Far Cry Primal coming in 2016

Via Sam Machkovech for Ars Technica:

Far Cry Primal will take players to a prehistoric era that, according to today’s new teaser trailer, will be inhabited by saber-tooth tigers and wooly mammoths.

The teaser showed off rudimentary, handmade weapons like spears and bows, and the game’s announcement mentioned the need to craft other tools, make use of fire for protection, and guard fellow tribespeople.

The parts of Far Cry 4 that I really (very much) disliked were the strange drug-fueled shangri-la sequences (which disallowed the use of firearms) and really anything having to do with hunting animals.

Needless to say, I’ll be happily sitting this one out.
