This is short notice, I know, but it has just been brought to my attention (thanks Kimi @ Ubi) that iGames is hosting a sweet contest for all of you Far Cry 2 mappers out there! The prizes are enough to make me wish I was competent enough at map making to whip something up! This contest is only open to people located in the U.S. and Canada.
    The judging will be based on four different areas:
  • Map playability
  • Map graphics / visual appearance
  • Map complexity / level of customization and detail compared to the original map
  • The community rating received by an Entry (the higher the better) during the Viewing Period.
To enter the contest, create a Far Cry 2 map (Xbox 360 or PC), paying special attention to playability, graphics, visual appearance, map complexity and customization, and detail compared to the original map. Make sure to name your map in this format: iGAMES EntrantName. For answers to your burning questions, drop an email to or call 650-917-9888 x223. Some links to check out:
