So, is this announcement happening today or?

Wonder if this is what the blood dragon team was working on

Eh, they might be able to work out some sort of ancient crossbow if they use the alternative history of man and dinosaur co-existing.

Unlikely though.

They'll have to do something to keep the weaponry interesting, though.

Sounds quite cool, I loved Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon, felt a bit of fatigue with FC4. This one sounds like it has a really interesting setting, I'll be on the lookout.

Well yeah, the stream is live, so I'd guess in the next 20 mins. Also hoping for silliness like Blood Dragon.

Also - prehistoric sounds about right considering the banners for Ubi's twitter

I think just a bow as your only main weapon could work quite well actually. Throw in some basic tools like throwable/melee spears and you could have a decent little game. Whether on not it would work for 20/30 hours is up in the air though.

Reminds me of this :


I wonder if assets used in this project will find a new use elsewhere, considering how expensive they are to create I suppose so.

You can have tons of cool loosely period appropriate ancient megafauna in a game about prehistoric man without going Flinstones and having dinosaurs.

Heck, you could even have other human species.

Does not seem like it's going to be a AAA game, where's the hype ?

They would have made an announcement for an announcement if this was a big game I think.

That said I welcome mid-tier games.

It's zooming out alright. Slowly, but surely. What's the thing on the left?

Blood dragon announced in a really muted and partially viral way, so this could be like that... maybe.
