Far Cry Primal has no cooperative or versus multiplayer. Ubisoft confirmed that the Far Cry offshoot game will be single player only. While Far Cry 3’s versus multiplayer never caught on with gamers, Far Cry 4’s co-op gameplay added some delicious opportunities for chaos in the sandbox shooter. Community manager Jason Paradise explained the decision to cut multiplayer.
We are focusing entirely on creating the best possible Far Cry experience for our fans. Bringing the Stone Age to life and providing players with a strong gameplay experience based off of the Far Cry legacy meant we had to reinvent our core gameplay loop.
Instead of real life companions, you get to make friends with saber-tooth tigers, wolves, eagle-owls, (is that a thing?) and mammoths in the game. That’s a fair trade. When has a real friend attacked a caveman for you? Far Cry Primal launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 23rd, and on Windows PC in March.
