Battlefield, Counter-Strike, And Call of Duty Maps Recreated In Far Cry 3

When we heard about Far Cry 3 Map editor, we expected many great things to come of it, but not something like this.

Youtuber, ShadowZack has taken some of our favorite maps from other multiplayer shooters like Battlefield 3, Call of Duty, and Counter-Strike, and has recreated them by using the Map editor in Far Cry 3.

Here’s what happeend:

Battlefield

Noshahr Canals

Wake Island

Counter Strike:

Dust

Aztec

Call of Duty

Here’s one of Nuke Town, though it’s still a work in progress and isn’t as well done yet like the others.

Pretty impressive, don’t you think? These maps are currently only available on the PC.

Thanks Droc_ny for the tip.

    The Wake Island map is REALLY impressive!

  • Sensou-Ookami

    Wow, great Nuke Town.

  • ROCKMONEY

    Totally forgot Farcry 3 had a map editor.

  • Helloz!

    If these maps are also available fro console than i’m totally convinced to get Far Cry 3

    and DICE said “modding is a declining trend”, greedy idiots.

  • Jason

    NICE! I have not even touched the Map Editor in the Game yet, too busy with the songle player lol FUN GAME!

  • Jamic

    Another reason to allow vehicles

    though I heard there already is a mod for FC3 which allows them and weapon pickups.

    praise the map editor!

  • HighBob

    So… We only need map browsers, so people can play a specified map not the one from rotation…

  • dpg70

    Wake Island is incredibly well done! Awesome work.

    finally went and picked this up & my firt reaction was CoD what.

  • Mike

    Yup, modding is definitely in decline. Stupid DICE/EA.

    • http://www.facebook.com/logan.merriman Logan Merriman

      this isnt modding.

      • Retro

        Still more than you get from DICE or IW/Treyarch.

      Activision is stupid to. They never allow modding. Praise bethesda kings of skyrim. They even made a modding program to use.

    i love the wake island one.

  • Derek Haneman

    This is why I love the PC environment. Free and endless possibilities……, when a developer/publisher put aside greed and try to truly make a product their customers will love.

    As much as I love BF3 this just goes to show that most of the excuses for not including a map editor were probably outright lies. But its to be expected when money is on the table.

  • Rave

    Nuketown? More like NukeVillage. :p Great job though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/BuckyBucked Rob Shepherd

    You know if CoD had a map editor. People would get the blue prints of each map. Re-create them in the editor. Activision would lose A LOT of money.

      It has map editor, not official, but it’s possible to make maps with similar tools that Activision uses. It’s engine based on Quake and like Source engine it uses same map editor (Wodlcraft, Hammer). It’s outdated crap and compiling a map can last 20 hours. Using those tools is a pain in the ass (no preview, no real-time lighting) because this technology is so terribly outdated. Even Valve admits it in interviews. Instead of making a map in few days you need months. That was the main reason why Black Mesa mod was being made for 8 years.

    Featured these the other day – interview with ShadowZack where he talks how long it takes him for some of these http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKEJoUpYK1Q

    I expected it since in Far Cry 2 there were maps from Battlefield too as well as Call of Duty 4 maps and some Star Wars themed ones too. Those were the most played and downloaded. Don’t remember any Counter-Strike maps but I’m sure there were some too. How could there not be any?! It was the most played Multiplayer game years ago before World of Warcraft. Still pretty impressive. Time consuming to make for sure.

    I hope more games have this feature when the next Xbox and Playstation come out. Sure the developers won’t make as much money off of map packs, but it’ll at least give players a wider variety of locations to play in online.

    ” excuses for not including a map editor were probably outright lies ”

    I must bring this up from the bottom

    DICE didnt want to include map editor for 2 reasons (or 3)
    1: they sell expansion which mostly shape up from maps in the late lifecycle of BF3, user created maps mean less money.
    2: Fc3 has “sandbox editor” type map creation, Im willing to bet DICE/BF3 uses more old fashioned map compilation system which have some great differences.
    +3: map compilation is more complex and time consuming than sandbox approach, its also impossible for consoles since you have to transfer map files over the internet (would require Sony/MS certification process) while sandbox doesnt transfer files at all, it “sync’s” the map geometrics and coordinations, I believe FC3′s editor also auto optimizes maps.
    +4?: BF3′s console and PC versions were already quite different, maybe DICE felt that mapping kit would have been too much of a difference.

    This is Awesome!

    I was trying to recreate Desert Glory, Socom 2 map. But its is a lot harder to line objects on with the PS3 controller’s analog sticks. Not to take away from ShadowZacks’s sweet map editing skills, but I can image its easier to create maps on PC.

    Keep them coming! :)
