Here we are! Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will be available on Steam today, August 27th, at 1PM Eastern Time at a special Steam launch price for a limited time only.
To mark the occasion, we will be on Reddit r/pcgaming to answer all of your questions regarding the game from 10 AM to 12 PM* during an Ask Me Anything event!
At 1:30 PM*, we (the Panache Team) will be streaming Ancestors to give you a taste of what your adventure could be like. Make sure to join us on Twitch and Steam where Patrice Désilets, Cofounder and Creative Director, will be showing his off skills and the countless possibilities the game has to offer!
*All times given above are Eastern Time, North America.
The Steam release benefits from several patches and updates since the original launch, including:
- improved tutorials and additional objectives to guide the player
- controller vibration support
- new visual feedback on timing-based gameplay like combat and miscellaneous actions
- new RPG nodes to automate some clan life tasks, such as mating and bonding
- additional character animations
- bug fixes and more!
And remember: Ancestors is not about chasing green dots on a map. The game was designed to allow you to freely experiment and explore. We won’t tell you what to do or how to do it; in Ancestors, you are the co-author of your own story of evolution. Your survival as a lineage depends on the decisions you make as a player and the four core systems of the game (senses, intelligence, communication, and motricity) were built to support exploration so that you can develop your clan and species through generations.
OFFICIAL SOUNDTRACK ALSO AVAILABLE
It’s also the long-awaited release of the game’s official soundtrack. It will be offered on the Steam and Epic Games stores for the first two weeks and will be available as of September 9th on other music platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, etc.
Let this unique score transport you to the world of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey through a collection of 18 songs inspired by African rhythms and mixed specially for this official soundtrack. Composed and arranged by Montreal artist Mamo Koba, the music was created in collaboration with various musicians and vocalists from different backgrounds who all brought their personal flavor to the compositions.
Thank you for supporting us through these years, see you in Africa!
