Highlights Far Cry 5 players build a customized version of the Eiffel Tower in the game’s map editor, impressing other players with its realism. Many players were unaware of the map editor feature in Far Cry 5, but they were amazed at what Mojoswoptops2020 was able to create with it. Ubisoft has released a next-gen update for Far Cry 5 to celebrate its fifth anniversary, allowing players to experience the game with greater visual quality on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
A creative Far Cry 5 player used the game’s map creator to build a custom version of the Eiffel Tower. This creation brings a new look to Hope County, the fictional region of Montana where the events of Far Cry 5 take place.
In Far Cry 5, the main character is a junior deputy sheriff trying to shut down a doomsday cult called the Project at Eden’s Gate. This cult is led by the charismatic Joseph Seed and his family, with one of his brothers controlling each region of Hope County. Although the player’s objective is to end this doomsday cult and bring peace back to Hope County, the Seed family will not go down without a fight and can count on their heavily armed cult members to do everything they can to stop the Sheriff from capturing their leader. With fast-paced action, a large American-inspired open world, a branching story filled with deadly threats and multiplayer modes, Far Cry 5 was a commercial success and became the fastest selling game in the Far Cry franchise.
An inspired Far Cry 5 player known as Mojoswoptops2020 on Reddit shared an amazing piece of art featuring the Eiffel Tower in Far Cry 5. To create this iconic Parisian landmark, they used 62 bridge assets in the Far Cry 5 map editor, assembling them to look like the Eiffel Tower. In addition to a photo of this creation with trees and a beautiful sunset, Mojoswoptops2020 shared a video showing the creation process and how they transformed an empty lot into the Eiffel Tower, using only the steel bridge assets from Far Cry 5.
In the comments to this Reddit post, players were blown away by the realism of this Eiffel Tower. Most players didn’t even know that Far Cry 5 featured a map editor for them to create new elements. Far Cry 5’s map editor is available in Arcade mode, offering players over 9,000 different objects to build any type of map and create their own sandbox world. Players familiar with Far Cry 5’s map editor were still stunned to see what Mojoswoptops2020 was able to build with it, asking the creator to add more iconic landmarks to Far Cry 5.
Players who haven’t experienced Far Cry 5 yet or those who would like to rediscover the game soon will be able to do so with greater visual quality than before on next-gen consoles. To celebrate the game’s fifth anniversary, Ubisoft released a next-gen update for Far Cry 5 to make it run at 4K, 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Far Cry 5 is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
