Minecraft and Far Cry 3 are normally thought of as two completely different games and rightly so because one is a sandbox styled open world game that emphasizes on creativity and exploration whereas the other is a violent shooter where you must slay many villages, torch entire farms and wreak a lot of havoc on an island in order to save your friends. However, if you think about it you can also find quite a bit of similarities between these two games for example they both require you to slay creatures/animals to acquire materials.

The Far Cry 3 Resource Pack for Minecraft is a great mod that allows you to add the whole Far Cry 3 experience right into your vanilla Minecraft. Although this pack won’t really bring any of the high intensity gameplay action of the Far Cry franchise to your Minecraft game, it’ll certainly bring the look of it which in a lot of cases is more than enough for the players.
One thing to keep in mind about this resource pack is the fact that it isn’t really built to work solo. The developers of this pack have also designed a fantastic map as well that implements a lot of things from the Far Cry 3 game world into the game. These two things are all right when used separately but when used in conjunction with each other they take the standard Minecraft experience to a whole new level and turn it into something that’ll attract even those players who don’t really like Minecraft that much.
Onto the specifics of it, the Far Cry 3 Resource Pack adds a lot of different kinds of blocks with desert, water and rocky color schemes. It also adds a bunch of unique textures that you can utilize to put together something really good looking. However, one of the best things about this pack is the fact that it straight up improves the textures that it doesn’t alter. There are various textures that this resource pack doesn’t directly change because they fit in with the Far Cry theme as well and in the case of these textures, the pack just adds direct improvements to them to make for a more visually pleasing experience.
Overall, if you’re looking for a resource pack that can remind you of the wild island of Far Cry 3, this one can certainly deliver.
