Our PC videos of Far Cry Primal

Our PC videos of Far Cry Primal

For the final part of our coverage of Far Cry: Primal, we saved the best for last. The PC version of the game will be available this week but since Ubisoft provided us with a review code, we had the chance to capture some footage a bit early for you guys. Miguel took care of it and apart from the few problems caused by Mirillis Action! you might notice from time to time in the videos, he enjoyed a perfectly smooth and optimized experience. He was just surprised to see neither HBAO+ option nor special fur effect as in Far Cry 4. As for antialiasing, there is no MSAA to be seen, but the game still looks great thankfully. Why don't you see for yourself and check out our 1080p/60fps videos?

Really hating the low-contrast filter. Is there any way to convert the washed-out vanilla version

to something normal like this (corrected with photoshop)?

i'd imagine you can fanny around with your TV settings if you want black crush?

It's not as easy as that because the effect is depth-dependent. So to remove it you would need access to the Z-Buffer. The slight black crush is just a side-effect of the quick photoshop makeup.

Best thing would be, if they just would allow to deactivate the diffusion effect. I really like contrast...

the "diffusion effect" is a result of the volumetric lighting. by definition, the air has "volume" or "fog" to make the light passing through it, visible.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (30 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (3 Hours ago)
