Private Division and Panache Digital Games today launched Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey on Steam following its successful 2019 launch on PS4, Xbox One, and the Epic Game Store. This unique third-person open-world survival game is the debut title from independent studio Panache Digital Games, co-founded in 2014 by Patrice Désilets.
Since its original release, the game has received multiple accolades and award nominations including “Best Foreign Independent Game” from Pégases, the “Pixel d’Or for Originality and Innovation” from JeuxVideo.com as well as “Innovation in Games” from Ludicious Awards.

In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey players embark on the most incredible odyssey known to humankind, the human evolution, and relive the early stages of life millions of years ago, battling a harsh and brutal world to ensure the future of their lineage. The game mechanics focuses on three main principles: explore, expand, and evolve.
