If that sounds like fun to you, you'll be able to pick up Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey on August 27th on PC.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey spans millions of years as players attempt to survive Neogene Africa as humanity's primate predecessors, evolving and expanding their territory while passing skills and knowledge over to the next generation. Generations will challenge the threats that they encounter, as players guide their evolution in to overcome the variety of terrain and predators that lie in wait. Following on from that, the game will then launch digitally in December on PS4 and Xbox One, though a specific release date hasn't been determined. "As a partner, we support Panache's decision to take all the time necessary to ensure that all versions of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey meets the quality criteria the team has set itself since its release".
"Private Division and Panache Digital Games passionately share the goal of providing all players with the best possible experience", said Kari Toyama, senior producer at Private Division.
