Last weekend, I came across a rare soundtrack in the wild — FAR CRY PRIMAL's OST on vinyl, still sealed — and it made me want to revisit one of my favourite games in the FAR CRY series.
MY SOUNDTRACK (file it under "F" for "FUCKING AWESOME")
Fittingly, the FAR CRY PRIMAL soundtrack features a lot of percussive instruments and real-life sounds, and it was composed by BAFTA award winner Jason Graves.
Jason gave each tribe a distinctive vibe: from the Wenja's haunting ram's horn to the screaming death whistles of the Izilia tribe.
EYE OF THE TIGER, BABY!
PRIMAL is best played in "SURVIVOR MODE":
- NO minimap
- LESS resources
- IF YOU DIE, you dead for good
- MORE DEADLY NPCs and ANIMALS
- FAST TRAVEL uses up precious resources
- NIGHTIME is your worst nightmare
