We got our first up-close look at Everwild, Rare’s forthcoming game about the magic of the natural world, during the Xbox Games Showcase. In a new trailer titled ‘Eternals,’ we’re treated to a sumptuous look at the beautifully-realised world of Everwild and the fascinating creatures that inhabit it.
Everwild, which we first saw revealed at XO19 in November, has a colourful, painterly art style reminiscent of Studio Ghibli films like My Neighbor Totoro. The Eternals are people who are specially attuned to the rhythms of nature, and the trailer shows a group of these Eternals exploring the world and finding animals to help and heal.
It’s tough to tell from the trailer exactly what playing Everwild will be like – perhaps a sort of reverse Monster Hunter: World in which you go out to find massive creatures and treat their wounds rather than sizing them up for parts. Whatever the case, it’s gorgeous.
Have a look for yourself:
There’s no Everwild release date set yet, but Microsoft says it’ll be coming to Xbox Game Pass, which we hope includes PC.
