Ubisoft release new video exploring the recreation of the Stone Age for Far Cry Primal.



Far Cry Primal

Ubisoft release video exploring the recreation of the Stone Age for Far Cry Primal.

The short documentary explores the challenges in creating a game set 10 000 years ago and looks at the work of the Far Cry Primal’s directors, animators, programmers. It also shows how a brand new language, Wenja, was created for the game.


Ubisoft Montreal tapped into the expertise of historians, anthropologists, linguistics and movement coaches to create the Stone Age as accurately as possible. It makes for fascinating viewing and is worth a watch before the serious business of hunting, exploring and murdering begins.

Far Cry Primal is out this week on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and comes to Windows PC on 1st March, 2016.

Buy Far Cry Primal on Amazon.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
