Planet Of The Apes is one of the most-loved film franchises by many movie lovers. While the film series has become quite popular and garnered quite a fan base, a video game based on the same will soon come into existence. Game developer Imaginati has revealed a teaser trailer for its 'Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier,' which will be released by the end of the year on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The setting of the upcoming game

The developers revealed that the game’s events would be set between the series’ two films, namely the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the latest War of the Planet of the Apes.

The game will be developed using the motion capture studio run by the films’ lead actor Andy Serkis. Serkis will also act as the executive producer for the upcoming game. The game is being produced in the Ealing Studios headquarters.

The game will be set a year after the events of Dawn and will focus on a group of Apes who have traveled to the Rocky Mountains in a bid to stay away from the ongoing human-ape war. However, as winter approaches and food sources dwindle, the apes are forced to take shelter in the human settlements nearby, which gives rise to conflict. The developers are aiming for the game length to be limited to around 2 to 3 hours, but one which will be replayable many times over.

Gameplay elements

The developers revealed that the 'Last Frontier' will present players with a morally ambiguous world, where their choices will have consequences. Each of the choices made in the game will affect whether a certain character lives or dies. However, the game will not offer players the freedom to control any of the characters or to explore the world, like most of the other video games do.

Instead, the developers have selected such a style of gameplay which will tell an interactive story to the players through the eyes of both the apes and the humans. Players will have to make a decision for both the parties and each of these decisions will indicate where the story will progress. The game-changing decision and choices will be presented to players every 15 to 20 seconds.

Due to their being no exploration or control of the character, the entire game will feel like a cinematic experience, where the gamers will only make the decisions. The graphics and visual of the game will be one section that the developers are extremely focused on. So, it would be interesting to check out the game once it comes out later this year.
