We’re into another year of reasonably fresh hardware, and we don’t have enough new game franchises right now. Time to change all that then. Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Desilets happens to have a new franchise in the works. And it sounds like a massively episodic title that goes by the name of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
Announced at the Reboot Develop event in Croatia, Desilet’s described the new game as an episodic digital game, with a trailer charting some five million years of human history from the discovery of the Higgs Boson particle to the Crusades and beyond. Here’s the official synopsis from the Panache Digital Games website, with the game’s tagline being “the greatest journey of all, our own”.
Our first game is Ancestors : the Humankind Odyssey. Our game is a third person action-adventure survival episodic game. Through each episodes, we want the player to relive the greatest moments of mankind with a documentary twist. Our civilisation is one idea away from extinction… or evolution. Stay tuned much more to come in 2015!
“Through each episode,” says the game’s announcement page, “we want the player to relive the greatest moments of mankind with a documentary twist. Our civilisation is one idea away from extinction… or evolution.”
That’s about all that was revealed so far. Sounds kind of intriguing.
