Far Cry Primal

Three Big Takeaways From Our Hands-On Time
by Kimberley Wallace

The Far Cry series has always been about survival in interesting locales, but Far Cry Primal is taking things to a new era: the Stone Age. Many have wondered how this change would affect the franchise. After all, so much about Far Cry has been tied up in its gunplay and bombastic explosions, but taking the journey to such a primitive time doesn't afford those opportunities. Recently, we got hands-on time at PSX to see how the game was shaping up, and were surprised by some of the fun new layers.

It's Still Very Much A Far Cry Game

No guns? No cars? No problem. Far Cry Primal makes up for these things with new elements that makes your battle against the wilderness feel exciting. Instead of cars, you can move around the landscape on the backs of various wildlife, such as woolly mammoths and sabretooth tigers. You still search the land for resources and hunt animals for crafting supplies, but everything fits the time period, like using animal bones to craft your next weapon.

Various outposts are on the map to take down to bring you one step close to dominating the land. More importantly, danger has always lurked all around you in Far Cry, and this entry is no different. In fact the Stone Age makes it even more brutal with rival tribes and vicious beasts, who all will do whatever it takes to ensure their survival. Think you've succeeded by taking down a beast you've been chasing down? Think again. The animal's scent could attract other predators just waiting to steal your hard-fought prize. Nobody plays nice, but you could lead your own tribe and gain ownership of the land. Isn't that really what Far Cry is about, anyway? Feeling like you've truly conquered every facet of your destination.

Overview

RISE ABOVE EXTINCTION

You will play as Takkar, a seasoned hunter and the last surviving member of your group. You have one goal: survival in a world where you are the prey. Grow your tribe and hone your skills to lead your people, conquer the land of Oros, and become the apex predator. Encounter a cast of memorable characters who can help push back the dangers of the wild. Face enemy tribes who will do anything to eradicate you and your allies.

STONE AGE BY FAR CRY

This isn't the Stone Age you thought you knew. This is the Stone Age with irreverence and mayhem. This is the Stone Age by Far Cry. Stalk enemy outposts and plan your attack using weapons and tools crafted from the bones of beasts you've killed. Master fire to expand your tactical options, setting your weapon on fire or scaring predators at night. Land the killing blow on the prey you've chased across the plains. But beware, its scent may attract predators willing to fight you for the prize. The rich setting of the Stone Age only multiplies the amount of deadly weapons, dangerous threats, and incredible stories that Far Cry is known for.

A WORLD RULED BY GIANT BEASTS

After the last Ice Age, the glaciers retreated to leave behind a land blooming with nature and resources where humans and animals alike can thrive - provided they have what it takes to prove their dominance. Discover the majestic and savage land of Oros with its breathtaking valley of redwood forests, harsh taiga, and humid swamps where you can see Earth as it was before man laid claim to it. Oros teems with life, ranging from large herds of deer and vicious packs of dire-wolves to warring enemy tribes. It is ruled by megafauna such as saber-toothed tigers and woolly mammoths, giant animals that dominated the Earth in the Stone Age and were feared by every other living being.

Weapons

STONE AGE WEAPONS

You'll need more than your wit to survive in Oros. With hand-crafted tools of war, you'll have a better chance of holding your own against the Stone Age's greatest threats. If that's not enough, light weapons ablaze or coat them with poison for some extra bite.

Double bow

Fires arrows with the speed of a rainstorm--and handles just as quickly. This expertly crafted bow is a hunter's best ally

Fire bomb

A weapon prized by the Izila. Throw at anything standing in your way to burn it with the fire of the sun

Sting bomb

A bag filled with bees. Angry bees. Throw at your enemies and run

Two-handed club

Heavy weapon outfitted with the skull of a cave lion. Slow to swing, but deals crushing blows

Beast Master

BECOME THE APEX PREDATOR

Back in the Stone Age, man wasn't at the top of the food chain. A huge part of how we climbed to the top, according to many experts, was our ability to domesticate other animals. This pact allowed us to take on bigger threats and gather more resources. In Far Cry Primal, you play as the first man to ever have the ability to control another animal. In fact, you will be able to tame every predator you find in the open-world. By appeasing them with bait and making them trust you, you will get your very own companion to help you conquer Oros.

PREDATOR OR PREY

TAME THE WILDS

The Beast Master is the title of the player among the Wenja tribe. Players will acquire this title by demonstrating his special connection with Oros wildlife and his capacity to tame powerful predators to turn them into weapons. This concept is strongly integrated into the story, the missions and the gameplay through several key features such as taming systemic predators, controlling a flying owl or riding a baby mammoth.

A WORLD RULED BY DEADLY BEASTS

From wolves to sabretooth tigers to cave bears, and yes, even the honey badger, you can summon these animals at any moment and use them as distraction, or as your main plan of attack. Each animal has its own specific skill, for example, canines will bring back resources to you while free roaming, while felines are stealth experts.
