Ubisoft releases a brand new trailer for its action-adventure title Far Cry Primal that gives a basic overview of the title’s world, story, and gameplay.
It’s a safe bet that those fans who have been anxiously awaiting the release of Far Cry Primal ever since its reveal trailer several months ago will already be somewhat familiar with the majority of the content for Ubisoft’s forthcoming action-adventure game. Nevertheless, there’s always the possibility of gamers who may not be aware of what Far Cry Primal‘s pre-historic influences are all about, so with that in mind, Ubisoft has released a new trailer giving a rundown of what the Stone Age inspired release has in store for them.
Narrated by voice actor Elias Toufexis – Adam Jensen of the Deus Ex franchise and Takkar of Far Cry Primal – not only are the game’s weapons, Beast Master abilities, and human foes explained, but its environment and plot are also discussed. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a proper video game trailer if some gameplay wasn’t shown off, so Ubisoft’s video also shares some actual footage from the title itself to give fans a taste of the brutal combat they’ll experience within the release’s beautiful scenery.
As far as weaponry goes, the trailer gives an overview of Takkar’s low-tech load-out of clubs, blades, and bows and arrows, as well as some interesting “bombs” that harness the power of nature. Additionally, the video covers the protagonist’s ability to commune with and command animals in his journey across the lush landscape of the fictional land of Oros to gather resources and save his Wenja tribe from extinction. For a closer look at these and other elements, give Far Cry Primal‘s latest trailer a gander below.
With the most recent trailer offering yet another look at the game, it’s obvious that Ubisoft has been busy promoting up a storm for Far Cry Primal. Just a few days ago, in fact, the company released a high-quality, live-action trailer with visuals on par of a big budget action movie in order to give fans a sense of the history of combat that spawned out of the primitive, yet intense, conflicts from as early as 10,000 BCE.
Ubisoft should be applauded for deviating from the typical Far Cry formula, but some fans of the series have voiced concerns over the developer’s decision to turn back the hands of time to disallow the use of modern technology such as high caliber guns and automatic weapons. However, if the trailer above is evidence of the final product, Far Cry Primal should more than surpass those fans’ expectations for the game, and provide them with a wholly original action-packed experience.
Nevertheless, with Far Cry Primal‘s release date less than two weeks away, gamers will have to wait to find out whether or not it deserves to be called one of the most anticipated video games of 2016. In the meantime, fans can study and pick apart Ubisoft’s “Survival 101” trailer for the title above to better understand the tricks of being Takkar, or they can learn even more by checking out our hands-on preview.
Far Cry Primal is set to release on February 23, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a launch date of March 1, 2016 in place for its PC version.
