Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes was a satisfying conclusion to the rebooted Apes prequel trilogy, and now a creative team-up of Andy Serkis’ The Imaginarium Studios and FoxNext Games will further flesh out the saga in a new video game titled Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier, existing in the narrative gap between Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.

Here's the official description:

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is a narrative adventure game of conquest, betrayal and survival with multiple endings. When the fates of a tribe of apes and a band of human survivors intertwine, two worlds collide as their precarious existence hangs in the balance. The game plunges the player into a rich, cinematic experience where every decision impacts the fragile balance between peace and war.

Players will be given the opportunity to play both sides of the growing conflict, gaining a deep understanding of the motivations, hopes and fears of humans and apes alike. The destinies of each species rests entirely on the player as the game pushes towards a tense, fragile peace, or a final bloody battle.

By combining The Imaginarium’s world-renowned expertise in performance capture and story-telling, Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier will deliver unprecedented levels of immersion and empathy to choice-based-adventure on console and PC when it debuts later this fall.

This arresting new Apes game was designed with the Unreal Engine, so the graphics capacity will be impressive, and Serkis' involvement give this gaming project an extra level of prestige.

Take a path into this first trailer and tell us if you'll be guided toward buying a copy when it swings into the marketplace on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall.
