The Pathless – Are You Able to Lift the Curse?

From the creators of ABZÛ, The Pathless is a mythic adventure game about an archer and an eagle in a vast forest. It  is an independent action-adventure video game developed by Giant Squid and published by Annapurna Interactive

Become the Hunter, a master of archery who travels to a mystical island to dispel a curse of darkness that grips the world. Forge a connection with your eagle companion as you hunt corrupted spirits, but be careful not to become the hunted yourself. Explore misty forests full of secrets, solve puzzles in ancient ruins, and test your skill in epic battles. The bond with your eagle and the fate of the world hang in the balance.

Gameplay Walkthrough

Unlike other open world games, the game does not feature a mini-map. Players need to use “Spirit Vision” in order to find locations of interest. By exploring the game’s world, players would collect crystals which can be used to upgrade the eagle’s abilities. 

Throughout the hunter’s journey, she is hunted by invincible cursed spirits which attempt to separate her from her eagle. Players need to avoid alerting them through stealth. You will need to return light to the obelisks scattered in the game’s world, which weakens the curse spirits, allowing players to defeat them. Should the cursed spirits defeat you then you will lose the crystals that you have collected.

Do you have what it takes to lift the curse?

The game is out on PS4 and PS5, PC & Apple Arcade.
