Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey PS4, Xbox One editions launch four months after PC
Prehistoric ape evolution game Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey now has a firm release date for PC via the Epic Games Store, and a later launch window for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
On PC, Ancestors will arrive 27th August. It’s exclusive to Epic Games Store for a full year. On console, Ancestors will launch digitally sometime this December, around four months later. There’s no word on why console versions will take longer.
Ancestors is the first game in a decade from Patrice Desilets, one of the original creators behind Assassin’s Creed, now perhaps better known for his subsequent firing from the company. It’s primarily a survival game, with roguelike elements that allow you to pass on learned skills to later generations, in levels across thousands of years.
