Course Technology PTR and Ubisoft Montreal today announced a unique partnership that will unleash the thorough “From Gamer to Game Designer” book to retail and hopes to turn imaginative gamers on to a career in game design.

Officially dubbed “From Gamer to Game Designer: The Official Far Cry 2 Map Editing Guide,” and written and edited by David Hutchinson, Associate Professor at Brock University, this informative guide will teach enthusiasts to make full use of the deep and rich map editor tool in Far Cry 2 on Xbox 360, PS3, and of course PC.

Zero knowledge of programming is necessary to utilize the guide and insightful help and hints from Ubisoft development team members are littered throughout the book’s 300 pages ultimately bolstering its authenticity.

Personally, I’ve always loved the idea of designing my own levels, but when I got right down to it, and tried my hand with the Source SDK for Counter Strike I realized my ambitions were more than I could handle. But hey, that’s just me.‚  If you love Far Cry 2 and desire better map-making skills, you might just want to check out this book, on sale now here for $35.99.
