Say hello to WiLD, an open-world action-survival game requiring players to master nature and control animals and live through their eyes. It’s the mastermind of Rayman creator Michel Ancel.
A renowned game designer through and through, Ancel left behind some his responsibilities at French giant Ubisoft to lead a new indie studio called Wild Sheep, and WiLD
is his newfound team’s first original title.
WiLD is set in a lush, expansive world where your knowledge of the land is crucial to survival. You will have to learn and adapt to the ever changing world around you, whilst uncovering its many secrets. It has a similar vibe to Horizon: Zero Dawn

As expected of a game revolving around nature, there is a full day and night cycle, as well as dynamic weather and seasonal changes. These variables will pose challenges to your survival, challenges that can overcome through intelligent gameplay.
Once you become accustomed to the beautiful yet arduous land, you will learn Shamanic abilities that allow you take control of animals and exploit their unique abilities to assist with your survival, opening up huge potential for emergent gameplay that’s unique to you. Watch the gameplay walkthrough for a taste…
Clearly, discovering the relationship between man and nature is the essence of WiLD
and makes for an interesting, potentially captivating story and gameplay.
Wild Sheep’s Wild is probably one of the most interesting games no one is talking about, and the fact that it’s being led by gaming genius like Ancel makes us have expectations for it. What about you?
