Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey takes to the trees in this new video

Platforms: PC | Sony PlayStation 4 | Microsoft Xbox One

Panache Digital Games and Private Division today revealed the second episode of the video series entitled "Experiences", where Creative Director Patrice Désilets explores Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey’s unique concepts with various experts outside of gaming.

Each video in the series features a noted specialist, from fields including anthropology, paleontology and wilderness survival. As these scientists, athletes, and creative minds share their own journeys, they discover how similar emotions and experiences are created within the game.

In the second episode – The Climber – Patrice Désilets joins Canadian rock climber and 2020 Olympics hopeful Alannah Yip during one of her training sessions to see how we still use many of the same motor skills and instincts as our ancestors to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges. Together, they discuss how both our hominid ancestors and modern-day humans push themselves to their physical limits in order to continually adapt and grow stronger. Upon visiting Panache’s studio, Alannah gets to experience the thrill of climbing, swinging, and exploring Neogene Africa from 10 million years ago, giving her a whole new perspective on climbing.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is coming to PC on 27 August and following on Xbox One and Playstation 4 in December.
