Patrice Desilets has just announced that the next game his indie studio Panache Digital Games is making is called Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

The announcement comes from Desilets’s keynote at the Reboot Develop event in Croatia.

The trailer started by listing some of the greatest achievements and tribulations in human history from the recent Higgs boson scientific discovery, going back in time to Charles Darwin’s birth, the Wright brothers’ aviation invention, the Crusades, all the way back to the early tools first devised by humans.

The game’s tagline is “the greatest journey of all, our own.”

Desilets unfortunately did not stick around to elaborate or reveal any more details. Though he did say that his studio is hiring, so don’t expect gameplay footage any time soon.

The game’s website is now live and describes the project as a “third person action-adventure survival episodic game”. Each episode will let the player “relive the greatest moments of mankind with a documentary twist.”

Take a look at the teaser that was shown earlier, courtesy of AGB.

I really like that last line in the title image above. Apart from that, the "documentary" angle sounds about as exciting as a real documentary compared to a proper movie. (Documentaries aren't art, fyi.)

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey to Launch for PC on August 27, 2019 and Consoles in December 2019

Private Division and Panache Digital Games today announced that Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will launch for PC via the Epic Games Store on August 27, 2019, and digitally for PS4 system and Xbox One in December 2019.

In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, players are challenged to survive and evolve in the harsh yet beautiful land of Africa spanning from ten million to two million years ago. As humankind’s primate predecessors, players explore Neogene Africa, expand their territory, and evolve to advance their clan from one generation to the next in order to survive in this innovative take on the open world survival genre. 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.

“Our goal for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is to provide an experience no player has ever lived before”, said Patrice Désilets, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Panache Digital Games. “Our small team is creating an ambitious and immersive game with a unique setting that will captivate gamers of all types, and we look forward to players exploring our world later this year.”

As a developer focused publisher, this is an important approach we take in working with smaller independent teams.”

About Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third-person open world survival game where you Explore, Expand, and Evolve to advance your clan to the next generation in this exhilarating new adventure from the creator of Assassin’s Creed.

Embark on the most incredible odyssey known to humankind: human evolution. Spanning from 10 million to 2 million years ago, begin your journey, “Before Us,” in Neogene period Africa. Explore a beautiful yet ruthless world, from swinging through tree branches in the jungle to stalking prey across the golden savannah grasslands. Decide what attributes to learn and hone in order to pass down knowledge to future generations, from crafting tools to enhancing evasive tactics against predators. Just like real life, make sure to eat, drink, and sleep to stay alive and have the energy to face any danger that may come your way.

Grow your clan and find strength in numbers as you progress through critical evolutionary stages of human evolution. Your choices will write your clan’s story and determine if you can survive your evolution.

Key Features

• Explore Ruthless Africa: Explore the never-before-experienced world of Neogene Africa starting 10 million years ago at the dawn of humankind. From the tops of tree canopies overlooking lush jungles to the golden grasslands of the savannah, traverse a beautiful yet unforgiving landscape. For every breath-taking view, beware of the weather, predators, and other dangers that threaten your survival.

• Expand Your Territory and Grow Your Clan: Increase your chances of survival by uniting new members of your species and giving birth to future generations. Control different clan members, form bonds to create families, and work together to intimidate predators during expeditions. Conquer fear as you explore unknown locations in order to expand your territory.

• Evolve Through Multiple Generations: See the physical and intellectual evolution of the first hominids as you explore, learn, and survive. Spanning from 10 million to 2 million years ago, play as one of the first hominids and evolve over the course of millions of years during key stages in human evolution. Make crucial discoveries and hone physical abilities that will be passed down to future generations such as Ardipithecus ramidus and Australopithecus.

• Choose How You Survive: Evolution was not written in stone. Your decisions shape how you will overcome obstacles, increase your species, and what knowledge will pass on to future generations. Focus on specific attributes or choose a more balanced approach to survival. Your clan’s ability to survive will be directly impacted by your choices, making each player’s experience unique.
