London, uk – October 17, 2012 – Today, Ubisoft announced the creation of a map and texture pack for Minecraft inspired by the Far Cry 3 universe, which is to be released for free on PC on the 26 th of 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.

Far Cry 3 is scheduled to release for the Microsoft’s Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows ® PC on November 30, 2012 in the UK.

About Far Cry3:

Far beyond the limits of civilization lies an island, a lawless place ruled by violence and human suffering, where your only escape is through drugs or the muzzle of a gun. This is where you find yourself, stranded in a place that has forgotten right from wrong, a place where you must live by the principles of violence to survive. Discover the island’s bloody secrets and take the fight to the enemy; improvise and use your environment to your advantage; and outwit its roster of ruthless, deranged inhabitants. Beware the beauty and mystery of this island of insanity. You’ll need more than luck to escape alive.
