Far Cry Primal has been released earlier this week on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the PC version of the game only releasing next week. Ubisoft's PC ports are hit and miss, so the lack of footage from the PC version has made more than a few fans of the series worried. Thankfully, it seems like Far Cry Primal will run quite nicely on PC.
Earlier today TotalBiscuit has streamed the PC version of Far Cry Primal. The archived stream is only available to subscribers, but some users have managed to capture screenshots of the Video settings screens. You can check out them out right below.
During the stream, TotalBiscuit has also tested various resolutions, and the verdict is definitely positive. According to reports, the game runs between 75-90 FPS at 1080p on Titan X in one of the more demanding areas with most settings on high. The game manages to run at around 60 FPS at 1440p and around 30 FPS at resolutions near 4K. Thankfully, it seems like the game doesn't stutter, so PC players won't have to deal with this issue
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game have received a day one patch yesterday, which introduces a new difficulty setting as well as some gameplay tweaks that should make the experience more enjoyable. Expert Mode is a difficulty setting that puts players' skills to the test, so be prepared if you're going to tackle the game with this difficulty setting.
Here's some of the features of the Far Cry Primal Expert Mode
Expert Mode Changes:
- Players’ health has been halved compared to Hard difficulty.
- Reduced players aim assist.
- AI shoots faster by 1/3
- Enemies in combat are not shown on mini map by default (they appear only if they are tagged).
- It takes the AI a longer time to “forget” you when you hide
- The aim assist box is reduced for several weapon types (bow, club, spear)
- The player damage is reduced
Far Cry Primal is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will launch on PC next week, on March 1st.
