More On: Far Cry Primal

Ubisoft has a new 5-minute trailer to acclimate you to the Mesolithic era of Far Cry Primal. The trailer is effectively narrated by the ever-talented Elias Toufexis. I guess there isn't any bad blood after Ubosoft fired him from Far Cry 3 for sounding too much like Adam Jensen from Deus Ex, because you know, he is, but I digress.

I really like the emphasis on crafting, as living off the land was my favorite part of previous Far Cry games but I felt it was never taken far enough. Here it's just about all you have, when the highest technology available to you is the bow. I also like how the most terrifying enemy is the most advanced rival tribe, because they have mastered fire.

Far Cry Primal still looks just a bit too much like an extensive reskin of Far Cry 4, but I'll probably bite anyway. I've always been fascinated by early humans and there really aren't a lot of games that explore that era of prehistory.

About Far Cry Primal
Far Cry Primal brings players back to the Stone Age, a time of extreme danger and limitless adventure, when woolly mammoths and sabretooth tigers ruled the Earth, a time when humans were not at the top of the food chain but were fighting to climb it. As the last survivor of your hunting group, you will learn to craft a deadly arsenal, fend off fierce predators and outsmart enemy tribes to conquer the land of Oros and become the apex predator.
