    Lets just hope the Editor isn't USELESS like in Far Cry 3. Seriously, the lobby system was TERRIBLE. It ruined the map editor and being able to share your creations.

    Brilliant news about the editor! So chuffed....
    Though i'll be waiting for sure, and seeing what the community thinks of the MP/Editor before I purchase!

    I need a editor fix. Ive been back to FC2, where I started 2-3 maps but their unfinished because I missed some of the features that FC3 had....and editing on FC3 was/is a complete waste of time, which is a shame because the editor itself was amazing!

    I will keep checking this thread for more news...thanks chaps

    All the info at the moment points to a single player/mission/death trap editor, and no sign of a multiplayer map editor. ubi seems to be releasing quite a bit of info on a single player style map editor, and this has me concerned. maybe ubi looked at all those forum complaints about fc3 not having AI in maps and no vehicles, and this pushed them away from the multiplayer map editor side of things, and more towards creating single player missions with vehicles and AI. i hope this is not the case.

    As I'm sure it has many of us concerned, Soldier!
    This seems like a play of words on Ubi's part so far...we should be wary, and keep a close eye on the future info.

    I would expect to see:
    Up to 16 person Multi-player...custom lobbies...improved Multiplayer Map Editor...etc in the wording from Ubi to even remotely catch my attention, and interest!

    Mappers have been asking for this for AGES. Think Little Big Planet, but more awesome. Making an impenetrable fortress that you and your buddies can sneak into at night, and fulfill some kind of mission would be AMAZING. I also like that they are looking for easy ways to expose the best maps. BUT, it wont make a darn bit of difference if the SHARING aspect wounds that experience. The multiplayer matchmaking needs to go away, and make way for lobbies where people can share their creations for maximum exposure.

    In Far Cry 2, I used to just create dedicated servers with 15 various maps, some of which were my own creations, and just walk away from my 360 while the server stayed full all day long. So not only was I able to get my OWN maps out there, but I was sharing other peoples own creations as well. And it was a wonderful experience!

    I spent a full week making one map for Far Cry 3. It got 24 downloads!!!!!

    My maps in Far Cry 2 got THOUSANDS.

    I dont see any reason for them to not include it for Multiplayer as well. I just think that they'll finally include a co-op aspect with it. Think about it. The FC4 campaign now includes co-op, which is a first (If you don't count FC3's separate co-op campaign)

    lots of new info...but its still all very vague and can be explained in different ways...first wanna see to believe
    guess FC3's MP & EDITOR did a lot of damage among the community

    The editor can be an ultimate tool that expands the life time and fun of the MP side of the game...
    but without being able to share and play your maps with the public at large, its a lost cause

    So really hope there is a custom lobby like in FC2 or something simular (think its a must have in the game)
    also the save option of a map after playing a custom MP game is very useful


    and please dont dumb down the editor...and give us all the items in the game...not half like in FC3...the more items the better the maps

    And with consoles having upwards of 8GB of memory now, think of the possibilities!

    Apple's App store? I certainly hope that we do not pay to download user made maps.

    Far Cry 2 Had the best map sharing/playing system in the franchise IMO, I loved looking at how many downloads my map has, I know CHAMP says there should be no stats on maps, but I disagree, map statistics are what break up a search for maps, it makes it much easier to find what you are looking for, another good idea is being able to tag your map (just a bunch of words related to the map that can be searched for to find the map)

    Far Cry 3 map system went off plays instead of downloads and IMHO I hated it! I like to know EXACTLY how many people have downloaded my maps, it just makes it much better for me.

    ------- MAP EDITOR: Featuring an improved, easy-to-navigate interface and a ton of versatile tools, the Far Cry 4 map editor lets you create your ideal map and publish it to the community. The power is in your hands to design a unique paradise, a bit of outsider art, or an unforgiving death trap. ------- - This is on the official Ubisoft website, seems they know different types of maps we make now, which could mean they understand our needs for Race maps, Escape maps and even singleplayer maps now

    I usually pass my consoles on to my Nieces when I upgrade to a newer one.
    KrAzY my PSN name is Sizzling_Sar although I have rarely played online games in just over 12 months, I mostly play single player stuff these days and I have not had a headset in over a year.

    I only made one FC3 map on PS3 called Aggressors - I will need a load of online friends for when FC4 comes out because if the multiplayer rocks I plan on been active online for several years with that game for sure.

    (my PSN I.D. was never supposed to be sizzling_star it is a joke between me my nieces and my wife, they called me sar for some bizzarre reason - before that I had Anorexic_Buddha as a name)
    Whats up brother,long time no hear,i got to play far cry 4 at e3 event was invited by phil spencer thru a raffle i won,proof is on my xbox upload studio bro,haha couldnt believe it,but i did get some interesting words from ubisoft there and found out the things the multiplayer really want.They say the most requested item players wanted was to have open world co op,haha what a joke.....the most requested was CUSTOM LOBBIES MAP EDITOR,maybe one day they shall see the light and see why far cry original still lasts to this day because of that,we shall see nov 18th.Graphics look amazing guys and flying vehichles finally just hope they throw them in the map editor as well.
