WiLD from Michel Ancel is an online survival game, lets you play as animal or human

WiLD from Rayman Legends developer Michel Ancel was announced today as an online survival adventure game.

Devoted to the wilderness and set 10,000 years ago when "nature and humanity were one," you can play as an animal or human.

Developed by Wild Sheep, co-founded by Ancel in Montpellier, the game is is the size of Europe and conatins dynamic weather and seasons, and is "filled with interactive opportunities that feel endless."

"Every time you play you’ll discover new things, even in the same place as before," said Ancel. "But the best feature came from our prototyping phase when we started playing as wolves, horses, sheep and… even trout. So we decided that in WiLD every creature should be playable, even the giant and dangerous ones.

"All these features combined, open so many new gameplay situations, especially when playing online. How you approach the game is up to you, what you do and even what you are – it’s all up to you."

Exclusively for PlayStation 4, the game will use the full power of the console and all its "crazy sharing capabilities."

The game is still in its early stage and more on it is promised soon.
