After a daylong tease, Ubisoft has announced that the 'Far Cry' series is going to the Stone Age with 'Far Cry Primal.'
That's right. 10,000 B.C. is the setting, and the game is described as offering a full-fledged single-player experience. Ubisoft Montreal is leading the development, with Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai Studio, and Ubisoft Kiev Studio in support.
'Far Cry Primal' is being developed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is set to release on February 23, 2016.
The award-winning franchise that stormed the tropics and climbed the Himalayas now brings its innovative open world sandbox gameplay to a time when humans were not at the top of the food chain but were fighting to climb it, bringing together massive beasts, breathtaking environments and unpredictable savage encounters.
Gamers play as TAKKAR, a seasoned hunter and the last surviving member of his hunting group. Arriving in the majestic and savage land of Oros, players will pursue one single goal; survive in a world where humans are the prey. They will meet a cast of memorable characters who will help them push back and tame the dangers of the wild. Players will journey as the first human to tame the wilderness and rise above extinction. Along the way, they will have to hunt for food, master fire, fend off fierce predators, craft weapons and tools partly from the bones of slain beasts and face off against other tribes to conquer Oros.
