The Game Awards 2018 has had plenty of reveals, including brand new gameplay footage of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. It’s an open-world survival single-player game from former Assassin’s Creed designer Patrice Desilets and the team at Panache Digital Games which tells the story of millions of years of evolutionary history in Africa. You’ll be seeing the evolution of apes that led to humankind as you play through the Earth’s past.
Environmental diversity is one of the big features as you explore the jungles and savannahs of Africa while surviving the harsh ecosystems and fighting off predators. You’ll take part in multiple generations of human ancestry from the early apes to Lucy, the closest and earliest relative of humans.
Panache was started in 2014 and Ancestors is the team’s first project. It first surfaced in 2015 and had more revealed in 2017, and now its set for a 2019 release. In the video above, you can see the gameplay trailer shown at The Game Awards. Here on GameSpot, we’ll have an exclusive extended look at the game in which you can see it in action following the conclusion of The Game Awards.
