Wild is the story of a shaman that can possess wildlife

Sony continued its Paris Games Week event by unveiling a brand new first-party game called Wild, in which players control a tribal shaman that can take control of wild animals.


Sony's Paris Games Week event continued with the first footage of a new first-party adventure game called Wild.

Wild puts players in the role of a tribal shaman, who explores a vast wilderness and is in tune with his surroundings. He's so in tune with his environment that he can be one with the wildlife, allowing him to take control of them to see the world from different perspectives. The scenes included seeing the world from the eyes of a soaring eagle and a nimble rabbit, as well as the shaman riding a bear. This allowed the shaman to get closer to hostile cannibal tribes and come up with different ways to dispatch them.

This is the first post-Rayman effort from creator Michel Ancel and his new development studio, Wild Sheep Studio. Release date information has not been given, but look for more on Wild in the months ahead.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
