Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Will Launch on August 27

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.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release is expected at the end of the year, in December. It will also join other PC marketplaces a year later, once the exclusivity deal ends.

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.

Co-Founder and Creative Director of Panache Digital Games, Patrice Désilets commented:

Our goal for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is to provide an experience no player has ever lived before. 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.
