During the Xbox Games Show today, Rare revealed a trailer for their upcoming game Everwild, which had been announced last year. It's a new property for the 34-year old studio, whose latest project has been Sea of Thieves.
Everwild is all about a natural rhythm in the world and magic flowing though nature. The trailer featured a large fantasy world filled with animals, some like in our world and some unique to Everwild. A group of humans explored the landscape. The human characters were magi of a kind, performing spells to heal dying animals. They also cared for baby animals, picking them up and carrying them.
The humans' magical powers likely come from them being in tune with the natural rhythm of the world. Near the end of the trailer, they seemed to be summoning a spirits of some kind.
After the trailer, Everwild executive producer Louise O'Connor appeared and described the game's world as eternal, with magic flowing through it. She also thanked the community for their support so far.
Everwild will be coming to Game Pass, Xbox Series X, and Windows 10.

I'm a longtime Rare fan, and though it's been several years since I actively played their games I'm always excited to see what new projects they're working on. Everwild looks beautiful, and my main question is: will it be an online multiplayer game like Sea of Thieves, or will it be a single-player open world, or, perhaps, something else? Whatever it ends up being I'm happy to see Rare working on multiple projects and expanding their talents into new types of games.
