Gamer Recreates the McCallister House from Home Alone in Far Cry 5
It's the holiday season and you know what that means? Yes, Home Alone. There's no getting away from it, even over on Reddit
You always know when it’s coming up to the holiday season due to the overload of Christmas movies showing up on the TV, but the most wonderful time of the year could never be complete without Home Alone coming on, at least once. It seems that the gaming world has also gotten that memo with Macaulay Culkin showing up more than once this week already as we see him as a special guest on Angry Video Game Nerd web series.
Keeping with the theme of Macaulay Culkin, over on Reddit one gamer decided to remake the famous McCallister homestead in the map editor for Far Cry 5 and did a pretty good job of it too. From the same positioning of the trees in the front of the house to the same double garage with added snow just like in the movie, u/duncsmaps did an excellent job at every fine detail. You can see a side by side comparison below with the recreation first and then followed by the real Home Alone house.
When told in a comment what an incredible job they had done and if the map editor was good on consoles, duncsmaps replied:
“Thanks! As you can probably tell by this post and all my previous posts, I love the Far Cry 5 map editor on PS4. I’ve barely touched the single player because I prefer to just be creative but I can say without a doubt the map editor is brilliant and hugely underrated. The possibilities are almost limitless and Ubisoft release FREE asset drops every now and then too, so the possibilities are always growing! Compared to Far Cry 2 map editor, Far Cry 5 map editor is a whole other level of creativity :)”
Although, there was one vital part they had forgotten to add to the recreation and that’s the bronze statue the driver knocks over in front of the house. Not that it really matters given the sheer amount of elements and design they put into it.
If you would like to create the McCallister home yourself or maybe get some tips on a different architecture, duncsmaps has uploaded a video that may just help you out that you can watch below.
