Wild Hearts is set in Azuma, a fantasy landscape inspired by feudal Japan, which is now ravaged by the once peaceful Kemono – altering their environment at the cost of the citizens’ lives. Kemono range from squirrels that command plants, to the huge Kingtusk boar. After a terrifying fight with the winter wolf Deathstalker, players become bearers of a technology that sustains their life and are forced to restore balance across the region.
Travel Azuma as a lone wolf or hunt with up to two friends, thanks to the game’s crossplay and co-op features across all platforms. You can also expand your battle plans and participate in special missions as you hunt in a group, team up with other hunters in the world, or take on the Kemono on your own. The game will feature voiceovers in English, Japanese, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
EA promises to reveal the title’s gameplay on October 5th.
