The next Far Cry is probably Far Cry Primal…probably

2 min read


Last year, Far Cry 4 was easily one of the best shooter games of 2014. More polished than the adventures of Jason BRO-die and filled with a vibrant style of Indian and Tibetan influences, Far Cry 4 also had something else going for it: It was proper good fun.

It’s pretty much at the top of my best shooters list, right behind Far Cry: Blood Dragon and John Wilkes Booth. And the sales agree. Naturally, Ubisoft is happy to keep on making more Far Cry games. But the next one is going way, way back into the past – as things get primal.

And thanks to IGN Turkey accidentally leaking a teaser for it which NeoGAF picked up on, it looks like the next game in the series is indeed Far Cry Primal:


According to sources over at Kotaku, Far Cry Primal will take place during the Ice Age (No, not that Ice Age), and pit players against the terrors of that era:

Expect to see woolly mammoths, tigers, and other prehistorical animals. Maybe tribal combat using bows and spears.

Right now, there’s also a livestream going on for the upcoming reveal, which I was dead certain was actually a teaser for Before Good And Evil, which would have been hilarious.

Far Cry Primal will most likely be the gap-year Far Cry, much like Far Cry Blood Dragon was between the third and fourth core games in the series. Except Primal won’t have a gigantic dinosaur to ride that has laser-Gatling guns mounted to the side, which is a damned shame.

Still, it’s an interesting idea before Far Cry 5 gets announced. I’m about to get Neanderthal on all your asses.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Wow, this sounds truly like a kak idea. Spears and bows in the place of RPG’s and assault riffles? Risky. Next thing you know you will not only craft your weapons but you will need to build a home with a nether portal to complete the game.

    So Far Cry is going Assassins Creed-ish on us??? Just give the series a rest for a while.. I’m getting kind a tired of all these open world games of recent, dont know about you guys…

  • Yeah. I would rather stick to ARK. At least there I can add gatling guns to my bronto. At least there I have a Bronto. 🙂

  • Nikola

    I actually like this idea sounds fresh, better than usual Far Cry ideas or should I call it a rehash like 4 was!

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    Far Cry Blood Dragon was still the best Far Cry ever… Far Cry 4 was a bit of a let down, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I should have…

    • Grand Admiral Chief

      FCBD was magnificent!

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        Yes!! Finally someone that agrees!! I loved those tutorials!!

        • Grand Admiral Chief

          Who did not agree? Them persons be unwise

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            They can go swim, in the large pool, outside of Cape Town, Directions to said pool is, drive to Cape Point, don’t stop, if you hit the barrier, you haven’t gone far enough….

  • Martin Human

    “survival is timeless” perhaps a bit of time travel suggested there??

    • Jac7

      Was my first thought as well.

  • Hammersteyn

    Sold, I really like Far Cry. The gunplay is fun, the abilities you unlock adds value to the gameplay and exploring the open world is fun.

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      I think this version will lean to the club/spear/bow play…

      • Hammersteyn

        With dinosaurs shooting lazors! Oh wait, That was blood dragon

        • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

          HAHA! Dammit man, is there nothing new out there?!

  • Jonah Cash

    Couldn’t finish Far Cry 4 or 2 and never touched 3… My wife bought 4 for me for Christmas… I hate the way the shooting works in Far Cry games. Also i don’t want to search for the story in games, I want the story in my face the whole way through.
