Gamescom 2014 – WiLD, where you can play as anything you want

1 min read


Here’s something that hasn’t really been explore in games before. What if I wanted to soar like an eagle? Hunt prey in a pack of wolves? Swim upstream with all the other tasty salmon? Well, now there’s a game for that.

WiLD is a new PS4 exclusive title which will allow you to play as virtually anything your heart desires. The game was announced by Rayman creator Michel Ancel and is being developed by his independent studio, Wild Sheep.

What exactly is WiLD though? Well, I honestly have no idea. All the trailer gives away is a massive open world, various different wildlife for you to tinker with and some rather pretty weather effects. As to what you actually have to do, well who knows.

Still, it’s weird enough to be intriguing.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

    The stomping lands without dinosaurs. They are really trying hard these days.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    This could have been a Turok reboot. Having said that, I did feel a stirring.

  • Pieter Smal

    I will let this one go. Furries can play this *cough* game.

    • Gryphenwolf

      Yes.. yes we will. XD

  • Jonah Cash

    What did I just watch???? And that is one big ass barbel!!! I’d like to catch it!!

    • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

      Gotta catch em all

  • Kensei Seraph

    Too. Many. Gamescom. Articles…
    I need a summary article at the end of each day to tell me what is worth reading or else I’ll probably miss something interesting.

  • Kensei Seraph

    Looks interesting.
    Hopefully they release more information before we all forget about it.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I can fly higher than an eagle, because you’re the WiLD beneath my wings.

  • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

    Plot twist:

    While playing as animals trainers come, catch you and force you to do battle until you pass out every day

  • Hammersteyn

    Can I play as Lara?

    • Jac7

      Too soon.

      • Hammersteyn

        hehe probably

        • Jac7

          I don’t actually care too much though, Sony’s lineup of games look farking amazing. Them Order, them Bloodborne, Until Dawn. Lots of interesting games.

          • Hammersteyn

            Yeah, plus the new Silent Hill reveal softened the blow of losing Lara, though I still believe it’s a timed exclusive

          • Jac7

            Yep, and if it’s not, it will eventually make its way to the PC.

          • Hammersteyn

            I can live with that

    Once I get to “PS4” exclusive I just stop reading. No love for PC here. Moving along.

  • “Here’s something that hasn’t really been explored in games before.” Yeeeeees?
    “What if I wanted to soar like an eagle?” Wow that sounds amazing! I want to be an eagle!
    “Hunt prey in a pack of wolves?” Why the hell not? Sounds different, change is good, I want to try it.
    “Swim upstream with all the other tasty salmon?” Of course, pretty underwater graphics is always a win.
    “Well, now there’s a game for that.” Reaaaaally?
    “WiLD is a new PS4 exclusive….” Go F**K yourself!

    My reaction to this article hahaha. I didn`t read the rest or watch the video. Fffffs.
