Patrice Désilets is best known as the creator of the Assassin's Creed

will arrive on Xbox One next year.Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
takes players to Neogene Africa as it was 10 million years ago. They're challenged with surviving and evolving from one generation to the next, expanding their territory and heping their clan to advance. The open world environment will include a range of terrain and environments, and will be filled with predators looking to stop homonid evolution in its tracks. Each ability that is learned by players can be passed on to future generations so that they're the best they can be when the game ends at a timeline of roughly 2 million years ago. You can see exactly what they mean in the trailer below.Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
will be released next year, more specifically some time after the end of March.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey achievements.
