See How Ubisoft Went Back In Time For Far Cry Primal

about X hours ago from

Far Cry Primal, which is coming out next week, takes the franchise in an unexpected direction: the past. Executive producer Dan Hay says that the team wanted to strip Far Cry down to the chassis with this game, distilling it down to the fundamentals. From there, the team naturally had to build it back up, and a fascinating new video provides a behind-the-scenes look at how the team consulted with historians, linguists, and other experts to nail the feeling of Mesolithic life in 10,000 B.C.

The video explores the three main tribes that live in the game's world of Oros, a lush area based on Central and Eastern Europe's Carpathian Mountains. The Wenja are a tribe of hunter-gatherers who are looking for a new area to settle. The Izila have come from Mesopotamia, bringing their advanced agricultural knowledge with them, as well as a penchant for slavery. The Udam are a dying group of warriors who have had their bloodline ravaged by inbreeding. They rampage across Oros, hoping that these interlopers hold the key to their ultimate survival.

Travel Through Time With The First Trailer For 7th Dragon III: Code VFD

Sega America released a trailer for the next chapter in the 7th Dragon franchise today. The video, which features massive dragons battling against time-traveling plucky anime protagonists, shows off some of the RPG’s combat and cutscenes.

Despite the somewhat confusing naming conventions, 7th Dragon III: Code VFD is actually the fourth chapter in the 7th Dragon series, but Sega says the story holds up on its own – which is good, considering Code VFD will be the first time the series is released outside of Japan.

A new video showcasing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD doesn't reveal features we weren't aware of, but it does show lots of HD gameplay.

Nintendo has been pretty open about the assorted improvements and changes on the way for the Wii U port of Twilight Princess, but it's nice to see them all laid out in one video. It's also nice to see so much high-definition gameplay for the game.
