Far Cry: Primal Won’t Have Any Multiplayer

This was decided early on in development.

Far Cry Primal

Most Far Cry games have multiplayer in some form or another- whether it be competitive, like Far Cry 3, or the excellent co-op options that Far Cry 4 provided. Far Cry Primal, however, will not have any form of a multiplayer mode at all, it turns out.

The prehistoric twist on Far Cry which launches next month was decided to omit multiplayer in any form very early on in development, according to a comment made by community manager Jason Paradise on the Steam forums.

“Bringing the Stone Age to life and providing players with a strong gameplay experience based off of the Far Cry legacy meant we had to reinvent our core gameplay loop,” wrote Paradise. “This was definitely not a small undertaking. Our focus was on delivering this fantasy which required clear priorities for the team.

“Therefore, in the early stages of the project, we made the difficult choice of focusing our efforts on the single-player experience.”

I mean, that’s fair- as long as the core single player game has actually not suffered, I’m fine with Ubisoft removing multiplayer from this game. In fact, I’m not even sure how it would work within the context of this game’s setting, to be perfectly honest.

Far Cry Primal launches next month on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
