Adventure Game The Pathless Launches Today

the pathless

Connect with your eagle companion and explore a vast world in The Pathless.

The Pathless from developer Giant Squid, the team behind award-winning ABZÛ, is out today. Along with being a launch title for PS5, it’s also available for PS4, PC and Apple Arcade.

The team’s previous titles are known for allowing the player to explore and experience the game at their own pace. The Pathless will be no different. It’s an open-world game where players take on the role of The Hunter and their eagle companion. You’ll hunt corrupted spirits while you explore a world being overtaken by darkness.


A previously released trailer gave players an in-depth look at the game with commentary from the game’s director Matt Nava. It showed off The Hunter’s fluid movements and how players will use those skills to traverse the world confidently, but carefully.

You can get The Pathless right now for $39.99 on PS5, PS4 and PC. It will release in Europe on PS5 November 19th.

Two physical editions of the game are set to release later in the year on December 8th. You can find the PS5 iam8bit Exclusive Edition on the official website. That version includes a giant foldout poster, reversible cover sheet, six collectible art cards and exclusive artwork by Elaine Lee. The other physical version, the Day One Edition, is available for pre-order around the world at select retailers.

If you’re a fan of vinyl, Iam8bit is also releasing a vinyl copy of The Pathless’ original soundtrack for $39.99. You can check that out over on the website, too.

We can’t wait to jump into The Pathless today. Look out for our full review very soon.
