Wait a minute .... YOU'RE buying this game? I can't wait to see your eventual thread about how it's too liberal
I'm going to wait till it goes on sale. For me, the idea of having a Far Cry in civilized society is fresh, but not necessarily good. I've only played Far Cry 3, which I really liked, and Far Cry 4 almost pulled me in even with it's similar concept to 3, and Primal was a game I really would have liked to be a full blown Far Cry 5. But I passed on both, and I'm not going to get this one until sale.
I did read in the GameInformer article that they've taken some feedback on some things. They made the map more natural supposedly; now instead of climbing a tower to fill your map you just look at signs and boards for markers, like "beware of bears" signs.
