actively send us links to your images or videos, use Twitter (hashtag #FCMapJam) or email us (farcrycommunity@ubisoft.com).

    How will winners be selected?
    We will hold separate contests from the PC builders and the Console builders. On August 10, a selection of FC5 level designers and FC5 map editor developers will look at the maps created and vote for their favorites. The maps that get the most votes will win this Map Jam (there will be others in the future). For the ‘Player-Voted favorite’ category, we will run a poll with a shortlist of the best entries. The poll will remain open from August 10 to August 13.

    Winners in each contest (PC or Console) will be picked out of the four categories:

    Best Level Design


    Best Graphic


    Best Gameplay


    Player-Voted Favorite


    Each category winner will receive a bundle of Far Cry 5 exclusive goodies.


    Good luck and happy map building!
    The Far Cry Community Team

    I have this map in progress based around a Bunker taken over by Edens Gate, to one side is farmland and the other mountains - is this ok for the Map Jam ?
    Map is at about 20% complete so far.

    Sweet!

    I uploaded a map called 'MJ1 - Farmland' on PS4, and revised another older map and uploaded it called ' MJ1 - Campground' also on PS4.

    They are both open world, attack however you want, style maps. Every time you play it, you can have different experiences.

    Farmland is set in an open farmland with a town, very similar to Falls End, but rearranged.

    Campground is set in a more higher altitude setting, surrounded but mountains. Its a homeless camp under a bridge, and surrounded by industrial buildings that are vacant due to a downturn in the economy.

    You should be able to do a search for MJ1 and find all the maps. Id wait another week or so, or till the contest ends, to do it though, give other people more time to submit, if they are.

    it's a good idea, since the competition only runs for two weeks and depending on how many apply, its going to take a bit to edit content but i guess i could do a short trailer style of each map, creator and platform. Thanks akilyoung...

    Go for it, as long as its not as big as your "I am Legend" map, you don't have that much time.
