Ubisoft has officially announced Far Cry: Primal for PC and current-gen consoles, and revealed the game's key features as well as its first screenshots.
Very nice Ubisoft !
positive first impression ....i hope the game to be solid
You're XiSasuke, right? Remember what happened last time? Knock it off. Anyway - if you've ever been to the LeBrea tar pits (LA) you'll have an idea of what to expect, fauna-wise... the old world had giant versions of everything. Archeologists have only ever pulled one human from the pit and the leading theory is that she was a ritual sacrifice... Fire-worshippers are so passé. I'd also advise keepiing an eye out for cannibals - they'll eat your babies... your sweet, tender, juicy babies.
Yeah, that dude was annoying as hell.
I totally called this already! It totally is. Everything he said had a Sony catchphrase at the end of it
First of all who is XiSasuke? I don't know who he is or what he is about?
He was the bane of N4G... a Sony fanboy whose retardedly obvious comments could be found on literally every article. After much outrage (people HATED him) he was banned and never heard from again... until now, maybe?
@poppins Thanks but I'm just gamer who respects games while impressed in a god chair by Kurotsuchi or am my.....?
Ubi is back on track :D I hope they're not rushing it for early 2016 release #Bugs_Free please :3
Far Cry 4 was a solid release
i won't say it is , or its not ... but what's up with the dislikes on our comments xD
Far Cry 4 was great fun.
Apparently you didn't play it on PC... That sh*t was a bugfest of epic proportions! I still get shivers whenever I think about those microstutters that occured like every 5 seconds. They did patch it down the line though (6 months after release to be exact), but you know how Ubisoft are when it comes to PC ports. Can't say the same for Blood Dragon on consoles though! That game was awesome from day one! :D
I played Far Cry 4 on PC and I don't remember having any significant bugs. Looked and played great.
FC4 ran like a dream on my PC. Must have been your problem.
@ starchild and Septic Did you play it on launch day? Everybody I knew who played the game on PC at launch complained about it. There were several threads on the Ubisoft forums and other sites commited to fixing the microstutter. Post patch it ran without any hickups, sometimes upwards of 90+fps, so it definitely wasn't a hardware problem om my end. It came with my GPU for christ's sake! Wouldn't you expect the game that comes with you brand new GPU to play smoothly? Pre-patch it made no difference wether I played on low or ultra settings. I even tried setting the resolution to 800x600 which didn't make any difference either. Not to sound rude or anything, but are you sure you know what microstutter is? it's an irregular delay between frames. The framerate can appear as smooth as always, but believe me, you'll notice that stutter every 5 seconds! Not that it matters now, though. Like I said, it was eventuallt patched. My point was that Ubisoft doesn't exactly have a good track record when it comes to day one pre-patched PC ports.
Guess you didn't read the article, early release for consoles Feb and March for PC. So probably that's why you're getting dislikes. xD
but i'm not talking about PC , i'm talking about PS4 FC4 release was good , but other Ubi games were broken and full of glitchs so i hope they're not rushing it , gorgeous game like this need to be great at launch (like witcher 3 launch on consoles)
It's the good thing about using Dunia Engine not AnvilNext
Holy tits that looks good. Let's hope that the day one DLC and microtransactions don't taint the game.
This announcement came out of nowhere!! And it's coming in February what?!! I freakin love Far cry games, and we already know this will be amazing because Far cry does hunting incredibly well!
Holy...indeed they are my friend!
meh - i'll wait for horizon: zero dawn.
You can play both you know?
from what I saw in this vid, I don't want to play this game - it doesn't look interesting to me. and yea, I know I could play both if I wanted to.
@nucky64 If you don't like it then don't buy it but don't just throw senseless compressions here and there
@ThePope Accidentally hit Disagree, but yeah playing both is the best option lol.
Ktf26 I'm pretty sure that's what they were implying when they stated they'll wait for zero dawn. This game looks good but I think I'll wait aswell
Yea me too... I'll save my appetite for primitive(ish) protagonists, large creature hunting using pre-historic slash futuristic weapons in an open world jungle/savanna type game for Horizon as well. Plus, these yearly releases bug me, no matter how drastic the changes are with each iteration. Dunno... maybe its me.
@UltraNova I wouldn't put too much stock into Horizon, the only really decent game Guerrilla Games have made was Killzone 2, apart from that their games have been pretty meh. They're not exactly Naughty Dog level devs so you might want to pull in your expectations.
Just stop these senseless comparisons it's totally different game
So you'll take $1 when the world is offering you $2. Cool cool.
Or maybe people don't need to buy every game that releases every month of the year. I guess you have infinite funds. Try buying all these games with a family.
Awesome! Leaving last gen behind Far Cry! Sorry last gen guys, it's not personal ;)
Looks good. I better hurry and finish Far Cry 4 haha
Looks pretty cool on trailer except the overdone orange filter. Wonder how will they pull off story in this one.
I will reserve judgment entirely until after release. This is Ubisoft, after all. Nothing we see is definitely representative of what the game may end up like.
Day one for me. Far cry 4 was good I still think 3 was way better, but Far Cry has yet to let me down. And lets be honest, this looks awesome.
I think I would have preferred 3rd person over 1st person for this game. I find any game dealing with a more hand to hand style combat is challenging in a bad way with 1st person view. That said, the setting and premise seem really cool so I am open to this. Will wait to see more and hope it delivers.
That is a good point. Considering there is likely to be some language barriers here, it'd be nice to be able to actually see the playable character to form more of a connection to him. I honestly like the idea of this more than a new Far Cry myself, but the quick turnaround time is a little off putting.
This looks amazing.
Thats a time period i can dig also well pleased at the need to find food water and building weapons etc to survive adds something else to what was already a great formula. Hope they can translate some that to the multiplayer. That that mystic crap killed the last games MP for me.
Same day with Deus Ex? no thanks, I'll go with Deus Ex without thinking.
What a shame!!!. :p
Its kinda interesting being on the same day because Deus Ex is all about machines and Primal is all about Nature. 2 diferent worlds.
I'll get both.
lol so you'd get it if it came out a day after? what kind of logic is this? Is this some sort of "DAY ONE OR NEVERR" trend? I keep reading the same thing about Tomb raider and Fallout 4.
Was really hoping for dinos, but this is good too.
Far cry 3 and 4 were great and this setting is really refreshing! This is great news
Different setting,but you need a different mission approach as well.Opening areas by conquerable towers got old pretty fast.
maybe this time around you have to defeat a boss in order to conquer new areas.
The pre and re-birthed civilization themes are trending this Gen. Farcry 4 Engine used to power a Prehistoric/Stone Age World? ...I'll Take It! If this is to become a spin off series ..I'd love the next game to be set in Ancient Egypt ..or maybe for Assassin's Creed. I just wanna play in Ancient Egypt. Make it happen Ubisoft /
it looks like ARK and Forrest but just far cry at the front of it
Ubisoft, the masters of hype!
Skipped the last game but this looks great four player online co op hunting sweet.
thank god for something different! FC4 reminded me of a re-skinned FC3 and I got so bored I couldnt bring myself to finish it.....
wtf is it even about!? February!? HOW!?
Looks amazing, but will this get downgraded like Watch Dogs and The Division? I just can't trust UbiSoft.
Sounds amazing. So original in terms of settings. Will be so interesting to explore an era hardly touched on in gaming. No guns will be different too. Love the idea, pray for a good execution.
Screenshots???... you mean bullshots. good ol' Ubi
This just makes me want a new Turok game...
"But its still a FarCry game at its core" Climbing trees to fill in the map confirmed! It does look very interesting though, looking forward to seeing more.
Looks like Ark. It was only a matter of time before an AAA developer cashed in on this genre.
This looks pretty good :) with interesting setting.
Theres lot of features, but is this necessary in Far Cry? Maybe they testign some news features before developing FC5? Who knows?:) Other developer makes a revolution in his own series - Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 from CI Games. They take a lessens from prevoius two games and now want to make bigger and better game. After movies on YT i can say, that they have my green light to develop so vergy good looking game about lone wolf.
