Far Cry Primal Doesn't Have Co-Op

It was a "difficult" decision not to include co-op, Ubisoft says.


Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft's upcoming prehistoric action-adventure game, won't offer co-op support. Writing in the game's Steam forums, community manager Jason Paradise explained why Ubisoft is keeping the emphasis on solo play for the upcoming Stone Age game, which arrives next month.

"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," Paradise explained (via Destructoid).

"This was definitely not a small undertaking," Paradise added. "Our focus was on delivering this fantasy which required clear priorities for the team. Therefore, in the early stages of the project, we made the difficult choice of focusing our efforts on the single-player experience.

The most recent entry in the Far Cry series, 2014's Far Cry 4, did offer co-op. It was a lot of fun, too. Far Cry Primal does not include any kind of multiplayer whatsoever.

In other recent news about Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft today announced the game's minimum and recommended PC specs and confirmed it will offer a no-HUD option.

Far Cry Primal is scheduled to launch on February 23 for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC edition will follow on March 1.
