Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier was apparently announced at the New York Comic-Con last year, but we suspect this is the first you’ll be hearing of the PlayStation 4 title, which is set between the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes movies. In production at Andy Serkis’ motion capture studio Imaginati Studios and FoxNext Games, the title promises to deliver a narrative-heavy experience, perhaps best compared to a Telltale title.
The story will focus on a group of apes who assume refuge in the Rocky Mountains during the human-ape conflict. However, as winter arrives and food supplies dwindle, they’re forced to move into human territory, prompting inevitable conflict. Interestingly, you’ll play as characters from both sides of the war, and any decisions you make will have consequences for all involved. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? The game’s due out later this year.
