Private Division and Panache Digital Games announced that Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will launch for PC on the 27th of August. The game will also be coming to PS4 and Xbox One in December 2019.
In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, players are challenged to survive and evolve in the harsh yet beautiful land of Africa spanning from ten million to two million years ago. As humankind’s primate predecessors, players explore Neogene Africa, expand their territory, and evolve to advance their clan from one generation to the next in order to survive in this innovative take on the open world survival genre. The game and its mechanics rely on evolution, discovery, and survival as players traverse a variety of terrain and environments, encounter various predators, and learn new abilities to pass along to the next generation of their clan.
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.
In conjunction with the release date announcement, Panache Digital Games and Private Division have unveiled the second episode of a three-part video series featuring Patrice Désilets explaining the game’s unique mechanics and concepts.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will be available digitally for PC via the Epic Games Store, and digitally for PS4 and Xbox One. The game will support the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish (Castilian), Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Russian, Polish, Portuguese and Arabic.
