Far Cry Primal update

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...

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...

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...

Far Cry Primal does the Time Warp
