The much-anticipated Far Cry Primal leads the release of several games on Xbox One today, each bringing something different to the growing library of games on Microsoft’s console.
Far Cry Primal is the latest entry in the successful action survival game franchise. While most of its predecessors have been set in the present, Primal leaps back centuries to The Stone Age and lets the player control a caveman who must survive in a wild world without technology while fending off a variety of human and animal predators.

Play as Takkar, a seasoned hunter and the last surviving member of your group. There is one goal: survive in a world where you are the prey.
