The Pathless is a mythical open-world adventure game coming to the Apple Arcade later this year. Developed by Giant Squid and published by Annapurna Interactive, The Pathless takes place in a mystical land, invaded by cursed spirits. It’s up to you, an acrobatic huntress, and your incredibly well-trained eagle to bring light back to the world.
The game gives you a vast map to explore, riddled with secrets and puzzles, not to mention, the cursed spirits that are determined to stop you in your tracks. It’s not too often that a six-minute trailer narrated by a creative director gets us so excited, but The Pathless is an outstanding exception.
The lengthy gameplay walkthrough shows off a lot of cool mechanics and adorable features, such as needing to pet your eagle to keep him clean and flying true. Besides, the track record of Annapurna Interactive alone should trigger any mobile gamers inner curiosity. If you’re looking for a game to get excited about, The Pathless could be it.
Judging by the trailer, the map is navigable quickly by sliding, jumping, and flying on the back of your eagle. Once more, a timing system supercedes the traditional way of aiming down sight, making it more important than ever to hone your archery skills:
The Pathless release date is yet to be confirmed, but we know it’s launching sometime this year, and is coming to iOS via the Apple Arcade, as well as Microsoft Windows, Macintosh operating systems, and both Playstation 5 and 4. So there are multiple ways for our Android friends to get their hands on this fantastic open-world adventure.
