From the creators of ABZÛ (Giant Squid Studios), The Pathless is a mythic adventure game about an archer and an eagle in a vast forest. Become the Hunter, a master of archery who travels to a mystical island to dispel a curse of darkness that grips the world. Forge a connection with your eagle companion as you hunt corrupted spirits, but be careful not to become the hunted yourself! Explore misty forests full of secrets, solve puzzles in ancient ruins, and test your skill in epic battles. The bond with your eagle and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
In The Pathless. you are allowed to explore a seamless open world with fluid and dynamic gameplay. You can hit talismans located all around you to boost your speed. The main focus of The Pathless is for you, the player, to feel as skilled as the Hunter, so hitting with your bow is oriented around timing, rather than aiming.
But as you explore, there is a threat to contend with: giant cursed spirits that are the source of the dark curse that plagues the world. They are invulnerable, fiery beasts that will stalk you and try to separate you from the eagle. Only by returning light to the obelisks within their domains will you be able to turn the tables and take them on. When you do, you will have to chase them down through the forest and corner them in an epic final battle to return light to the land.
The Pathless is set to release some time this year, 2020, on PS4, PS5, iOS, Microsoft Windows, tvOS and macOS.
