As was promised by Panache Digital Games earlier this week, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey debuted new gameplay during The Game Awards 2018. The open world survival game comes from the creator of Assassin's Creed Patrice Désilets and spans about ten million years of history.
Panache was started in 2014 and Ancestors is the team's first project. This trailer will give you a very small idea of what this game is about.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey was actually announced all the way back in 2015, though the game may have been in development as far back as 2013. The game will give players the opportunity to "Explore, Expand and Evolve to advance their clan to the next generation in the harsh, ruthless, yet lovely land of Africa starting 10 million years ago", according to the developer's official website. Due to release next year, Ancestors sees you striving to stay alive in a harsh but attractive Neogene Africa, during an era spanning 10 million to 2 million years ago. Evolution, discovery, and survival will be the game's primary mechanics, as you traverse Africa's terrain and environements, encountering predators and learning new abilities.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will be released next year, more specifically some time after the end of March.
