Far Cry Primal isn't too far away, and it's easy to think of it as just an expansion of Far Cry 4, but nothing could be further from the truth. While the game definitely carries with it a lot of series familiarity, it does so with a context that works like no other Far Cry game has.

Here's a snippet from our thoughts on that:
In Far Cry 3, lamentably we played as Jason Brody -- an OC kid dropped into an island jungle war where the locals were apparently incapable of getting any further than when you came aboard and start killing everyone, despite having no skills in that area at all. In fact, it was the most divisive component to that game, which arguably lead to the introduction of Ajay Ghale -- an American-Kyrati half breed who returns home to scatter his Mother’s ashes, in Far Cry 4, only to be drawn into a rebellion against an all-too familiar dictator. While the location of Kyrat is clearly fictional, it was also obviously based on the Himalayas (or, more specifically, Nepal) and the developers felt that at least having the main protagonist of mixed-heritage from the location, would silence player dissent against pro-American leads.

Unfortunately Ajay came complete with an American accent and wound up being something of a Jason Brody clone. It’s a problem the series has had for a while now, given the idea they want to drop players into exotic locales, but are too weary to remove Americana altogether from the product, as if no one in the US would buy the game because they couldn’t relate to it.

Even if Primal was just an extension of FC4, how is this different to any COD game, most of which have scored highly year in year out. Different story, add a few new features etc etc.
