Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Far Cry Primal, containing all you need to know about Far Cry Primal’s weapons, powerful Beast Master abilities, and vicious human foes. The five-minute trailer features an overview of who the player character is, weapons, and the basics of the story.

You will play Takkar the Beastmaster, armed with an array of weapons; spears, clubs, and bows create the foundation of your toolkit of death. Rare materials allow for crafting even more advanced weapons, slings, and traps.

New Video finally shows Farcrys human aspects

Posted on January 21, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

So you thought Far Cry Primal was all about the ancient animals right? No? That was just me? oh ok. Well today we are getting the chance to see that indeed there are other humans in this game in two new trailers from Ubisoft, and oh boy are they intresting. The first shows the player consuming what appears to be blood out of a skull while a shaman looks on. The Player then halucints (in best FarCry Style) and then we get a chance to see that all is not well in this game, and as in any really good game, people are trying to kill you. Look its a Far Cry game, you know exactly what to expect your going to have to find collectibles, liberate settlements, hunt for animals to get pieces of them to make things, and this time your going to do it in a more “Primal” environment.

just watch the trailer.

2016 and Gaming: A Year in Preview

Posted on December 28, 2015 by Kenny Keelan


As we’re closing in on the end of one year and getting ready to start the next, a lot of people are reflecting on the year that’s past and others are looking at the year to come. I’m one of those looking to the future and I’ll tell you why: 2016 and the coming years after are going to be an extremely exciting time for games. While gaming has always been a longtime passion of mine, I do have to admit that it has felt like, in the last couple generations, innovation and creativity had been been steadily decreasing while market saturation has been steadily increasing. It wasn’t looking good as the market was looking stale and things weren’t change. Sure, there were gimmicks that came and went but nothing really stuck. There were few real surprises and the things that jumped aboard the hype train were mostly games we’d been anticipating and asking for, for years. There was a lot of vaporware, a lot of E3s that came and went that left us wanting more and spending more time laughing at the flaws than celebrating the wonders. In my honest opinion, the fifth generation was the last generation that truly brought us wonders we never thought we’d see possible and all the last couple generations did was expand on that. We never saw anything truly groundbreaking and that’s part of why 2016 is going to be an exciting year: we are going to see a lot of broken ground and whether or not it will be truly successful, we finally see companies going out and taking risks and those are the kinds of moves that change gaming for the better. Follow the jump for our preview of the year to come and what to watch for!
