Planet Of The Apes is a franchise that has already successfully weathered 54 years, starting its franchise as a french novel entitled “La Planète des Singes” or Monkey Planet in it’s UK printing back in 1963 before making the move into being made into the 5 original films that hit cult classic status pretty soon.
These were followed then by a television series or two before that terrible 2001 remake with Matt Damon and then the recent successful rebooted trilogy and it seems now that Planet Of The Apes is ready to hit our screens through a different medium than DVD/ Blu-Ray, no instead this will be coming to our Xbox One.
Planet Of The Apes: The Last Frontier will put gamers in control over the coming trials and choices of a small tribe of Apes as well as a small band of Humans survivors during the time between Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes. Much like the popular Telltale titles, this game is played through making a series of choices, Planet Of The Apes will even implement multiplayer where each player will vote on what happens next.
This means the games story arc as well as it’s ending is changing with each and every decision you (and your friends) make from the moment you begin to the moment the credits role.
