Ubisoft have confirmed a new Far Cry game. Titled Far Cry Primal, the game will launch worldwide on February 23, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One with the Windows PC launch slated for March 2016. Players will take on the role of TAKKAR, a hunter as the game takes place in the savage lands of Oros. Players will be able to craft weapons and tools from animals and use them to conquer the tribes of Oros.
“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 realized how much of a damn good idea it actually was,” said Dan Hay, executive producer, Ubisoft.
“The Stone Age is the perfect setting for a Far Cry game,” said Jean-Christophe Guyot, creative director, Ubisoft. “Far Cry 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.”
It must be noted that this is not Far Cry 5 but rather a standalone title just like Blood Dragon.
