The developers Giant Squid, the creators behind ABZU, and Annapurna Interactive, the creators behind 12 minutes and Solar Ash, have finally released their action-packed adventure game, The Pathless. The Pathless was released worldwide on November 12th, 2020 for the PS4 and PS5, Apple Arcade, and the Epic Games Store. There will also be a physical copy that will be released in December sometime for the PS5.
Players in The Pathless will play as the Hunter, a master of archery, that will be accompanied by her eagle companion. Her mission is to dispel the curse of darkness that grips her world and to bring back the light. Yet, a dark foe, who commands gargantuan dark beasts from shadow and fire, stands in her way. This foe proclaims himself to be “The God Slayer,” and all should fear his unholy powers.
The Player must forge a connection with their eagle companion to become a stronger and more coordinated duo. The Player will be able to explore a vast, forested island full of secrets. Solve puzzles in long-forgotten, ancient ruins to help uncover forgotten beings of the past. The Player will test their skill with the bow in multiple epic battles against the forces of darkness and hunt down the corrupted spirits but the player must be careful not to become the hunted themselves. The bond that you forge with your eagle will help determine the fate of the world that hangs in the balance between light and dark.
With fantastic visuals and a very thorough story arch, players will find themselves transported to a world full of wonder and mystery. The Pathless is sure to be a classic looked back on for years to come. If you are interested in playing The Pathless today, you can check it out on the Apple Arcade or on the other platforms.
