Hours Of Darkness - Map Jam

06/13/2018 09:00 AM

Hello Far Cry Map builders,

For the next three weeks, we'll be holding a new Map Jam! Using the FC5 Map Editor, we want you to create an Outpost map using the new Hours of Darkness assets to recreate a Vietnam atmosphere.

How to Participate?

  • Publish your FC5 map between June 13th and June 28th.
  • The name of your map should start with “MJ5 - nameofmap”.
  • Only maps with the OUTPOST game mode will be accepted.
  • Third-party Mods are not allowed.
  • You are free to create on any platform. Note that PC builders and Console builders will be split into 2x separate categories.
  • Your map should highlight your vision of a Vietnam setting. Using the new Hours of Darkness assets will help you, but you can also use all the assets available in the Editor.
  • You can publish additional screenshots and videos to further promote your map.
  • If you wish to pro-actively send us links to your images or videos, use Twitter (hashtag #FCMapJam) or email us (farcrycommunity@ubisoft.com).


  • Only ONE map creation can be submitted per person. This includes all platforms (so choose wisely).
  • Only ONE map creator per map will be taken into consideration. If you choose to collaborate on creating a map, understand that only the player that submits the map will be acknowledge as the creator.
  • HAVE FUN! – We cannot stress this one enough. This is what Map Jams are about.

How will winners be selected?

We will hold separate selection processes for both PC and Console maps. A selection of Far Cry Arcade Level Designers and Developers will play the maps submitted for the Map Jam and rate them. The winners will be chosen among the maps with the highest ratings per category.

If your map is not selected, don’t worry, there will be more Map Jams for you to participate in!

For each of the following categories, one winner will be selected for PC and another winner for consoles, except for the Player choice category that will have a winner per platform (PC, PS4 and Xbox 1):

Best Level Design
Best Graphics

Best Narrative
Player's Choice

Each winner will receive:
