Hello and welcome to the Marc Bloch Reviews Historical Video Games Monday news roundup. It’s a short one this week, but join us again on Wednesday for a review of Painters Guild. And if you like what we do here, why not leave a comment or subscribe us on Twitter at @BlochReviews?

The News

Ubisoft has announced Far Cry Primal, which appears to be some sort of pre-historic mammoth-hunter simulator. First, there was a long and puzzling livestream, and then, at long last, there was a trailer as well. Games marketing is so weird these days.

(PS: There may be certain, let us call them “people”, who might argue that a game set in pre-history – by virtue of said “pre-“ – does not belong on a site about games set in (non-pre-) history. But listen: This site is not one to busy itself with minor matters of chronology.)

A newly launched Kickstarter, Antinomy is an open-world action-adventure set in a fictionalised Middle Eastern country inspired by the Holy Land in 1892. It looks promising, so consider taking a look. The Kickstarter runs until the end of November. (Disclaimer: Your news editor has backed this game himself. Always use your best judgement plus health scepticism when deciding whether or not to back a Kickstarter project.) [Kickstarter]
