You wouldn’t be blamed in thinking that maybe the Far Cry franchise had run it’s course after the fourth entry. All the games have revolved around an open world format and some form of gunplay. They give you wide, open areas to explore and multiple ways to approach any situation which so far has been amazing but with each release, less and less changed. The series needed refreshing but most people were just expecting another gun toting, outpost taking holiday somewhere tropical or mountainous. What we have now instead is Far Cry Primal, something not many people were expecting.
Many of the gameplay mechanics have remained from the previous entries, such as the open world and freedom of the approach, but this time there are no guns. The video below will give you an idea better than I ever could, see for yourself and give it a watch!
