Last night Ubisoft began to tease a new game, the unveil was slightly ruined by IGN Turkey letting the prehistoric cat out of the bag – Far Cry Primal has now been officially unveiled and rather than a Blood Dragon expansion, Primal will be the next full instalment to the series.
Releasing February 23, Primal rids the modern-day skin that the series has been renowned for and goes back in time to 10,000 BC where a savage land is roamed by woolly mammoths and sabretooth tigers.
Playing as the hunter TAKKAR and set in the land or Oros, the aim of the game is survival – and by the looks of the game’s cover – you won’t be alone.
Is it me, or does that sabretooth tiger looks like a pet rather than a potential threat! As the first man, you need to survive, hunt, master fire and (unsurprisingly) craft weapons and tools. Dan Hay, Executive Producer, Ubisoft had this to say:
The interesting thing about Far Cry is that it’s flexible, so when a team proposed to explore the idea of a Far Cry taking place during the Stone Age, we just said ‘let’s hear it!’ And the more we heard about it, the more we realised how much of a damn good idea it actually was
So, Prehistoric Far Cry – sounds good to me!
