Damn nature, you scary
You can’t fault Wild’s ambition. Beyond Good And Evil creator Michel Ancel envisages a prehistoric world that spans an entire continent, encompassing dynamic weather, a day/night cycle, and all four seasons. You can possess any animal, from soaring eagles to swimming catfish, and each has its own abilities. To destroy a camp of tribesmen you’ll use a rabbit for distraction before charging in on the back of a massive bear. There’s mysterious multiplayer too, opening up the possibility of spying on mates as a crow. The only slight worry? We haven’t heard so much as a bleat from Ancel’s studio, Wild Sheep, in over a year.
