The creator of Assassin’s Creed Patrice Desilets has finally announced the release date along with a new trailer of his new title Ancestors. Patrice established his own brand new studio called Panache Digital Games and their first title is Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey also received a trailer back at The Game Awards 2018.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is planned as a multi-platform title and it being published by Private Division. This is the first game of its nature as it explores the earliest stages of human evolution where the human transforms from ape to man and this idea has never been considered below for a video game.
This makes it a very unique video game however if you look at the actual gameplay, it does not look bad at all. The game is an open-world survival with some roguelike elements thrown in the mix as well which is going to be the perfect blend for the title. Skills are learned in one generation and are passed to future generations making them smarter than the first generation thus leading to the evolution.
Desilets states in the new video:
Our goal for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is to provide an experience no player has ever lived before. Our small team is creating an ambitious and immersive game with a unique setting that will captivate gamers of all types, and we look forward to players exploring our world later this year.
