[Various] Far Cry Primal accidentally revealed (Ice Age Survival Game?)

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Ubisoft is teasing an imminent announcement of something on its YouTube channel with what appears to be a livestream of a cave painting.

A cave painting of a man—or man-like creature—holding a bow and large torch, or perhaps a spear, while in the background, another bowman and a spearman appear to be leaning toward off-screen prey. There's also a silhouette of a hand, sparks flying from a fire, and ominous, primitive music.

It's not official, but Ubisoft's big announcement, as unintentionally revealed by the IGN Turkey Twitter account, is a new Far Cry game called Far Cry Primal. The post itself is gone, but the tweet remains



Translation "Far Cry Primal came from the first images" however, the Twitter account is now suspended and the picture from the link is no longer available. But speculation circulating currently has it that this will be a Far Cry 4 spin off like Far Cry Blood Dragon was to Far Cry 3. Along with that speculation is that it will take place during the Ice Age.

Edit: Got a picture of the Image they were talking about and was posted in the tweet:

KitGuru seems to think this might be another Survival Game except from a Triple A publisher:
Quote:

Given the insane popularity of titles like DayZ, Ark and Rust, amongst many, many other Early Access survival titles, it was only a matter of time before a Triple A publisher attempted to break in to the genre. Now we just have to wait and see how it turns out, who knows, maybe Ubisoft will be the first company to release a completed survival game that’s actually good. Or maybe it will also join the other popular survival games in Early Access, we’ll have to wait and see.

So Ubisoft is probably announcing a survival game. It was only a matter of time before the Triple A publishers took a crack at the genre following the success of Early Access titles. The big question is, do you think Ubisoft can pull it off? What would they need to do to set themselves apart from the pack?

Eurogamer seems to believe it is indeed based on an "Ice Age" era, however they aren't sure if it is a survival game or Blood Dragon spin-off:
Quote:
Far Cry Primal is an ice age spin-off

According to sources at Kotaku, Far Cry Primal will be set during the ice age. An accidentally posted (and quickly removed) tweet from IGN Turkey (via AllGamesBeta) corroborated this report.

In Ubisoft's most recent tweet we can see a 15-second video of the cave painting emphasising combat with mammoths and bears using bows and spears. The IGN Turkey image suggests that there's a couple of factions at war and clubs will be a new weapon too.

A previous tweet teased the tagline: "survival is timeless."

It's unclear if Far Cry Primal will be a full-priced adventure, DLC for Far Cry 4, or rather a smaller standalone spin-off, as 2013's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was before it.

Seems like an official trailer released:

So are they going to start milking the Far Cry series now? IMO the best one was 3. Skipped 4 because it looked like a re-skin of 3 but with a different story, location, and enemies. Kinda wish they would actually build on the story from 3.

What do you mean "start"?

Ubi has been flogging that horse for many moons.

If you look very closely in the middle.



You can clearly see this is drawn on a rock.



I think this game is going to be Rock Dogs.

The Spear could be hinting towards some Assassin's Creed style swords play. drool.gif

Oh how I wish.

FC4 was a lot of things but a reskin of FC3 is not one of them.

Should we expect some of these in the game?

sounds pretty sweet, I doubt they're releasing a full FC game so soon...probably an expansion like Blood Dragon, of which I haven't had the pleasure of playing yet (...aaand FC4 didn't work in my sig rig)
