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.

Those usually crush black like motherfuckers.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (13 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (19 Hours ago)
