First announced during Microsoft’s Inside Xbox event in 2019, the game’s “unique and unforgettable experiences” continue to confound explanation, but its evocative aesthetic is definitely a choice.

According to last night’s Xbox Games Showcase presentation, Everwild casts you as an Eternal, a sort of fantasy eco-activist who can “sense and feel how magic flows through nature and connects every living thing”, and is probably also a vegan.  I don’t think I could eat a deer ferret with petal antlers. Maybe with some kind of cloud berry compote? Dunno.

Everwild is a brand new IP from Rare. A unique and unforgettable experience awaits in a natural and magical world.

The game is in development for Xbox Series X and PC, but no launch date has been confirmed for the moment.
