Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 Getting A Healthy Dose Of Minecraft

Far Cry 3 is all about insanity, and losing your handle on reality. I think if my machete suddenly turned to pixels, and half the enemies I was fighting suddenly looked like Steve from Minecraft, I'd be convinced that my mind was gone.

The Far Cry 3/Minecraft images seen above and below don't come from a clever photoshopper. It's a texture pack coming to Minecraft October 26. Here are the full details:

"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."

Far Cry 3, the version with a slightly more realistic visual style, releases December 4 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

  • Why are people not talking about this amazing game more!!???
  • ...what
  • Minecraft: the virtual Lego! Quite awesome.
  • Thats silly.

  • Oh i thought this was a FC3 mod! But if this is going to Minecraft, then that's pretty damn cool. Good change from the norm.
  • I left Minecraft long ago, but just seeing that picture made me read this shenanigans.

  • So there is actually no minecraft in Far Cry, theres far cry in minecraft?
  • Minecraft...it's getting into everything now!!
  • now that's seriously awsome, this should also be done with other games to, like ac3 or halo

  • Ubisoft, you just want to piss me off now, don't you?
  • Is there any chance this will come to the Xbox 360 version?

  • Shouldn't it be "Minecraft gets a healthy dose of Far Cry"?

  • lol if notch wasn't such a nice guy he'd go after these guys with lawsuits :P

    edit: And by these guys I mean just about any AAA game this holiday, since they all seem to have a minecraft reference.
  • odd mix

  • So dumb. Tired of hearing about Minecraft and references to it.
  • Wait...what is the source of this article?

    I can't find any information about this from Mojang's website or anything, so this texture pack is likely fan-made. Those images also seem to be Photoshopped - in the machete picture, you can see some of the original hand.

    EDIT: I researched it, it seems Ubisoft made a map and texture pack for Minecraft, they will release it at the date mentioned to advertise FarCry 3.
  • .....

  • If this is an actual update created by Notch and co., Minecraft has officially become 2x cooler. I'm assuming it is, so we can only hope more texture packs like this are released for other games.

    Edit: Aw man, it's by Ubisoft meaning that more texturepacks like this for other games isn't going to be a likely possibility? Darn it...
  • I probably won't play this in MInecraft but it would be cool to see the environments that you will explore in the full game.
