Far Cry 6 new screenshots-3

Far Cry 6 won’t have a map editor

In a recent Reddit AMA, the developers of Far Cry 6 revealed that the game won’t come with any map editor. This is a bit disappointing as most Far Cry games had a map editor. Naturally, the absence of a map editor will have a negative effect on the game’s modding community.

As the developers said when asked about the game’s map editor.

“No, Arcade will not come back. Removing this mode from our plan was a difficult decision, but allowed us to focus our efforts on the main campaign, transporting players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution.”

Now while the developers did not comment on Ray Tracing and DLSS, we do know that the game will support ray-traced shadows. Do note, though, that this is an AMD-sponsored game. As such, don’t expect support for DLSS.

In other news, the developers said that takedowns are back and fully ready for stealth players with plenty of new animations. Additionally, the full game is playable in Coop with the tether system that you experienced in FC5 and New Dawn.

Lastly, the devs claimed that players will have a lot of choice when it comes to how they want to experience the overall story.

“You will be able to approach the story however you like, no matter where you are on the map, which will give you freedom to explore Yara at your own pace. But we also ensured new ways that players will experience the larger narrative – the struggle between Dani and Libertad against Anton. This includes having moments with Anton and Diego where Dani isn’t actually there – so you can see Anton and Diego’s perspective of the revolution as if you were in the room right next to them.”
