Far Cry 5's map editor will allow players to use assets from other Ubisoft titles to build custom levels.

Called "Far Cry Arcade", the souped-up editor will include assets from previous Far Cry games, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity, and Watch Dogs, which can all be used to make solo, co-op and PvP maps.

There will be more than 7000 objects and items available at launch, and 1500 more added via updates.

The Arcade will be home to a curated slice of player-generated content, alongside official maps.

It will be accessible through the game's menus, or via arcade machines found in the game's campaign.

"You'll visit these worlds as the same custom deputy you play in the campaign, and any experience points, perks, or money you earn while playing will cross over into the campaign when you're done (and no, that doesn't mean you can just create a "level" filled with cash and make yourself rich)," said Ubisoft.

Far Cry Arcade will also include some new modes. One such mode is Bounty Hunt, which tasks the player with killing a certain character before escaping the level, Hitman-style.

The game's season pass will provide access to three DLC adventures, which take place in Vietnam, on Mars, and somewhere where there are lots of zombies.
