Imaginati Studios, the newly-formed, London-based games division of Planet of the Apes performance capture studio Imaginarium Productions, has announced Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier, a cinematic adventure game set between the events of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes films. It will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall.
Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier will make use of the same performance capture technology facilities used for the Planet of the Apes films at Imaginarium Productions. It is set around a year after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and centers around a breakaway faction of apes who take refuge in the Rocky Mountains from the ongoing human-ape war, but are forced to descend into a human-owned valley as winter approaches and food depletes. The story has no black and white decisions or clear heroes and villains. Players will take control of both humans and apes, all of which are original characters, who can live or die based on the player’s decision. The game will have multiple endings depending on their actions on both sides.
IGN has an exclusive preview of the game, including an interview with Martin Alltimes, founder of Imaginarium Productions.
