/// Ubisoft: Far Cry Primal Is A “Full-On Far Cry,” Main Campaign Is Around 30 Hours!

In an interview with IGN, Lead Writer Kevin Shortt explained that, while Far Cry Primal may not have a ‘5‘ in its title, it is Ubisoft’s next full Far Cry game and will include a 30-hour campaign:

For us, Primal is a full-on Far Cry. The main campaign is around 30 hours, we’ve created a whole new world, new flora and fauna. it’s a full game, and so if anyone has doubts about that, they just spend a bit of time in the game to realize it’s something huge. This is our new Far Cry game.

Asked about the lack of dinosaurs, Shortt said they weren’t going to stray outside of their designated time period:

Yes it’s prehistoric but it’s a period in the stone age we wanted to represent. And dinos, historically, are millions of years in the past, and humans and dinos never were together, so we just decided to be true to that. Would it be fun? Sure. But for us, no. We wanted to represent the stone age – we want to be as true to that period as we can while giving our colorful flair.
