Here’s Why Far Cry Primal Will Drop Multiplayer And Co-op

Far Cry Primal

Most of you will be aware of the fact that the Far Cry series never had a solid Multiplayer. Though there is an option for it but still, only a small portion of the audience care about it. The open-world is clearly designed for a more thrilled single-player experience and due to this reason, Ubisoft has decided to drop Multiplayer along with Co-op in Far Cry Primal.

Ubisoft’s Community Manager, Jason Paradise, has recently announced that their forthcoming action-adventure title, Far Car Primal, won’t have Multiplayer or Co-op. According to him, they completely want to focus on the single-player experience of the game. This news was announced on Steam where Jason stated that they are focusing entirely on creating the best possible Far Cry experience for their fans.

Here’s what Jason Paradise had to say regarding this. According to him, this was a difficult choice for them too.

“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.” He continued, “This was definitely not a small undertaking. 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.” 

Dropping the Multiplayer is kind of a good thing as it was almost going to waste but dropping the Co-op too? That’s what troubles most of the players as majority of them like to play with their friends or family to get a better experience but many of them still like to go on their journey solo, so this shouldn’t bother them much. Far Cry 4 did had a strong Co-op expirience as it featured a game mode known as Guns for Hire where two players would team up to create havoc in the open world. Far Cry Primal will be the first Far Cry game without any kind of multiplayer.

Far Cry Primal is set to release on February 23rd, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One. It will be released on PC one week later, on March 1, 2016. The game is developed and published by Ubisoft.
