Far Cry Primal trailer shows first-person mammoth gameplay

Take them to tusk.

Ubisoft has shown off a section of gameplay from Far Cry Primal's special Legend of the Mammoth missions - where you play as a mammoth in first-person.

(First person? First mammoth?)

Regardless, these three mammoth-based missions are the only time you play as the massive woolly mammal. You'll have to help your mammoth elder by squashing some humans, fight a rhino and then... stomp some more humans.

You only get access to these missions if you buy the game's Collector's Edition, Ubisoft said back in December. It now seems like this offer has been extended to anyone with a pre-order for the standard game.

Far Cry Primal is a spin-off from the standard Far Cry series, set in Prehistoric times when early humans fought with clubs and axes rather than guns.

It's due for release really soon - next week, in fact, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
