Far Cry Primal

Good Graphics – Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal takes us on a wild ride back to 10,000BC and in this stoneage world there will no machine guns or grenade launchers to hunt with, just arrows and our wits (plus a few friendly animals if you want to play that way 🙂  It’s taken some of our favourite parts of the previous titles and is a welcome additional to the already pretty excellent Far Cry series.

As we’ve come to expect from the Far Cry team, the landscape of Oros is pretty good looking indeed, from the dense lush forests to vast fields of drying grass where mammoths graze.  The animals have a wonderful fur effect to them as well and are animated realistically making that first ­sabre-toothed tiger rather frightening.  Of course these sweet effects are going to need some decent gaming hardware to power things and we’ve tested out our Gaming Laptop and Desktop Gaming PC ranges so you can check things out quickly and easily.

First up, a popular configuration for gamers with the GTX 960 Graphics Card + intel i5 quad core in our GGPC Assassin Gaming PC decimates the defenders of the first bonfire.

Next we’ll take to the snowy mountains with the 15.6″ GGPC G960 Gaming Laptop as we use every arrow, spear and club to conquer this Udam camp!

There’s a heap of cool of stuff to do in the game. If you’re in a relaxed mood a little light hunting is great and if as you explore the caves and mountains you’ll often find great moments and locations to get tangled up in.  When it comes to pure action raiding the outposts of rival tribes gets pretty exciting and you’ll have the chance to take on some pretty brutal leaders along the way – I don’t want to spoil things so I’ll stop writing now 🙂

There is a lot of fun to be had in the wilderness and you can check out even more (spoiler free) quick tests via our GGPC YouTube Channel.
