Patrice Desilets, creator of the Assassin's Creed universe, has been working together with his team at Panache Digital Games on Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey since 2014. The game will take place from prehistoric times and move forward with each episode - yes, the studio's debut title is an episodic adventure game. We will experience, among other things, the creation of the first tools, the fall of the Roman Empire or the Wright brothers' first flight from a third person perspective.
As in the Assassin's Creed series, there's a certain amount of artistic license and interpretation involved when it comes to the story. During The Game Awards, a fragment of the game will be presented, and after the event the GameSpot livestream will debut a full-fledged, extended gameplay clip, as Panache confirmed on Twitter.
"It's now time for @AncestorsGame to come out of the shadows. Watch @thegameawards this Thursday and tune into @GameSpot's livestream after the show for an extended gameplay session with @PatriceDez"
