Ubisoft's Trials of the Blood Dragon leaked by Taiwan ratings board

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a rare example of Ubisoft having a cool idea, it being well-received, and then not immediately being ran into the ground with sequels and spinoffs. In fact, people have been clamouring for some new Blood Dragon fo...

Far Cry Primal adds Survivor Mode and 4K textures

A hella-of-a-lot of video games came out yesterday, from Dark Souls III to Ratchet & Clank, but perhaps you're short on cash, barely making rent, waiting on a tax refund (or, in my case, owe the IRS way too much). Maybe you want to take...

Far Cry Primal is adding Survivor mode (and 4K textures on PC)

Aside from a few specific animal encounters that went real south, I didn't find Far Cry Primal to be a challenging game. By the end of it, with all of the skills unlocked, I might as well have had a metal endoskeleton buried underneath my c...

Ubisoft recycled Far Cry 4 map making Far Cry Primal

When it comes to saving the environment, Ubisoft has taken a unique approach. The publisher has been caught red-handed recycling map layouts and topography in the Far Cry games. As spotted by Gamepressure.com (pictured below) the ...

There's a Blood Dragon easter egg in Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal turns the clock back to the Mesolithic, but the smallest sliver looks ahead to the cyber-dystopian 2007. Ubisoft managed to sneak a relic from Blood Dragon into one of Oros' many caves. At least it's thematically c...

 
Review: Far Cry Primal
Diamonds played a pivotal role in the story of Far Cry 2. In a war-torn African state on the brink of collapse, these jewels were prized items of great importance. They could be used to broker a false peace between two warrin...   read

Far Cry Primal
And we're back with video reviews! This time we're looking at Far Cry Primal, a game that I've been side-eying for a while now. Kyle did a lovely job reviewing the game -- and if you'd like to see some dope gameplay while hearing Kyle's words coming out of my mouth like some sort of possessed puppet, hoo boy do I have a treat for you.   read

Play as a mammoth in Far Cry Primal with pre-order

Ride the mammoth? Sure. I could do that at any 4th rate carny show or middle America bar on one of those mechanical mammoth rides. But be the mammoth? Only Far Cry Primal is going to let you do that. The "Legend of the Mammoth" pack is pre...

The Humble Ubisoft Bundle adds Blood Dragon

Far Cry Primal does the Time Warp
