Far Cry Primal: 10 Things You Must Do First

9. Tame A Ferocious Animal

Animal companions are nothing new in games given it's 2016, but where Far Cry makes things interesting (and has always done so) is in its simulation of an eco-system. There were species' in previous titles that you didn't even have to interact with if you didn't want to, and this could lead to spectating scenes of animal-on-animal violence, putting on your best David Attenborough voice and enjoying the show. With Far Cry Primal you can use meat as bait to attract and tame animals for them to become your companion and a powerful ally for battle. Footage of the game in action shows wolves and bears, jaguars and sabertooth tigers, alongside rarer animals depending on which areas you walk into. Always wanted your own pet sabertooth tiger but don't want the vet bills or giant novelty litter tray? With Far Cry Primal, now you can!
