Return to the brutal Mesolithic period with this stunning batch of Far Cry Primal screens
With the release of Far Cry Primal less than a month away, Ubisoft has released a quartet of new screenshots from the game, offering a glimpse into the distinctly savage world of Montreal-based studio’s upcoming Stone Age shooter. The latest screens from Far Cry Primal do a great job of showcasing the game’s visual prowess as they highlight a variety of distinct locales populated with savage prehistoric creatures and hostile tribal warriors just looking to turn the game’s protagonist Takkar into mammoth chow.
In this shot, Takkar stands ready, drawing a bead on a group of hostiles in a stunning subterranean cave setting. Check out the superb lighting effects and excellent use of shadow that convey a believable sense of mood, bringing the world of Far Cry to life like never before.
Life is hard in the unforgiving wilds of Far Cry Primal, and just like in previous entries in the series, you’ll need to take advantage of the benefits of tracking and tackling the local wildlife if you wish to make it far in your journey. Here a hunting party moves in on an elk and several fawns in a patch of tall grass, ready to pounce on their quarry. While previous games allowed you to mow down your furry foes with an array of modern weaponry, Takkar has no such luck, with thousands of years standing between our hero and a decent firearm.
If there’s one thing that sets Far Cry’s blend of open-world shooting apart from the pack, it’s found in the various dynamic events that players never see coming as they explore the vast worlds Ubisoft has forged. Of course, the same is true in Far Cry Primal. Here we see a hungry saber tooth tiger pouncing on the back of a towering mammoth in pursuit of dinner. We can’t help but feel Takkar would do well to get some distance between these ferocious creatures that make up the denizens of Far Cry Primal’s world, lest he wants to become a bloody stain in the sprawling prehistoric tundra.
Lastly, this shot showcases a stunning vista overlooking the game’s brutal, Mesolithic world. Sit back and take it in, and count down the days until Far Cry Primal unleashes its savage blend of open world, first-person action on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 23, with the Windows PC version rolling out just one week later on March 1st.
