Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third-person survival game created by Panache Digital Games and distributed by Private Division. The game requires players to control a bloodline of primates and to ensure their survival in prehistoric Africa and encourage its evolution. Let’s get to know more about this game here.
Vast exploration opportunities
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is set in an African jungle, but new environments unlock as you progress. You can explore the savannah, which is a beautiful and massive ecosystem of new wildlife forms like elephants. The game relies heavily on exploration, but you must know that venturing into unfamiliar lands can prove dangerous. However, there are many tools that you can build to safeguard yourself, like makeshift weapons to doll out attacks on venomous snakes, crocodiles, boars, and many more.
Survival is not an easy task
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is primarily a survival game, so you have to keep track of your health. To survive, you need to know what to eat, drink, and how much to sleep, or else you die. The game can hurt or kill you in many different ways. If you fall from a height, you stand a chance of breaking some bones. In case a predator attacks you, you could bleed to death. Even when you try eating a new type of food for the first time, for example, an egg from a bird’s nest, your character can fall sick. Fortunately, you can switch between characters later in the game, and your entire clan can access the skill sets and knowhow of your ape.
Three games modes available
Depending on how you wish to play, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey offers three game modes: First Time Experience, Survivor, and Custom. The First Time Experience mode is the standard mode that starts with tutorial objectives to kick-start your game. Survival and Custom modes will be locked at first. They will unlock only when you play more. The Survival Mode plunges you somewhere on the map and demands you to do all the survival tasks alone. The Custom mode takes you back to someplace on the map you already know and begin playing the game from there with any number of clan members you want.
Witness the evolution of generations
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey takes you back 10 million years and advances to 2 million years ago. You are required to assume the role of an ape that resembles humans, but the game never lets you play as a human. You monitor the clan of apes you form and see them grow over the years. This requires you to invite outsider apes to join the clan or by allowing couples to procreate. The skills you gather are discoverable as you explore. You can unlock them through a skill tree menu while sleeping.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is one of the most thrilling survival games that the gaming fraternity eagerly awaits. Here’s the trailer for you to get a better idea of what’s in store. To get more games of this genre, you can check out our website here.
