Far Cry Primal Video Shows Us Controllers Made From Actual Stone, Behind the Scenes Video Released

February 18, 2016Written by Alex Co

Get ready for two Far Cry Primal videos tonight, and one of them is just amazing to see. In the first video, it’s yet another behind-the-scenes video from Ubisoft where we see how Ubisoft brings the Stone Age to life in Far Cry Primal.

Got that? Good. Now here’s the awesome stuff. In the video above, we see Ubisoft’s take on “Primal Gaming,” which is just an odd way of saying “awesome guy makes console stuff out of stone.” Check out the details from the press release:

Working free-hand, accredited master carver and stone mason, Nick Roberson, was commissioned to intricately replicate these items from stone, to showcase the Stone Age era that the franchise moves to in the latest installment.

In addition to the PS4 console and controllers, Nick Roberson was also commissioned to craft an entire gaming den from hand-carved finest Fletcher Band sandstone. The den was also kitted out with a stone television, pizza box, beer can and an impressive carved coffee table.

The result is a stunning image of a prehistoric take on the contemporary items of today, as regularly seen in modern gaming pads across the country.   

Fantastic, no? Don’t forget to read up on our hands-on preview of Far Cry Primal, or immerse yourself in a few of our in-game videos right here.
