I always feel lost and late to the game when little things like Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey falls through the cracks in the mix of other huge titles talked about and released. You most likely missed out on this as well given the fact that there wasn't more than a base concept talked about from developer Panache Digital Games. That and when not many things are fully shown or talked about Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey in a word of required visuals it slips very easily. I feel bad and so should you as this also happens to be a title in the works from the creator of Assassin's Creed and other amazing titles.
While all we have to show you for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is the short little video you can see below, we have a few of the core ideas that we can expect to crop up in Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. Like the fact that it is most likely going to be an episodic adventure that starts out with the extremely early events of human evolution. We'll see a small bit, get some more narrative story, and then let loose into an open world in each episode of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey then wait for the next step. Each episode carrying over stats and choices from the last and all taking place during another major historical event that shaped not only the human race but their culture too.
It also sounds like Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will also have you playing through an overarching story of a family line in the end. One description given from the director at Panache Digital Games is like you are playing the first human in the family line whom eventually becomes the Queen. That isn't exactly what will happen in Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey but picture that you are watching the full history of one family from the first homo erect us to the modern day version they slowly turn into. I just hope it all ends with us staring at our phones and ignoring everyone in the real world.
Here, have a look at Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey in action as well as a bit of the core concepts released a while back.
