Ubisoft and Microsoft are offering a free digital copy of its World War I game Valiant Hearts with Xbox One pre-orders of Stone Age game Far Cry Primal.
The only explanation for this seems to be that they are both, in fact, set in the past, albeit, thousands of years apart. Yes, rather than offer a copy of Far Cry 4 or a backwards compatible version of Far Cry 3, Ubisoft is giving away its First World War European adventure game, which follows a number of characters and their faithful canine companion through the war-torn continent.
Despite moving away from modern times, Primal is said to be a full Far Cry title, with a main campaign lasting around 30 hours. This is at least partly due to the fact that the development team at Ubisoft decided early on not to include multiplayer and focus on creating as authentic a single player experience as possible.
Ubisoft has released a number of trailers for the game, which offer insight into its hero and story. The company is also promoting the game in a unique manner, with a competition to be flown to an undisclosed location in the French mountains for survival training before sleeping in a €500 a night cave.
In order to take advantage of the offer, you’ll need to pre-order Far Cry Primal and download Valiant Hearts by April 14th. Far Cry Primal is set for release on February 23rd on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC version scheduled for March 1st. You can check out the game’s minimum and recommended PC specs here.
