You’ve probably already heard news about FC: Primal yesterday, but just in case you haven’t: The Guys behind Uplay announced Primal, a new spin-off from the main series, set in the Stone-Age, around 10.000 BC. This means no Dinos, but a good amount of woolly mammoths and saber-toothed cats. But that’s not where the differences to Blood Dragon end.
Ubisoft now confirmed that this is actually a fully priced, aka. $60/70 title, featuring all the stuff we know from Far Cry 4, minus co-op, but with a pre-historic spin. It also got revealed that the game is set in the fictitious Oros region, somewhere in North America, and you are the last survivor of your hunting party. Animals seem to play a bigger role this time around, both in actual size and gameplay-wise, but human enemies will return as well.
Ubisoft Montreal, who already made all the previous non-Crytek Far Crys, is again at the helm, but with help from their Kiev, Shanghai and Toronto based studios. Four Studios for one game? Yeah, sounds about right.
Release will be February 23rd, 2016.
Honestly, I couldn’t care less. It’s Ubi-Cry, but with a different skin, no charismatic antagonist and (hopefully) no fully automatic weapons . Still, some people are excited, Cody *cough*, so have your fun with it. I’ll instead wait for Horizon: Zero Dawn.
