Storyline

The game is set in 10,000 BC, in the Stone Age, a time where humans began to use stones to create tools for their daily life, where survival is a daily challenge as tribes come into conflict with one another and nature. Players take on the role of a hunter named Takkar (Elias Toufexis), who is stranded in Oros-a valley that was once covered in ice-with no weapons or resources after his hunting party is ambushed. Takkar will eventually rise to power, and lead his own tribe. Written by Ubisoft

Trivia

This is not considered Far Cry 5. See more »

Goofs

This game is set in prehistoric central Europe. Most of the animals are accurate with the time, with the exception of Jaguars (Panthera onca) Dholes (Cuon alpinus) and "Sabre-toothed tigers" (assumingly Smilodon populator). None of the three recognized species of Smilodon (S. populator, fatalis, and gracilis) are recorded in Europe, let alone anywhere else outside of North and South America, as are Jaguars. Dholes are only known to have lived in Southeastern Asia (and their historic range is not known to have extended into Europe). See more »

This ain't your grandpa's Fred Flintstone
15 April 2016 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

Blood Dragon once pulled a full conversion of Far Cry 3 and succeeded with it's writing and style but the gameplay and world felt like afterthoughts. Primal basically pulls the same stunt with Far Cry 4 (note the map similarities) but the developers doubled down on reworking the gameplay and most importunately world into a cohesive package. The narrative may be simplistic but what would one expect from a caveman revenge drama and the game is one of the most original big budget productions in years. Which other game will let you drink human eyeballs to send you on a drug induced mass murder vision! The entire game is actually noteworthy for being one of the most messed up M-rated games of all time due to over the over the top gore, the mentioned drugs, heaps of cannibalism and a lot of full frontal nudity. Primal's fictional language is another noteworthy standout but don't ask me how the dude bro audience will respond to it. Don't expect the same amount of content the standard setting Far Cry 4 brought to the table but Primal sill managed to deliver one of the most believable open-worlds of all time and again proves that the Ubisoft collect-a-thon formula works. The very easy Platinum trophy can lastly be achieved in about 25 hours. 8,5/10
