Ubisoft debuted the first gameplay trailer and a 10-minute gameplay walkthrough of Far Cry Primal during The Game Awards 2015 in Los Angeles this evening.
Beast Master is a new feature that lets players tame predators they find in the open world and use them as weapons, including wolves, sabretooth tigers, cave bears, honey badgers. Players will be able to summon these animals at any moment and use them as they like to take down enemies, scout areas, or act as a distraction.
