I don't really get the notion that this is a cash in. Wouldn't a cash in be some quick, easy shit that barely takes any time? Like Far Cry 5 set in the same location as four or like 'Far Cry 4: YOU PLAY AS THE VILLAIN NOW' edition.
People just like being cynical for the sake of being cynical.

It's Ubisoft thread, you shouldn't expect much rational talk.

I hope they really add in a new style of gameplay. I am OK with reusing assets from FC but please don't be ice age FC without guns. There is a chance here to really make a good hunter/prey style game, stealth, resource management, camp building, etc. In depth inventory management and making traveling precarious and perilous. No huge map to unlock easily enough with towers and enemy camp #24 around the corner.

Let's have some good melee, TONS on animals, tough survival aspects and "boss" encounters really challenging and rewarding.

Just to be clear, there aren't going to be any dinosaurs there?

Because when I first saw it, I thought we'd get dinosaurs. Then I watched the trailer and it seems we're just getting the Ice Age environment. Which is nice, I don't want to say it's not, what with wooly mammoths and sabre tooth tigers and so on...

But they ain't no dinosaurs.

Man, they better not skimp on the megafauna

I want to see stuff like this

They said they are creating a game set in the Stone Age though... Sure, you'll have some creatures about... mastodons, sabretooths, big ass beavers, etc.. but stuff like that Paraceratherium (the largest in the chart) ? They predated humans by millions of years :\

They could always pull some DLC Blood Dragon/Yeti style. That would be rad.

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if they bend history somewhat to add some more outlandish or interesting species

Interest in this made me want to purchase Far Cry 4. Never considered because I suck at dual analog setup on fps games.

Does it have "lock-on" aim a la Zelda that helps you shoot enemies?

Oh I wouldn't be against it, but given that trailer, the press release, and the behind the scenes video, they seem to be wanting to play this with a straight face. I'd be down for an all-inclusive attitude towards megafauna regardless of historical accuracy though :)

A really strange direction for the series to go. I mean, the will change completely. I wonder if there's two Far Cry teams and another is working on a more traditional shooter. Also I expected there to be more of a break from FC after 4, but at least the setting sure is different.

I haven't played a Far Cry game since the first one, but the premise of Primal sounds very interesting and I may check this one out.

I stopped at 3 but from what people are saying about the newer ones the haven't changed much in terms of gameplay.

They did, Black Flag plays nothing like Unity (it plays a bit like 3 but not a lot) and Unity plays nothing like AC3. Even AC3 don't play like the Ezio trilogy.

Expect to be climbing regularly spaced tall trees to unlock map icons that lead you to Glittery Conch 1/40 and Cheetah Race 3/7, while leveling up enough to unlock Spear Chucking so you can unleash the caged Angry Mammoth placed just outside the enemy camp

I like that the primals aren't all the Hollywood ideal of what early man looked like. And it seems they're going bravely into that territory.

Agreed, I'm legit excited.

Did we see the same trailer? It was very "hollywoody" to me, expect breast size of female. The rest is pretty stereotypical image of masculine, "brute and hairy but yet not too much" type of look. If you srsly think that's how early man looked like (or were close to) then I have bad news for you man...
