Even though most of the Far Cry games wanted to focus on various regions of the world in the modern era, Far Cry Primal takes a different approach and it takes us back in time during the Mesolithic period. It’s an exciting game with a really good premise, and that is to deliver us the ultimate, action packed hunting experience in a world where people had to use their minds more than the tools at their disposal.

We follow the role of a hunter which is named Takkar and he needs to help his tribe survive. The interesting thing about this game is that it allows you to see his rise to power and at the same time you have the ability to truly become a hunter, all whole trying to defeat the tribes that want to obtain complete control over the region.

You get the similar Far Cry gameplay in Primal, but there are no guns here, instead you have to rely on items such as spears, bows, clubs and axes. This is an interesting change of pace that does place a lot more emphasis on skill unlike the previous games in the series but the gameplay is very good regardless of that.

Crafting makes a great comeback and you have the ability to use a wide range of resources in order to create the items you want. You can also tame wildlife in Far Cry Primal, something that does deliver plenty of new possibilities because you can use these animals during combat by issuing commands to them. These include an owl, a sabretooth as well as many other similar animals.

Using animals in combat is something new and really exciting for the game, but so is the skills menu that allows you to gather up new attributes in the game world. Taking on mammoths will be one of the main challenges of this game, but so will be fighting other tribes. The game does a great job in offering you lots of challenges and it allows you to seamlessly grow your character in a simple, refined and truly exciting manner that you will enjoy.

The game development process for Far Cry Primal started soon after FC4 was complete and Ubisoft actually surveyed people in the beginning of 2015 in order to see what type of theme they would like for the next FC game.

One of the big things about Far Cry Primal is that it will have a game world as huge as the predecessors, but at the same time it will also feature a large collector edition filled with stuff such as a map of the game world, a collector book, steel book and extra missions. However, Far Cry Primal will not include multiplayer mode because the developers considered it as being a distraction from the core gameplay and they would like to focus on that for the time being. It might come in the future though.
