Far Cry Primal has now been updated to bring a free 4K Texture pack and permadeath options, both of which can be added to any existing difficulty level. 

These two changes will allow gamers to experience Far Cry Primal in a much more user customized game, allowing gamers to add the extra stakes and difficulty added by Permadeath and survivor modes while at the same time allowing these options to be used at lower standard difficulties to allow gamers to choose exactly how challenging they want the game to be. 

The high-resolutionTexture pack on PC will be an optional download for the game and will take up 3.2GB of storage to install. At this time we do not know how it affects the games VRAM requirements. 

 

 

In the game's survivor mode, your beasts will be less powerful and harder to tame, Takkar will have a stamina gauge that will make him less powerful unless he regularly sleeps and Takker will be much more susceptible to cold weather. 

Right now we do not know much about Far Cry Primal's upcoming 4K texture pack, with Ubisoft not stating any VRAM requirements.

The Ultra HD texture pack is a little lacklustre to be honest, You'd have to take screenshots then pixel peep to notice the difference.

Also doesn't seem to impact frames that much if at all, Between turning the pack on/off and running the benchmark I rebooted the game just to make sure.

At 1440P max settings the memory usage is around 1GB higher with the pack on -

HD pack on - 4230MB

HD pack off - 3364MBQuote

I imagine you wouldn't notice it on a large scale, as at a distance it will be rendering the lower res version anyway, otherwise you'd get bad flickering. Try comparing textures up close on props around the world. It's good that it doesn't affect FPS though 1GB higher is a fair increase for just textures.Quote

Honestly the difference is minuscule even up close, Here's a side by side, On the left it's 1080P max settings with the texture pack off and on the right it's 4K max settings with the texture pack on -
