Rare Announces Everwild, a Game Dripping with Majestic, Mysterious Wonder

Rare wants to create memorable experiences for everyone with its new IP Everwild. We just don't yet know how.

Rare's latest game was announced during Microsoft's X019 event. Titled Everwild, we don't yet know what the game is about, even if it does look utterly gorgeous. 

The announcement trailer shows a beautiful world full of bizarre, yet slightly familiar creatures. It'd be easy to say this is Fe meets Breath of the Wild, but it looks like the player character won't be wandering this vast and strange world alone, as the trailer reveals a horde of humans exploring together.

If there's anything to be gleaned from their hunched stances and concerned faces it's that they seem to be apprehensive about everything roaming the reaches of this brave new world. 

Though we'd love to know more, Rare didn't elaborate much in its accompanying written announcement. The company said:

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... 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.

Is it a co-op game? An open-world adventure? Do we progress from wide-eyed wonderer to lording over creation and feasting on the carcasses of the world's eccentric beasts? The current answer is: we don't know. 

As of this writing, there's no sign when we might learn more, either. We'll share any new Everwild info once it's available, though, so stay tuned to GameSkinny.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
