Nature can be harsh. Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is out to make sure you experience it first-hand. It is time to adapt and survive as Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey comes PC on 27 August and consoles in December 2019.
The debut title for Panache Digital Games, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a different type of survival game. Rather than drop players into a blocky sandbox, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey challenges players to survive and evolve n a deceptively beautiful backdrop. Opening on the plains of Neogene Africa, Humankind Odyssey spans the early appearance of man’s ancestors and spans millions of years. As players take control of a group of early primates, the game allows clans to explore, expand their territory, and evolve. Generations will challenge the threats that they encounter, as players guide their evolution in to overcome the variety of terrain and predators that lie in wait.
As threats grow and change, players will need to find their very own way through the world of problems that arise, as described by Patrice Désilets, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Panache Digital Games.
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
It’s difficult to describe exactly how the game with a generational scale will play out, so check out the second episode in Panache Digital’s dive into the mechanics of their upcoming title.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will be available digitally for PC* on August 27, 2019, from the Epic Games Store. Later, in December 2019, it will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as a digital-only edition. You can find out more about the game on the game’s official website.
