Ever imagined what the PlayStation 4 and DualShock 4 controller would like in a Stone Age gaming den? Well, you’re in luck.

I’ve seen some of the odd ways through which publishers attempt to promote their video games over the years, but the latest for Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal is quite possibly one of the most bizarre, and yet, one of the most awesome. Just look at those images above – they’re an exact replica of Sony’s PlayStation 4 console and DualShock 4 controllers hand-crafted entirely from stone.

They were created by master carver and stone mason, Nick Roberson, who was commissioned to create the piece from stone, highlighting the Stone Age era that the franchise heads to in its latest entry, Far Cry Primal.

In addition to the console and controllers, Roberson was also commissioned to create an entire gaming den from the finest Fletcher Band sandstone, complete with a stone television, pizza box, beer can and a coffee table. It’s quite the scene – and we totally want ong image of a prehistoric take on the contemporary items of today, as regularly seen in modern gaming pads across the country” reads a statement issued by Ubisoft. A video, which can be seen below, shows some of the crafting process in action.

Announced back in October 2015, Far Cry Primal is set during the Stone Age and follows the story of Takkar, a seasoned hunter and the last surviving member of his hunting group. Upon arriving in the majestic and savage land of Oros, he will be faced with the bitterness of reality. In a world where humans are prey and there is but one goal – to survive.

Those who pre-order the game ahead of its forthcoming release will receive access to the “Legend of the Mammoth” bonus content. Through an additional 45 minutes of gameplay that spans three missions, players will take command of the mighty mammoth.

Far Cry Primal is scheduled to be released on February 23, 2016 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will later launch on PC on March 1, 2016.
