Hiding in the shadows out of sight, I watch a group of hunters from a rival tribe chase after the bear. I follow, hidden, until they corner it. A fight breaks out and the bearwhich is still very much on firemauls the hunters to death. Its one of those beautiful, absurd moments of colliding AI, and I cant bring myself to finish the weakened bear off despite its pelt being a valuable crafting material. Far Cry Primal is a very silly videogame.
Its also one you might have played before. Ubisoft have taken the structure, systems, and general feel of the previous two games and transplanted them into the year 10,000 BC. There are no guns, obviously, but you soon find yourself settling into a familiar routine of hunting, crafting, and missioning. Even so, its amazing how neatly the Far Cry formula fits into such a wildly different setting.
The setting is Oros, a fictional valley somewhere in primeval Europe.
