is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is set in the Stone Age, and revolves around the story of Takkar, who starts off as an unarmed hunter and rises to become the leader of a tribe.
The game is set in 10,000 BC, a time where humans began to use stones to create tools for their daily life, where survival is a daily challenge as tribes come into conflict with one another and nature. Players take on the role of a hunter named Takkar (Elias Toufexis), who is stranded in Oros—a valley that was once covered in ice—with no weapons or resources after his hunting party is ambushed. Takkar will eventually rise to power, and lead his own tribe.
Like every Far Cry before it, Far Cry Primal takes place in a massive open world, and Takkar’s adventure will take him through a number of landscapes, ranging from swamps to redwood cedar forests, and when nightfall comes to Oros, fire may be the only thing standing between Takkar and a particularly sharp set of teeth or the jagged tip of a spear.
These kinds of moments that will generate unique and unexpected experiences – a hallmark of the Far Cry series – for players as they fight to survive alone in the Stone Age wilderness.
Far Cry Primal is an action-adventure video game. The game is set in the fictional land of Oros, an open world filled with wildlife such as mammoths, dire wolves, bears, woolly rhinoceros, and saber-toothed cats. As the game is set in pre-historic times, the traditional gunplay and vehicle gameplay featured in the series were removed, and players can only get access to melee weapons like spears, clubs, axes, and short-ranged weapons like bows. Players cannot purchase weapons, and must craft them using the materials scavenged in the world such as wood and stone. As players progress, they can craft more lethal weapons with a larger variety of resources. Players are also tasked to hunt for food and learn to create fire. Besides facing natural predators, players also get the chance to be the leader of a tribe, and drive other tribes away from the world. With this feature, players are tasked to manage and protect their fellow tribe members. The game also features a day-night cycle, which will affect gameplay. At night, some enemies become more aggressive and dangerous. Players can make use of fire as a tool for personal protection or hunting at night.
Far Cry Primal will be available on Play Station 4, Xbox One and PC, coming out 23.02.2016 (PC: March 2016).
