ANCESTORS: THE HUMANKIND ODYSSEY
Developer/ publisher Panache Digital Games Format TBA Origin Canada Release TBA
First teased at E3 two years ago, the debut game from early Assassin’s Creed director Patrice Désilets’ new studio has grown in scope, and will no longer be episodic. Set in Africa between ten and two million years ago, it’s a thirdperson sandbox survival sim, and though we’re not exactly short of those right now, the prehistoric setting might help it stand out. Besides, while there will be some resource management involved, Désilets is adamant that players won’t spend too much time dabbling in menus. Cannibalism, however, could be on the table; Désilets and his staff have apparently been debating its inclusion. Heavens.
