Far Fry Primal introduces a new mechanic that allows players to tame wild animals and use them as weapons in their battle for Oros Valley. In this video I take a look at the history of the companion AI systems and the problems faced along the way.

This video is inspired by Chris Seddon’s Nucl.AI 2016 talk “Animal House: Creating Systemic Animal Companions in Far Cry Primal”
