Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Desilets announced their new game last year however, the developer has been withholding details about it. Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is an adventure game which takes place in the prehistoric past. While some details are now available, much of the game is still a mystery to gamers. The developer has finally begun to release some details about their upcoming game.
GameIndustry.biz reports that the game is no longer and episodic. However, the game will still be a third-person action-adventure game similar to the Assassin’s Creed series. The developer revealed more details about the game at the Reboot Develop Conference yesterday.
Desilets stated that the content in the game is still the same. However, it’s now a “bigger game” in a “bigger world”. The game is now “open” and players will be able to “tell their own stories”. Exactly what this means is still uncertain however.
The conference also saw the release of a brand new trailer for the game. According to the teaser trailer, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is set 10 million years ago on the continent of Africa. The teaser video doesn’t reveal much new information however. It just shows a variety of prehistoric animals without any mention of a release period for the game.
During the conference, Desilets stated that the team is working to ensure the game is always “ready to ship”. The aim is to ensure the game is always playable and that there are no major problems with the game during all stages of its development. He also added that the game will be available in “months” and will most likely be available at trade shows such as E3 2017 in June.
