Yesterday Ubisoft began teasing a new game, which rumours and leaks suggested was a new Far Cry game set in the ice age. Turns out it is a new Far Cry game, but it’s actually set in the Stone Age. In 10,000 BC to be exact.
Also, there’s a lot of brown.
Far Cry Primal ditches vehicles and guns, and casts you as a Stone Age hunter called Takkar. You’ll need to craft weapons, explore a massive open world, and try to help your tribe regain control of a region known as Oros. There will be rival tribes, so expect lots of pointy sticks and bows and arrows being flung around at NPC humans. Just try not to get devoured by the wildlife when you’re not taking over regions.
There’s a reveal trailer below. The game will be out in February 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC release will follow in March. Ubisoft is billing this as the next chapter in the Far Cry series, so it’s not a spin-off of Far Cry 4 like Blood Dragon was for Far Cry 3. Far Cry Primal will be a standalone, full retail physical release.
