Ever since Apple Arcade was announced, we’ve been following The Pathless from Giant Squid and Annapurna Interactive. It was one of the first games to be announced for the service. While initially only planned for PS4 and PC platforms, it has since been confirmed for not just Apple Arcade but also PS5. After a delay that gave us a vague 2020 release target, Sony finally revealed new gameplay for The Pathless at a PS5 event. Today, a release date has finally been announced for one of the games I’ve been wanting to play for a while. The Pathless from Giant Squid and Annapurna is a launch title for PS5 and it releases on November 12th on all platforms including Apple Arcade. Watch the new release date trailer for The Pathless below:
In The Pathless, you play as a hunter who has an eagle as a companion. Your aim is to lift a curse and explore gorgeous locations without a map. The last gameplay showcase even had a boss battle. Watch it here. Matt Nava of Giant Squid who is ABZU’s creator, art director, and director also was the art director on Journey prior. I’m definitely excited to check out The Pathless when it arrives. I’ll play it on iOS and then replay it on PS5 eventually if I enjoy it enough. A price point for consoles and PC hasn’t been announced yet. For Apple Arcade, you can play it in your subscription as usual. What did you think of ABZU from Giant Squid if you played it?
