Graeme Boyd and Julia Hardy took to the stage to get everyone hyped up for what's to come in X019 and then we jumped into one of our first major announcements. Rare Executive Producer Louise O'Connor took to the stage to reveal a brand-new IP from the company and the very first game released under the Xbox Game Studios banner: Everwild.
The trailer for X opened with us seeing some lovely animals milling about in nature. We then saw humans walking around carefully in the forest while a tiger-like creature growled in a cave. A band of three humans then walked up to a deer-like creature, and one of them put her hand on the deer's face before the game's title Everwild was revealed. It was there that the trailer ended.
"While Everwild is still early in development, we are very excited about the unique potential of the game we are creating," Rare studio head, Craig Duncan, said as reported by stevivor. "The Everwild team is focused on building an experience that allows for new ways to play in a natural and magical world. The development team, lead by Executive Producer Louse O’Connor, is creating something truly original and incredibly special that aims to be more than just a new IP."
"Everwild will give you memorable, engaging and meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share."
