Ubisoft have announced that the next game in their Far Cry franchise will head back in time to the Stone Age, where giant Mammoths and Sabre Tooth Tigers rule the land and man is just starting to take a hold.
The game puts you in the shoes of Takkar, a seasoned hunter and the last surviving member of his hunting group. Arriving in the majestic and savage land of Oros, players will pursue one single goal; survive in a world where humans are the prey.
Among other things, you’ll need to learn to hunt for food, master fire, fend off fierce predators, craft weapons and tools partly from the bones of slain beasts, and face off against other tribes to conquer Oros.
“The Stone Age is the perfect setting for a Far Cry game,” said Jean-Christophe Guyot, Creative Director, Ubisoft. “FarCry usually puts you at the edge of the known world, in a beautiful, lawless and savage frontier. The Stone Age is, in a way, the very first frontier for humankind; it’s the time when humans put a stick in the ground and claimed land for their own, the time when we started climbing the food chain. That came with conflict against other humans, of course, but also against nature itself.”
Far Cry Primal is out on PS4 and Xbox One on February 23, 2016 and PC in March 2016.

Like, for example, the entire story of Far Cry 3…
