Ancestors The Humankind Odyssey

Whatever you want to say about Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, you sure can’t say it’s not trying to do something very different than the norm. Thrusting us millions of years in the past to humanity’s distant ancestors is a trip of a concept, and to go along with it they’ve introduced a new video series called simply Experiences.

In the video, Game Director Patrice Désilets steps out into the real world to explore the themes of his game and how the things our ancestors experienced are still mirrored today. He promises to look at a wide range of personalities and jobs, such as athletes, scientists, and creative minds.

In the first episode he talks to Dr. Niobe Thompson to discuss survival 10 million years ago in Neogene Africa, where the game takes place and promises many challenges ahead, much like it did those many millions years ago.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will launch August 27th for PC, with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release in December. 7 more episodes of Experiences are slated to follow, so stay tuned.
