Ubisoft have today announced a promotion for their upcoming video game release of Far Cry 3 which took me by surprise. They have announced the creation of a map and texture pack for Minecraft inspired by the Far Cry 3 universe which is set to be released for free on the PC from the 26th October 2012.
This pack allows users to explore and survive the Minecraft experience through the warped lens of Far Cry 3, with modifications to all aspects of the original game, including environments, weapons and tools. Discover key Far Cry 3 locations and characters, including Vaas, Jason and Citra, all completely redesigned in Minecraft style. The map also features over 50 Easter Eggs, hidden throughout the Islands.
With the map modded by Michael Lambert (Sacr3, creator of Newcraft City), a well known Minecraft enthusiast, and artists Axel Janssen and Yohann Delcourt responsible for the textures, the Far Cry 3 inspired pack will be released for free on PC via the Far Cry official website.
You will be able to pick up Far Cry 3 for the XBox360, Playstation 3 and PC from the 29th November 2012.
