Well, the wait is finally over – today, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry Primal, the next installment of the iconic Far Cry franchise, where sabretooth tigers and woolly mammoths rule the world, is now available worldwide on the PS4 and Xbox One. In case you haven’t left your cave for a while, Far Cry Primal brings open-world sandbox gameplay to a time of extreme danger and adventure, where players fight to climb to the top of the food chain. If you’re a PC player, you just have to wait a bit longer – Far Cry Primal will release on March 1st for Windows PC.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal (yay Canada!), Far Cry Primal is set in the majestic land of Oros in 10,000 BC, the first frontier of man. Playing as Takkar, a seasoned hunter and the last surviving member of his hunting group, gamers will take on the savage Stone Age. In order to find, rescue, and protect the scattered members of his Wenja tribe, Takkar must craft a deadly arsenal, fend off fierce predators, and outsmart enemy tribes to become the apex predator. We are not sure what “apex” means, but it sounds pretty bad-ass!
A range of weapons are at Takkar’s disposal, including the deadly double-bow, bee-hive bombs, and fire. In addition to these, Takkar’s special ability to tame and command wild beasts empowers gamers to tame the predators they find in the open-world and use them as both tools and weapons. Animals like the owl or honey badger can be summoned at any moment to take down enemies, scout the area, or act as a distraction during battle and hunts. With these constant companions fighting at the player’s side, the Wenja can flourish despite the fierce nature of Oros and its inhabitants.
