Far Cry Primal Feels Like Where The Series Was Always Meant To Go

about X hours ago from

When I played (and loved) Far Cry 3, it was in spite of some glaring flaws. I adored the open world, but the story was a gaping hole in the experience. Except for Vaas. Oh, Vaas.

Far Cry's writing has always tended toward the summer blockbuster. The characters are often caricatures, wreaking havoc across the lush, far-flung locales for which the series is known. Despite menacing characters and perilous journeys, the franchise has never embraced its potential gravitas.

Ubisoft has long envisioned Far Cry as "Skyrim with guns." It's never quite reached that lofty goal, but shedding the firearms has done wonders for pushing the series toward its ambition of competing with Bethesda's best.

about X hours ago from

While fans wait for the still unannounced Resident Evil 7, Capcom is working hard to keep the enormous franchise front of mind. HD remakes of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 have been keeping players busy. Resident Evil Revelations 2 has given them something new to enjoy.

This May, the franchise will go in a direction that hasn’t been terribly kind to it in the past. Umbrella Corps takes cues from the imperfect Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

While Umbrella Corps is designed as a multiplayer shooter, it will support a single-player mode called “The Experiment.” There will be more than 20 missions that play out similar to a horde mode with objectives.
