Patrice Désilets’ Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey has become the latest game to fall prey to the temptations of the Epic Games Store. The Assassin’s Creed creative director’s ambitious open-world survival game will be coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store on August 27th, 2019.

Console versions of Ancestors will arrive in December 2019, before the game finally arrives on Steam in 2020.

If this is the first time you’ve encounter Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, it looks like a very odd experience indeed. It’s set during the earliest stages of human evolution, covering the transition from ape to man.

“Our goal for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is to provide an experience no player has ever lived before,” says Désilets in a new video series which explores Ancestors’ various gameplay aspects. “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.”

There’s still a cloud of mystery around this project but the concept is certainly intriguing enough. It bears a few roguelike elements to its open-world survival as well. As players due, skills learned are gradually passed down to later generations, building up a base of human knowledge over the course of thousands of in-game years.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey comes to PC on August 27th.

Maybe put up some Quotes or cursive font on the title, as it is a bit confusing to read xD

well honestly i'm tired of this kind of news , just post about the games and not about platformes and stores from now on cause for me this epic store does not exist and so it's their exclusives at this point and will just be ignoring articles about games and have " epic games " in the title and i'm pretty sure i'm not alone here in this

u r not alone.
platforms should matter only while buying and only for price comparisons, other than that, focus on playing games not platforms.

hypothetically, if one store acquires exclusivity over all games but is not raising the prices, will everyone just stop playing games altogether.

canot wait that this get released it looks amazing i love the theme period, tho i will probably use cheats becouse i hate games where you need resources to survive so my expirience with it will be something like The Forest and Stranded Deep, both me and my friend loved thos two games but we hate that you are forced to travel to survive(now when i think of it you need to do same in Minecraft..) anyway i hope that they make this game playable in coop like you other player can join you and play as random clan member that you already have
