  Digital Games today announced that Ancestors:

  The Humankind Odyssey will launch for PC* via

  the Epic

  Games Store on August 27, 2019, and digitally on PlayStation?4

  system, and across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X,

  the debut title from Panache Digital Games, the independent development

  studio co-founded in 2014 by Patrice Désilets, the original creative

  director of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

  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.

  unique setting that will captivate gamers of all types, and we look

  forward to players exploring our world later this year.”

  providing the best possible experience to all our players,” said Kari

  Toyama, Senior Producer at Private Division. “As partners, we support

  Panache in taking the time to ensure all versions of Ancestors:

  The Humankind Odyssey deliver the standard of polish upon

  independent teams.”
