Far Cry Primal Surprises Nobody With Big Day One Update It's a far cry from the old days of gaming

Far Cry Primal is due to release on PS4, Xbox One this Tuesday (February 23rd, March for PC) but we’ve managed to snag a copy a bit earlier than most folks.

As such, we’re able to tell you that Far Cry Primal receives a day one update that’ll run you around 591.6 MB on the PS4, though we’re not entirely sure of the Xbox One’s day one update, we can guess it’ll be a similar size with similar content.

So, what does the day one update do? The answer: lots.

Here’s the patch notes:
