Ubisoft Showcases Far Cry 5 Map Editor to Expert Community Members

The Map Editor for upcoming Montana-based Far Cry 5 has been shown off by Ubisoft to some expert members of their community and fanbase who gave their first impressions after being flown out this December for an exclusive hands on experience. Some high quality (albeit brief) footage has also been released of this event in which Community Developer Laureline thanks the active Far Cry community and the actual Far Cry 5 Map Editor can be seen in action as well.

Kemet1976 states that its the most advanced editor he’s seen yet, and that the experience has blown him away. Setho-1 is also a well known map creator in the Far Cry community and states that the amount of customization that can be done now with maps is massively improved. Restylex says “there’s no limitation for me at this moment when I look at the Far Cry 5 Map Editor”. And akilyoung who has been a community figure since 2012 describes the application as not being stripped of anything, but instead feels like things were added in above and beyond expectations.

In addition to getting the first look at this Map Editor for Far Cry 5, it appears that Ubisoft’s Far Cry team has even been open to ideas from these esteemed, most active members of their map making community. That’s always a good thing, but sometimes it’s just words. In this case, we have HorTyS (Far Cry Community Member since 2003) his word that the team is listening to feedback actively and attentively on how to make the program as powerful as possible. And since he himself is from Montana, there was a lot of potential feedback to be given. One of the map ideas HorTyS is considering includes a re-creation of his home town in Montana, a testament to how powerful this Editor truly is.

Fortnite Dev Update 03/09 – Llamas Coming to Battle Royale, Smoke Grenade Removal

If you’re a fan of the most popular Battle Royale game out right now, Fortnite, then you’ll probably already know that there’s currently a new mode going on for a limited time. These LTM’s (Limited Time Modes) that Epic Games cycles in and out are meant to provide a good bit of variety but without overstaying their welcome and without dividing up the playerbase.

Although much more exciting LTM’s are rumored to be coming (more info here), some LTM’s such as “The Floor Is Lava” and “Take To The Skies” could be delayed due to the fact that Fortnite’s jetpack hasn’t been added in yet. It’s possible that these items, which are expected to be somewhat rare drops and not standard equipment, will be heavily involved in the functionality of these LTM’s.

Today, Systems Designer at Epic Games Eric Williamson gave a Dev Update speaking about the Jetpack Delay as well as some other information. Again, it is re-iterated that the Jetpack is not delayed, but just didn’t feel exactly as well designed as the dev team wanted it to. It’s still coming.

20 vs 20 vs 20 vs 20 vs 20 or “Teams of 20” as Epic calls it, has some info revealed about it. The circle and storm sizes are faster in this mode. Team location can be pinged on the map. There’s increased supply drops, treasures chests, and ammo cans in this mode too.

Unexpectedly, there’s also a new way to get loot coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale in the Llamas system. Llamas are a lootbox reward previously only available to be earned (or purchased) in the single player portion of Fortnite called Save The World. Soon players will be able to find Llamas on the island in Battle Royale mode when next week’s 3.3 Update comes out (exact version number will be different on PS4).

These will be interacted with like treasure chests in Battle Royale mode, though it’s unclear exactly how that will look and if they’ll still carry any sort of lootbox style to them. It also seems unlikely that Epic would allow anyone to buy Llamas for Battle Royale mode, since the game has been very well balanced until now. If that happens it would surely be a disaster to the game, so let’s hope not.

Smoke Grenades aren’t being used as much as Epic Games wanted them to be, so they feel like something’s probably wrong with them. They will be removing these from the game and ‘putting them into the vault’ to possibly be remixed and brought back some day.

Just a reminder: Save The World is actually an awesome co-op / single player experience involving zombie-style storm infected enemies, base-building, and a great way to stay on Fortnite but refresh the variety of gameplay. The big problem with switching between the two has been that the controls were very different though. Epic Games announced recently that they are working to fix that and make the controls for Save The World much more similar to those of Fornite Battle Royale.

Battlefield 1 Turning Tides Expansion Review

This past week the first two maps of the Battlefield 1 expansion “Turing Tides” has now released. Also a new operation, new weapons, and new assignments have been added as well. But let’s get into the meat of this latest expansion in the latest Battlefield title.

“Turning Tides” as of right now only has its first two maps out, as the other two are coming in early January when it releases outside of the premium pass. But the first map we have is “Achi Baba” which is a trench warfare heavy map. The gameplay here is probably what I would consider the most accurate to the World War I setting. As you find yourself constantly running through trenches, grenades flying around and landing in front of you. It’s very infantry focused, and one of the best maps in the game in my opinion. The other map “Cape Helles” is more fitting with the theme of the DLC. Featuring plenty of sea gameplay, with also a big mix of air and infantry based defense gameplay. This map I find a bit weaker, as the attackers really only utilize the sea gameplay, while defense is more on infantry and sky.

There are plenty of new weapons that honestly don’t add to much to the sandbox of Battlefield 1, especially compared to “In the Name of the Tsar.” I feel like the real potential of this expansion lies with the next two maps that are coming, so when they release I will update this review with those. But the infiltrator hero class has been added in this update. Which serves as a more stealth based hero character, which is very fitting for Battlefield 1 and has the potential to be one of my favorite new classes.

Hello Neighbor Review

Hello Neighbor is a very different type of game than you may have expected. Then again, being different than what you’re probably used to is also likely what brought you here in the first place. The sense of curiosity that’s been known to kill the cat, or in this case the neighborhood vibe of a suspenseful Alfred Hitchcock film meets puzzle game and dash of Five Nights At Freddy’s fan conspiracy community sprinkled on top without the annoying parts. It’s like Five Nights At Freddy’s for adults, but it’s so much more.

This game seems to exist within its own realm and as such follows its own rules of logic. A lot of time is spent fighting with your own mental patience or lack thereof. Gamers who take a calm and calculated approach and like to pause and think before every action might beat the game quicker than those who have lots of energy.

Sometimes the right action seems so simple but any little mistake will have you running to get back to the point where you had an opportunity to test your theory. The result will just be a lot of failure and the enemy growing more prepared and aware of your thinking process. The controls and physics of the game sometimes cause problems which aren’t your fault as well.

Many abstract moments leave the player constantly guessing what’s going on, but that’s the genre of mystery / adventure games that have recently cropped up. There’s a huge audience for it, but if you need something like a clear narrative, gunfights, or magic spells to keep you interested – it might not be for you. Instead, Hello Neighbor is a bizarre and artistic piece of content which can drive you borderline insane with spirit like a creepypasta.
