This is a provisional timeline of events that have occurred within the Far Cry universe. All events listed within this article are considered to be canon by in-game sources. It may be worth considering some events take place in parallel or alternate timelines and universes to account for many of the contradictory elements.

c.10,000 BCE

  • Three tribes, the Wenja, Udam, and Izila settle in the region of present-day Central Europe known as Oros, sparking conflict for resources and territory. The events of Far Cry Primal occur, culminating in the Udam, the last Neanderthals, going extinct soon after.

15th century

  • In the 15th century, the Chinese navigator and explorer Zheng He passed by the Rook Islands during a voyage to map the oceans. It was an ideal location for one of Zheng He's most trusted soldiers, Lin Cong. After Zheng He left the isles, Lin Cong stole one of Zheng He's colossal treasure ships named "the Chaoyang" (containing massive amounts of gold and treasure that were collected during Zheng He's many ocean voyages).
  • Lin Cong and his Chinese invaders ruled over Rook Islands where the natives suffered under their tyrannical reign.
  • Rook Islands were free from them when the Rakyat rebelled and a vengeful Zheng He returned to stop Lin Cong treachery. Lin Cong died and his faction was destroyed.
  • The Silver Dragon was buried with Lin Cong body in his entrapped and dragon-infested tomb.
