Now There is a Greggs in Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 gamer has brought British high-street staple, Greggs, to Ubisoft’s open-world game.
Greggs, for people who don’t know, is a ubiquitous bakery chain here in Blighty. Having already brought a block of dismal flats to Far Cry 5, Edinburgh-based mapper Mojo Swoptops chose to make the sandwich shop using the game’s shockingly deep map editor.
It’s a very good facsimile, too. Yes, the font’s somewhat off and the shelves are stocked with upside-down burgers and fruit baskets, but from a distance, the vibes are spotless—the warm glow of a £3 coffee and sausage roll decorating an otherwise grim Scottish street. It’s very cool to watch him slowly stock the shelves, panel the floors, and place a dainty seagull by the trash outside.
Check out the creation video below:
Mojo does have a few more interesting builds over on his YouTube channel. But it’s these ordinary ones I find myself loving the most. Capturing the piss-stained scene of the Cowgate on a Friday night, the apocalyptic chaos of a Tesco parking lot. At the direction of Rock Paper Shotgun’s Alice O’Connor, Mojo even returned to recreate Leith’s monolithic Banana Flats.
I’m confident Gregg won’t be striking Mojo with a copyright takedown anytime soon.
