Taking a step (or a few thousand) steps back in time, the Far Cry series is going prehistoric.
The newest Far Cry, Far Cry: Primal was announced this week for a Feb. 23, 2016 release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. According to the Ubisoft Far Cry blog, the PC version will be launching sometime in March of the same year.
The newest installment in the fan-favorite series forces players to take on the role of Takkar, a hunter who lost his whole tribe, according to the official Ubisoft blog. Players can use their hunting and survival abilities to protect their young group.
One thing that doesn’t appear to have changed from past games in the series is the fact that it will take place in a large open world. Instead of fighting normal tigers and the like, however, players will need to contend with animals who were prevalent in the stone age. According to the trailer, this looks like mammoth and saber tooth tiger combat. As well as fighting the savage wilds, players will also need to contend with rival groups, from the look of the trailer.
Considering the fact that weapons will also be much more primitive than those used in previous Far Cry games, and Takkar is looking to be the potentially most bad ass character in the history of the series.
