One of the most impressive features of Far Cry Primal is its pretty expansive skill tree of new and upgraded abilities that you can unlock. With so many of these in the game, we thought we’d give you a list of just what you can get.
At the very start, you will only have access to the Survival Skills tree with Takkar, but as you recruit more specialists to your village, you’ll unlock more of these. In total, there are eight different trees to access, with six of them offering multiple rows of skills each.
As you play through the main story of Far Cry Primal, you will discover these different specialists in the map with a big yellow circle with their face in it. By going to that location, you will be tasked to complete a few different objectives that will then have that specialist join your village.
By doing this, you will have access to a slew of different abilities that can help you in a variety of ways in the game. These range from survival, fighting, crafting, and more.
