The slightly oddly spelt WiLD broke free of its cage of obscurity most recently, with a gameplay trailer guided by the creative director at developers Wild Sheep, Michel Ancel. He explained that the action adventure will focus on the relationship between man and nature.

Clearly though is a strong focus on animals in particular. No less important is that the world that players can explore is apparently massive.

While players find themselves traversing the landscape as a young shaman, they can not only ride certain animals, but also possess the bodies of animals and explore the landscape from their point of view. The examples given in the trailer included flying across the landscape as an eagle, or what looks like communing with a snake to slither one’s way through certain parts of the landscape.

Considering what a change of pace this dynamic offered in the few games that have attempted it before (Sorcery comes to mind), and how novel that was, the PS4 exclusive's premise is certainly promising. It looks utterly different to the usual fare where human avatars usually rule, and thoroughly intriguing.
