Far Cry Primal is out next week, and you'll get to stomp around as a Wooly Mammoth.
We didn't say that you'd get to ride around on one of these great beasts, but you'll actually become one and do missions and everything. This will involve looking out from their eyes and peering past those deadly tusks as you line up a kill shot on some humans. Observe the majestic creature in this trailer.
So it involves some of the witch doctor hocus pocus which has become an inevitable part of the Far Cry series for some reason. We don't remember being an animal in any of the games so far, though you did have some pretty weird powers in Far Cry Instincts. To be honest, this all sounds a little too weird, as you go out and save the elder mammoth. Do they get wiser with old age? Then you spend a good deal of time killing humans, who are the good guys in the main game.
Still its good to see Ubisoft doing batty things with one of their biggest franchises and maybe this is some kind of wish fulfillment for players. Anyone who pre orders the game ahead of release on the 23rd of February will get this content for free.
