Ubisoft has been teasing a new game announcement, and, as it turns out, that game is a new entry in one of the publisher’s big franchises, Far Cry.
But unlike previous games in the series, this latest title goes back in time. WAY back in time. You see, the game is titled Far Cry Primal, and it is set early in human history during the Stone Age.
Ubisoft has released a reveal trailer for the game and you can check it out along with more information and a bonus behind-the-scenes video below.
About Far Cry Primal:
The award-winning Far Cry franchise that stormed the tropics and the Himalayas now enters the original fight for humanityâ€™s survival with its innovative open-world sandbox gameplay, bringing together massive beasts, breathtaking environments, and unpredictable savage encounters.
Welcome to the Stone Age, a time of extreme danger and limitless adventure, when giant mammoths and sabretooth tigers ruled the Earth, and humanity is at the bottom of the food chain. As the last survivor of your hunting group, you will learn to craft a deadly arsenal, fend off fierce predators, and outsmart enemy tribes to conquer the land of Oros and become the Apex Predator.

This isnâ€™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.
– A WORLD RULED BY GIANT BEASTS
