    I thought odd number of Far Cry would take it to "paradise" world.

    Below Far Cry franchise locations:
    1 : Tropical Island
    2 : Africa
    3 : Tropical Island
    4 : Himalayan Mountains(?)
    5 : City or Country?

    Cute. I played 1, 2 and 3 - 1 is a GREAT, outstanding game in it's category, number 2 was kinda boring (remember all those "diamonds" that one is supposed to collect time and again?:confused:)... Number 3 was VERY BORING. I skipped the one with elephants and the people armed with arrows&bow..I'll try this one, though...

    I'll skip this one, or simply wait until the price is much lower. Why? I don't expect anything new when it comes to gameplay...sure it can be entertaining but how much more of the same do we need?

    Well, I got Primal for 7 euro (which I thought was better than 4 which in turn is too similar to 3). That was well worth it. If I had time I might run through it again.

    If this game will truly look like this then I will preorder it. I do agree with everyone on the postes though about it being the same game over and over. But for me the graphics will make up for the lack of gameplay.
    I won't hold my breath for the price to come down, as Farcry just keeps the price high for a long time.

    FC5 will be the Gameworks title?
    Last good FarCry it was FC 4.
    FarCry Primal (i finished it) and it was dissapointment. I forced myself to finish it. Lol
    FarCry 4 looks much better than his much younger brother - Primal.
    It's abit shame.
    No Gameworks and console way of programming..

    Far Cry 5 is AMD far as I know, being made with those Vega64 features for FP16 optimizations for one thing.

    Then again Watch_Dogs 2 was a AMD game initially and touted with DX12 support, Nvidia probably offered a better deal or something changed and it got some gameworks effects instead.
    Performance is a bit so-so for AMD GPU's still I believe but the hybrid engine used for these games has that issue, perhaps just a hardware problem with how the high-end AMD GPU's are a bit lacking in some areas but what do I know.

    EDIT: Well anyways, I believe AMD is still holding on to FC5 so far and it's being a showcase for Vega GPU's again.
    (Can't really poke into it but I wonder how things look like for AMD and Nvidia in the Vulkan code for Wolfenstein 2 and if that's holding back their GPU's a bit such as these "problems" with async compute but just for the 1080Ti for some reason.)

    Wonder if there will be a bonus level where the protagonist starts tripping at a site with dinosaur bones for some Far Cry Primal-esque gameplay...

    Same here. This first FC title I am not enthused about. I dont care how "exotic" Montana may be, but the usual rural redneck NPCs with all too familiar accents will take any 'exotic-ness' out of it. Plus, as much as I enjoyed FC3/4, if its the same devs and their 'FC formula', at some point I envision myself tiring of the gameplay. Will it be the same liberating territory or outposts, camps, towns as before or something new altogether?

    Gamworks is not a problem it is open source, the only problem is that some better graphics effects need much power like some shadow options but Turf hbao+ and al lot other stuff dont give a huge performance impact.

    This title getting Gameworks and some AMD stuff for higher FPS. I see Nvidia Turf effect on the video.

    Farcry 4 was an improvement on 3 in some was and worse in others, Primal looked so bad that it wouldn't appeal to me if it was free to keep.

    So far this looks good but I've only seen little pieces of it, not sure what it will be like overall.

    Don't forget about the graphics downgrade. Waiting for Far Cry 5 E3 vs Retail comparison video. :D

    Its good to know. I didn't notoce on the video all details.

    I like see HBAO+/VXAO and nvidia soft-shadows there. After my poor experiences with Primal.
    Games like FC - with alot animated trees, and shadows, really benefits from it.
    Game on the video looks near photo-realistic. So photogrammetry really work there.
    I hope this game will be as good as FC4. And they not implement their absurd DRM system.

    I'd almost consider this game for the graphics, but I'm not sure yet. FC4 looked great but the plot was... lacking, to put it nicely.
