Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey looks set to follow our evolution

Platforms: PC | Sony PlayStation 4 | Microsoft Xbox One

Revealed last night at The Game Awards, the first game from Panache Digital Games, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey looks set to cover new ground in gaming covering a huge 8 MILLION years of pre-human history.

In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, players are challenged to survive and evolve in the harsh yet beautiful land of Africa spanning from 10 million to two million years ago. As hominids, players explore Neogene Africa, expand their territory, and evolve to advance their clan from one generation to the next in order to survive in this innovative take on the open world survival genre. The game and its mechanics rely on evolution, discovery, and survival as players traverse a variety of terrain and environments, encounter various predators, and learn new abilities to pass along to the next generation of their clan.

“We want to give an experience no player has ever lived before”, said Patrice Désilets, co-founder and creative director of Panache Digital Games. “Our small team will always seek to push the boundaries of what our medium is. The very early evolution of the humankind is an ambitious, truly immersive, and exclusive setting that will delight gamers of all types.”

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey stands out as a truly unique game that challenges players in unexpected ways,” said Michael Worosz, senior vice president and head of Private Division. “The pedigree and creativity of Patrice and the team at Panache Digital Games will be on full display, and we look forward to players around the world experiencing a new take on the survival genre.”

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is set to arrive on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC digitally in 2019.
