The 2015 Game Awards are going on right now, and there will of course be some new game announcements and trailers to enjoy.
A couple of months ago Ubisoft announced the next title in their Far Cry franchise, and it was not what fans were expecting to see. The game, titled Far Cry Primal, would take place far in the past, long before the times that previous games in the series were set.
During The Game Awards the first gameplay trailer for Primal was released, and you can check it out below.
About Far Cry Primal:
The award-winning Far Cry franchise that stormed the tropics and the Himalayas now enters the original fight for humanity’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.
– 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.
– 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.
– 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.
You can pre-order Far Cry Primal for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and the game will be released on February 23, 2016.
UPDATE: Ubisoft has also released a couple more videos for the game, including an extended gameplay demo and a featurette discussing the abilities of animal companions, which we’ve added below.
