Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, the ape-evolution survival game coming from the creator of Assassin’s Creed, is set to show new gameplay footage, followed by an extended live stream session, at The Game Awards this week.
A brand new video from Panache Digital Games’s project will air this Thursday, trailed by a GameSpot livestream featuring Patrice Désilets, designer of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and the Assassin’s Creed series. This news was revealed in the game’s official Twitter account’s first-ever tweet.

This reveal comes long-awaited for the title, as it was initially announced in 2015 and players have since seen very few gameplay teasers. OnlySP posted a few prehistoric screenshots of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey back in June, and further developments have been quiet since.
This third-person survival title is expected to be filled with action—despite being revealed as a mostly non-violent experience—set 10 million years ago in Africa, and will allow the player to create their own rich story along the way. The game is being published by Private Division, Take-Two’s new indie label.
The Game Awards airs this Thursday, December 6th, at 8:30pm EST. The ceremony will be streamed live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, and can be watched on any of the major streaming and video platforms for free.
