    Just yesterday, Ubisoft posted a live video to YouTube stating that there would be some sort of announcement "coming soon." The video showed cave drawings along with a crackling fire, some sort of animal growling, and people talking in the background. Although, the speech sounded distant and faint, so what exactly was being said could not be heard. Over the coming five to six hours, the video had slowly been panning out, revealing more drawings that seemed to depict people from an ancient time weilding bows and arrows and other things of the sort.

    A few hours after this video was uploaded to the internet, Ubisoft Switzerland released a fifteen second clip onto their Twitter page which only revealed mammoths. Creating many more questions than it answered. But, there seemed to have been a leak of information on what the game may be, before Ubisoft had officially announced it on their own. IGN Turkey uploaded the picture shown below, along with the caption "Far Cry: Primal" to their Twitter page shortly after the mammoth clip was made public.

    UPDATE - After the possible leak by IGN Turkey, Ubisoft made everyone wait approximately twenty-four hours for an actual reveal of what this game could be. Just about an hour ago, they have officially announced that it is in fact Far Cry: Primal. The game will take place in the Stone Age, going much farther back from the time period Far Cry 4 had taken place in.

    In Primal we will encounter huge mammoths, and sabre-toothed tigers that rule the land which has just gone through an ice age. With the glaciers melting away, they have revealed a lush open-world to explore and conquer. Playing as Trakkar, the last member of your tribe, your goals will be to set out across the land of Oros as you hunt and discover new and important resources. Utilizing fire along with weapons and tools crafted from the bones of animals you have hunted, you will further develop your skills while building up your tribe to fend off the savage animals throughout the land.

    However, vicious beasts are not the only threats you will be faced with. There are enemy tribes across Oros, who are just waiting to kill you on sight. Master the skills you have acquired to stealthily investigate their outposts. But, keep in mind that any scent of blood will attract hungry predators who will not hesitate to attack for the food you have given them easy access to.



    Along with the announcement, Ubisoft is also offering a chance for two people to be the very first to play Far Cry: Primal. You can enter this contest on their website for a chance to win two round-trip tickets to San Francisco in December, to get a hands-on experience of Primal. You can also pre-order your copy now, which will come with The Legend of the Mammoth Mission Pack. Far Cry: Primal is set to be released on February 23rd, 2016 across multiple platforms, including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

    I love the idea but I worry it will all be "heavy" in tone. I absolutely Loved the humor that Pagin Min and Rabi Ray Rana added to the game. Like how many amazing action movies have some humor threaded in to break up the tension.

    Interesting turn I am excited to see how this plays out it looks like it has potential now hopefully they don't just copy and paste Far Cry 4 with a Stoneage texture with this game. Also wondering how if any multiplayer will be in this game both Co-Op and Versus.
    1. RaoulDuke
      There hasn't been any mention of multiplayer or co-op features, and this surely seems like a game more focused upon a singleplayer campaign. However, I wouldn't completely rule it out.
    2. Mister Whiskers
      Personally think Pvp would be kinda tricky to do with this game but a co-op even if just 2 players would be pretty fun.

    The Stoneage seems like an excellent setting for a game. I already wondered why there basialy are only indie games which use that idea. If they don't rush this title, it will have loads of potential. I just hope they don't waste it.

    The game looks sick! Very unique and I can't wait to try it. The graphics look amazing as well. The only thing I reaallllllly hope is not in the game is the dialogue I saw in the trailer! I'd realllyyy rather not hear "chickipookiboo fadbisiki wa" :roflmao: every time someone talks for the entire game! lol, uhhhh English please :tongue:. It'll be OK to have it here and there; I know it's way back in the day but still, I can see it getting annoying and having to read the subtitles for the whole game IMO.

      Do you know if they go away from guns?
      because if so i think thats a big fail.

      I'm pretty positive there won't be any guns in this version of Far Cry Unknow_wow123. There will most likely just be a wide array of primitive weapons that you can craft on your own.

      I agree man! Definitely looks like it has great potential. I just hope Ubisoft doesn't find a way to mess it up.

      They made a good job on Rainbow Six Siege Also.

    Hmm, I'm interested in learning more about this. I didn't really get into the last 2 FC games, but this one could be interesting.
  9. LookBroZombies_XBL
    Hmm this might be interesting since I like the Far Cry games. It would be very cool to see what weapons would be used in this time period. I want more info!

      You have sticks, rocks and rocks tied to sticks.

    Never liked far cry games, but if this is set way back when to when dinosaurs existed, I may pick it up!
