Assassin’s Creed creator showing off new game at E3

Ancestors

Patrice Désilets, the creator of Assassin’s Creed, has already announced his new game. However, we know very little about it. All that is going to change at E3, and I’m curious to see what this grand creator has done.

Over on the Panache website, Ancestors : the Humankind Odyssey is described as:

a third person action-adventure survival episodic game.
Through each episode, 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 doesn’t really tell me much and made me immediately think of The Walking Dead. However, in a new communique, he explained that there’s a lot more to the game.

But in between narrative game releases you will be able to play Ancestors with your character in the open persistent world.  It is tough for me to fully explain it to you guys without talking about the secret sauce.  At the end I want to clarify that we are not aiming the same episodic stuff as what is on the market right now.  Maybe periodic-progressive is a better word?  We will coin the best term for this in the upcoming months.

A new kind of episodic/periodic-progressive gameplay? Big announcements coming up at E3? Could we see something cool in the coming weeks? I’d love to see a whole new franchise spawned from Désilets’ indie studio – I’m curious to see what he can produce without the restrictions (or financial support) of Ubisoft behind him. Anyone who can create a franchise like Assassin’s Creed immediately gets my attention, and even more so when he’s making a game about periods that changed humanity forever; the game sounds like it’s going to track major events of the past and possibly link them to the present or even future. So, Assassin’s Creed but without a Templar conspiracy? Obviously this is pure conjecture at this point, but I’m really intrigued and looking forward to his announcement at E3. Here’s hoping it’s something really worthwhile – otherwise it will get completely lost in the shuffle.

    Sounds interesting.

    They should demo the Manhattan Project, then announce Fallout 4.

    Super keen to see what they have in store here. Assassin’s Creed has done a lot to make period history sexy again and there are still so many great stories to tell. Games don’t always get to explore history in as much depth as Assassin’s Creed did and it’d be great if they could bring that to the table with the more colorful periods of history. Innovation can only be good for the industry.

        It is sounding like it might be awesome. I haven’t been excited about games announcements for a while now.

    Will definitely keep an eye out for this. Sounds like there will be an open world that will get “DLC” every now and then with a new part of story? That is how I understand what they are trying to say at least.
