The Humankind Odyssey will be an Epic Games Store exclusive, with this version coming months before the console release.
A single-player, third-person exploration survival game, your journey in Ancestors begins as a hominid in Neogene Africa some 10 million years ago. As players take control of a group of early primates, the game allows clans to explore, expand their territory, and evolve. 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.
After years of work, the Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey release date is official and it isn't far off.
Ancestors is the first title from Desilets' new studio, Panache Digital Games. With Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, Patrice Désilets moves only to a more naturalistic explanation and allows players to experience first-hand the world through the eyes of human predecessors.
