Watch: Here's how Far Cry's Primal and Blood Dragon might connect to the rest of the series

Blood ties.

Just over a year ago, I published a video presenting my theory on how all the Far Cry games might be connected.

In that video I made the argument that Far Cry 1's protagonist, Jack Carver, had a hidden presence in each and every canonical Far Cry game, concluding with my prediction that Far Cry 5 will be set in South America. If you haven't already seen it, you can find it at the bottom of the page. I recommend watching it, in fact, before you proceed any further.

Once that video went live, I was bombarded with comments asking me how Blood Dragon would fit into the theory. Then after, Primal was released, I faced a similar barrage of questions along with accusations that its release had invalidated the conclusion to my theory.

The time has come for me to finally address these issues, so I've made a brand new Far Cry Connection video which specifically covers how Blood Dragon and Primal fit into the series.

And it doesn't just cover the easy stuff either, like the Blood Dragon Easter egg in Primal, or Urki being the antecedent of Hurk, oh no. I believe I've found a way to connect all the games to together once and for all that will, quite simply, BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

Either that or you'll just tut and mutter 'nonsense' to yourself. Either way, here's the original video, as I mentioned at the start of this post.

So what do you think? Has your mind been suitably blown or is my theory just too far-fetched? Let me know in the comments below!
