Far Cry Primal‘s latest trailer along with it’s release date dropped today at The Game Awards 2015 but apparently, Ubisoft still had a few announcements up it’s sleeve. Some of those announcements, such as locking an iconic animal of the ice age behind the collectors edition, was probably not going to well with the audience at large so they decided to not talk about it much.
According to the latest reports coming in and also the press release we’ve received from Ubisoft themselves, it seems like playing as a Mammoth will be exclusive for people who buy the collectors edition or go on to buy the DLCs that come with the collectors edition if they are ever available separately in the future.
The publisher describes this pack of activities as an “unique opportunity to play as the largest animal in Oros”, meaning that those with only the basic version of Far Cry Primal will be going without.
The contents of the collectors edition reads as:
Digital Content: all digital content available, a complete pack of ”Legend of the Mammoth” missions, a new weapon and 4 enhancements packs.
- “Legend of the Mammoth” missions: Up to 45 minutes of additional gameplay, where the player will have the unique opportunity to play as the largest animal in Oros, the almighty mammoth, and feel the power to stomp its enemies and defend its herd from other beasts and humans.
o Duel of beasts: A powerful rhino spirit dares to challenge your might. Battle him and his herd across treacherous cliffs to assert your dominance.
o The trapped elder: Bloodthirsty hunters have trapped your leader. Crash their camp and lead the elder to freedom.
o Hunt the hunter: The time for revenge is now. Lead your herd to crush those who threaten your survival.
- A new weapon, the Blood Shasti Club: A bloodstained club of bone and teeth once wielded by Ull, the vicious leader of the Udam. This weapon is unbreakable and cannot be consumed by flame.
- 4 enhancement packs: Offers early access to rare resources and unique customisation options.
