The Planet Of The Apes Are Coming To PCs and Consoles!

The Planet Of The Apes Are Coming To PCs and Consoles!

The rebooted Planet of the Apes series jumps from cinema screen to computer screen in Last Frontier.

The Planet of the Apes series has been a long running success story for 20th Century Fox. Originally a novel written by Pierre Boulle in 1963, it was adapted into the successful 1968 film starring Charlton Heston.

The film series ran for another four features before also becoming a television series in both live action and animated forms.

Tim Burton tried rebooting the series in 2001 but that didn’t turn out so well especially with an ending that no one could make any sense out of.

So fans were skeptical when the series was rebooted again with Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2011. In my opinion, the film turned out to be far better than I was expecting and the series grows stronger with every new chapter.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes followed in 2014 and this year saw the release of War for the Planet of the Apes.

Andy Serkis who most famously was the motion capture artist for Gollum in The Lord of the Rings films and of course as Caesar in the Planet of the Apes reboot has joined forces with his own motion capture studio, The Imaginarium Studios, and FoxNext Games.

Together they are creating Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier, a story that takes place between Dawn and War of the Planet of the Apes.

The game has been described as a choice based narrative adventure that tells the story of two bands of survivors, one ape, the other human. The choices you make will change the course of the story as the game progresses with a choice of multiple different endings.

The adventure will have you play as both apes and humans so you will gain a better understanding of the conflict from both sides.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier will be released later this year on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
