I’ve been exploring the land of Oros in Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal for a few weeks now, and as I approach the end of the game (and the Platinum Trophy!), I want to make sure I capture some moments of what makes the game so fun.
The setting is completely unique to most modern games that are out today. The combat is flawed in some ways, but each weapon is surprisingly fun to use. Ubisoft did a great job in providing gamers with prehistoric versions of a modern-day arsenal with things like fire bombs, throwing shards, and traps. The real strength, however, is in the beast master skill system. Taming and controlling 17 different animals is a blast, and they are essential to quickly and quietly taking over the various outposts and bonfires on the map.
In this video, you’ll see a quick example of how I use my owl & sabertooth tiger to stealthily approach and claim a bonfire.
