Ubisoft scrawls Far Cry Primal system requirements on cave wall

Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal Creative Director Jean-Cristophe Guyot recently described the game's prehistoric setting as “the transition between man as a hunter-gatherer and as a settler.” It's played from the perspective of an early human struggling to survive in a hostile world, wielding only rocks, spears, bows, and overpowering body odor as weapons. You, however, will need to wield something a little more advanced if you want to get in on the action.

Don't forget that Far Cry Primal will not have co-op multiplayer, but it will have torture, mutilation, and the occasional, tasteful bumping of uglies. I'd call that a fair trade. It comes out on March 1.
