Far Cry Primal confirmed, hitting stores in February

Ubisoft has officially announced the next chapter in the Far Cry series.

As previously leaked by IGN Turkey, the title is called Far Cry Primal, and has been given a release date of February 23rd on PS4 and Xbox One. It'll be coming to PC in March of next year.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, with assistance from the firm's Toronto, Shanghai and Kiev studios. It's described as as a ‘full-fledged single player', and sees fans playing as a caveman called Takkar.

Players will be facing off agains ta variety of beats, including wool mammoths.

The interesting thing about Far Cry is that it's flexible, so when a team proposed to explore the idea of a Far Cry taking place during the Stone Age, we just said ‘let's hear it!' And the more we heard about it, the more we realised how much of a damn good idea it actually was,” said executive producer Dan Hay.

Creative director Jean-Christophe Guyot added: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.”
