Looks interesting, I wonder why they didn't announce it at E3, but is cool the game is out so soon.

So if previous Far Cry games were of any indication and since they're propping up the mammoth on the cover does this mean that it will be the memorable antagonist that goes AWOL for the rest of the game?

Can't wait to see who voices it

probably large rocks

and you're probably joking but they will be in the game. they were even in AC: Chronicles, and that's a 2D game where 95% of it is just you moving right.

Towers are Ubisoft
Are you gonna climb and smack the butt of an animal so he takes your map and reveals the location "camp ooga Chaka ooga Chaka"?

I first thought it was just a DLC like Blood Dragon, but this is Far Cry 5.

There was a survey revealed by Eurogamer a few months ago about what the players would that to see for a future Far Cry. So Ubisoft may really turn the franchise into a series of crazy locations with the same design roots...à la Assassin's Creed.

The game is less the 5 months out and that is the best trailer they could put together. Why not go full action and actually show us something worthwhile?

Because that is a reveal trailer and a reveal trailer does not "go full action". It must gives hints about the universe, the ambience, the characters (including animals here). You must ask yourself questions about the game. Ubisoft has a media-marketing plan for the next 5 months, they won't give you everything on the first day because you have to watch their next videos...that will give answers to the questions the previous ones raised.

A character surviving in the environment they grew up in?
Fuck you Ubi, where is my befuddled fish out of water character?!

This looks fine but I can't see myself playing another FC early next year.

Be cool if the animals in this are really dangerous

Also if there wasn't any English spoken in the game - but I'm extremely doubtful on that

How are they going to make those towers you climb to reveal the map?

climb a mammoth innit

tbf am looking forward to the Woolly Rhino DLC.

or the collectors edition where the dumb statue is a just a fuck off piece of mesolithic rock

Strange setting for Ubi because they ain't got any famous faces to act as quest givers/pre order DLC. Maybe you'll just mooch around asking deer n ibex for fetch quests.

This...is not why I play Far Cry. Skipping this. It's just assets used from Far Cry 4.

I know this is kind of OT but is Far Cry 4 worth checking out? I never got the game but this makes me want to get back into the series.

They've got a mammoth task ahead of them to outdo Far Cry 4 in my eyes.

I'm interested though.

Hold up now... Mirror's Edge, Gravity Rush Remastered, Naruto UNS 4, Deus Ex: MD, and now this all in February? Christ on toast my wallet is in a corner whimpering.

Yep. Feb is going to be insane.

This looks like so much fun. I'm surprised how this came out of nowhere and now it's one of my most anticipated games.

Did they really invent a language for this game? Anyone know?

Do we have a time period? Looks post ice age, but still lots of megafauna. 10,000-9,000 BCE sound about right? Anyone want to take a stab at if this is Europe? Will there be Neanderthal?

I'm not saying it's a bad thing, because god knows the preview/hype cycle has gotten way too long at this point, it's just surprising.

If there is no recognizable language in the game, then that is likely another reason they haven't been doing too much press on it. Think about all the previous Ubi reveals/hype cycles... there's a loooooooot of monologue going on in those trailers, trying to get the audience invested in the characters on screen. They wouldn't be able to do that here. It'd be all "darmok and jalad at tanagra", which I don't think would play well if they dragged on the marketing cycle for the game.

Having said that, if there isn't going to be a understandable spoken language (or even subs), then that could be potentially very interesting in that they'll have to rely on camera movements and NPC animations to point out or demonstrate what they'd like the player to do, which I think could be cool and would be a unique design challenge.

The website says Stone Age so I wouldn't expect to see Neanderthals... but this is Ubi so... lol
