It appears that much of Far Cry Primal's geography has been pulled from Far Cry 4. According to findings reported by Gamepressure, the map in Far Cry Primal replicates the topography of the map in Far Cry 4. A source close to Ubisoft allegedly confirmed to Kotaku that Far Cry Primal developers used Far Cry 4's heightmaps "as a basis for their game."
