Watch: Base building and beast riding in Far Cry Primal

The opening 15 minutes of gameplay, too.

It's a close category every year, but Far Cry Primal looks set to be the best video game in which you can beat someone's brain out with a stone club in 2016. Ian Higton loves stone clubs so, when a recent hands-on opportunity with Far Cry Primal came up, he jumped at the chance.

Our intrepid hunter-gatherer bagged three videos for you to enjoy round the camp fire, the first of which is a lesson in how to kill several people and take their outpost while riding a sabre-tooth tiger.

Given this next video is a quick look at how base building works in Far Cry Primal, the body count is, unsurprisingly, considerably lower. On the plus side, it will give you an excellent idea of what it's like to build a house for a woman festooned with severed human ears.

We saved the biggest of our prehistoric previews for last. Giving you a good look at how hunting and crafting works, here's the first fifteen minutes of Far Cry Primal. Hopefully you've enjoyed all these videos - thanks for watching and feel free to share your thoughts on Far Cry Primal in the comments below.
