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.
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.

Can’t shoot straight, don’t understand maps, shocking memory &…. what was I saying….! 🤔
I am a Content Creator who also Live Streams. I love playing video games, talking about video games and I also write about them as I am an editor for a gaming magazine.
What genre of game do I play? Indie games & story driven games mostly.
Other than that my time is taken up being a Mamma. Yes, I am half Italian and you will find the odd Italian word or phrase being dropped into my streams. Particularly when I become excited 😎
Too many games not enough time!
