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.

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 (Tribal War in Oros) for resources and territory. The events of Far Cry Primal occur, culminating in the Udam, the last Neanderthals, going extinct soon after.

500 BCE[]

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.

  • Death of Yaran Taíno chief Apito Bara, resulted in genocide against Yaran Taíno natives by Spanish invaders.
  • Entire surviving native Yaran Taíno population left the island to join other Taíno elsewhere, forcing Spanish invaders in Yara to import African slaves.
