Trailer Gives Us The Basics And Shows Off Pre-Order Bonus

about X hours ago from

With Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft is taking its popular first-person franchise back to the Stone Age. The guns are gone, but protagonist Takkar has several tricks up his sleeve to make it a more engaging experience. In addition to being quite the crafty journeyman, Takkar can also charm animals to fight alongside him.

In a time of violent tribes and prehistoric creatures, survival is no simple task. To combat the constant threat of death, Takkar can scavenge and craft different weapons ranging from clubs and spears to fire arrows and bee bombs. These weapons come in handy whether fighting fellow humans during stronghold attacks or simply trying to survive the night full of natural predators. 

If this feels a little too overwhelming, you're in luck. Ubisoft has released a primer video that shows how these various mechanics work within the Far Cry formula. The video also shows the different kinds of animals that Takkar can use as companions in action, as well as the adversaries you'll face. The video below wraps up with a look at the pre-order bonus sequence, which allows you to create havoc as a woolly mammoth.

Street Fighter V’s Flashy Trailer Shows Off Older Returning Cast Members

Street Fighter V is only one week away, and if you haven’t started building up the callouses on your thumbs, now’s the time. If you haven’t yet gotten motivated to rejoin the fight, perhaps a new trailer will get your blood pumping.

One of the more interesting things about this look at Street Fighter is how characters have aged. We saw something similar in Mortal Kombat X, but a gray-haired Bison and bearded Dhalsim remind us that even the heartiest of pugilists aren’t a match for Father Time.

Behaviour Interactive Brings Asymmetrical, Procedurally Generated Multiplayer Horror To PC

Behaviour Interactive Brings Asymmetrical, Procedurally Generated Multiplayer Horror To PC

Dead by Daylight is a newly announced horror title from developer Behaviour Interactive, a studio known for games like Wet and Naughty Bear. It sounds a lot like Illfonic’s upcoming Friday The 13th game. Both feature teens being maimed and an asymmetrical game of cat and mouse. This developer diary reveals the game and makes a case for how the game will be different when it eventually comes to Steam.

In Dead by Daylight, perspective is everything. If you’re one of the four unlucky teens being tracked by a murderer, your view is in third-person. If you’re the killer in this scenario, the game takes place in the first-person.

When you enter a level, you’re encouraged to cooperate with other players to survive. The procedurally generated stages switch up the layout so players don’t get too familiar with their environment.

Way back in the Game Boy era, Square Enix already knew it had something special in the Final Fantasy brand. The publisher opted to localize a number of games for a western audience, but adapted names to connect them to its popular RPG franchise.

In addition to the Final Fantasy Legend games (actually part of the SaGa series), there was the Zelda-like Final Fantasy Adventure. Today, it’s been re-released under a new name, Adventures of Mana (by way of a 2003 Game Boy Advance re-release called Sword of Mana).
