You Can't Use Far Cry 4's Map Editor For Multiplayer Levels
Sorry, looks like the map-making fans will have to wait a bit.
Ubisoft has confirmed that the map editor in Far Cry 4 will not support competitive multiplayer levels when the anticipated sequel launches next week.
The news first appeared in the Ubisoft forums and since director Alex Hutchinson clarified on Twitter, there has been an outpouring of disappointment. Unfortunately, this feature just wasn't high enough on the priority list, as Hutchinson wrote:
"I direct the game but I don't set budgets or timelines. We always squeeze in as much as we can, but we're always prioritizing."
He did say they're going to "keep supporting the game" so multiplayer map-making support could be an option in the future. But Hutchinson makes "no promises" and adds that there are "millions of players" who only focus on the campaign. For Far Cry, that's probably true, but it's still upsetting to the more creative-minded map designers out there.
