As one of the earliest reveals for X019, Rare Studios unveiled Everwild, a new IP using the Games as a Service model (i.e. Sea of Thieves).
The reveal trailer showed Everwild as a world flush with colorful forest scenery, diverse wildlife, and human forest-dwellers. The game hints at a symbiotic relationship between humans and some of the title’s wildlife. However, the trailer also offered a glimpse of possible tensions between humans and more aggressive predators.
The game’s wildlife appears similar in design to those found in No Man’s Sky.
According Craig Duncan, the Studio Head at Rare, on the Xbox’s news page:
- “The Everwild team is focused on building an experience that allows for new ways to play in a natural and magical world.”
- Everwild will give you memorable, engaging, and meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share.”
If the trailer is any indication, the game looks as if it will feature stealth elements to survive, but not much about the actual gameplay mechanics were revealed at X019.
No official release date for the game was announced.. Everwild will release for both the Xbox One and Windows 10.
