Ubisoft livestream teasing Far Cry Primal (Ice Age Far Cry)

Far Cry to me means open world/levels in an exotic environment, sandbox gameplay that lets you tackle enemies how you want, an ecosystem, different modes of transportation, etc.)

An ice age setting still has all that. Prehistoric weaponry, prehistoric ecosystem, dealing with enemy tribes, Stone Age weaponry

I didn't mind Farcry 3 but my god I found Farcry 4 to be one of the most generic open world games I ever played. Bored me to tears.

I really hope they mix this up if it's a spinoff like Blood Dragon.


Yeah, Farcry 4 is just incredibly dull. The game is beautiful... the world is beautiful... the characters are serviceable... but it's boring.

I find it ignorant that Ubi is trying this shit. As if their rep isn't bad enough.

They are now walking a fine line. It's one thing to be mysterious and have people get a little uppity over something and it's another to flat out lead people on. Do it too long and the whole thing can blow up in your face. Make GAF wait too long and your game could be a Souls/MGS/Halo hybrid and people will create hate threads and give you a 1.5 on metacritic just for pising them off.

Great way to generate interest in your announcement and get people to talk about it, but 24h of that? Really?

So do we actually have to wait for another Ice Age to happen before this gets revealed or what?

You know, this was actually a great way to reveal something, but stretching it this far turned it into a lame attempt. What the hell were they thinking?

Yeah because they started development right when Horizon got announced 4 months ago...

what, you think games take a long time to develop?

lol this guy

Why would a game based in the ice age have dinosaurs?

to be fair I say the same thing about Call of Duty. "if this near future game doesn't have dinosaurs they fucked up"

the main reason why i never buy the games

woke up and took a look at the stream, it's not even zooming out anymore!

such a dumb idea. the amount of dislikes on it should hopefully show them that this isn't exactly the best way to drum up conversation. the sheer fact that people are watching and talking about it doesn't inherently mean it's successful.

Damn, such a drop in views. This thing was at 15k at one point.

The trailer is still gonna get a ton of views either way. It was such a great marketing tactic but I think they pulled it too far. Still 3k views as of this post, not too shabby.

the more frequent noise teases are annoying as hell, keep quickly tabbing over to see if I'm missing anything.

looking like a 1700 [GMT] announce

Brace yourselves, it's happening.. in 10 minutes. At least I hope so. It's their usual time for posting trailers on YT.

I cant wait to climb the tower to find the outpost then shoot the guy and bow the animal to skin and craft the thing and find the trinket and sell the stuff and see everything the game has to see within the first 3 - 5 hours then be expected to do it all over again because ya gotta tick those boxes Morty.

But you loved re-clearing respawning checkpoints in Far Cry 2, no?
