You can already file a pre-order on Amazon and that's where we pulled the very first details on Far Cry Primal.

Welcome to the Stone Age, a time of omnipresent danger and limitless adventure, where giant woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers rule the Earth, and humanity is at the bottom of the food chain. As the last survivor of your tribe, you will learn to craft a deadly arsenal, fend off fierce predators, and outsmart enemies to conquer Oros and save mankind.

  • RISE ABOVE EXTINCTION: Conquer your land, and your enemies, in the original fight for mankind's survival.
  • EXPERIENCE THE STONE AGE BY FAR CRY: Enter an open world sandbox filled with the unpredictable chaos and peril that the best-selling Far Cry franchise is known for.
  • CONQUER EPIC BEASTS: Hunt down dangerous predators, like the savage saber-toothed tiger and the elusive woolly mammoth.
  • BECOME THE APEX PREDATOR: Defeat the deadly tribes of Oros as you fight to unite mankind.
  • DISCOVER THE DEADLY WORLD OF OROS: Fight to survive amid lush redwood forests, harsh taiga, frozen tundra, and murky swamps.

Far Cry Primal is set in 10,000 BC, during the Stone Age. According to Creative Director Jean-Christophe Guyot, this is the perfect setting for the franchise.

The Stone Age is the perfect setting for a Far Cry game. Far Cry usually puts you at the edge of the known world, in a beautiful, lawless and savage frontier. The Stone Age is, in a way, the very first frontier for humankind; it’s the time when humans put a stick in the ground and claimed land for their own, the time when we started climbing the food chain. That came with conflict against other humans, of course, but also against nature itself.

The main character, Takkar, will have one main goal: survival. The game is set to launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 23, 2016, while PC gamers will have to wait for March; take a look at the first screenshots, trailer and creative vision video below.
