Take a closer look at Michel Ancel's ambitious open world adventure
Hi everyone! I’m very happy to be back on PlayStation Blog to give you an update on WiLD, our brand new open world action-survival game I’m making with my new studio, Wild Sheep Studio.
WiLD is set in a lush, expansive world where your knowledge of the land will be crucial to your survival. You will learn and adapt to the ever changing world around you, whilst uncovering the secrets of the land.
As you would expect from mother nature, the world will continually change through different time of day, weather and seasonal changes. All of these affect your world, so at the start, it will be a challenge just to stay alive.
Once you get used to your surroundings, you will learn Shamanic abilities in order to take control of animals and exploit their unique abilities to assist with your survival. Discovering the relationship between man and nature is the essence of WiLD. As you can take control of any animal in the world, this opens up huge potential for emergent gameplay that will be unique to you.
In the video below, you’ll see the player with some Shamanic abilities seeking a way to summon the snake divinity to aid a clan member. It will give you a good idea of how the game plays and how a player controls animals against challenging situations.
I hope you enjoy the video and stay tuned for further news on WiLD!
