Video game Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier bridges Dawn and War

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier

At the end of DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, what remained of the Army was starting to move in on the colony of super-intelligent apes led by the ape called Caesar (played by Andy Serkis in a motion-capture performance). When WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES begins, it's already two years into the battle between the apes and the military. To bridge the gap between the two films, Serkis's company The Imaginarium Studios has teamed up with FoxNext Games to create the video game PLANET OF THE APES: LAST FRONTIER.


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. Set between Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes films, Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier 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.

I thought it was a good idea to have WAR pick up a couple years into the fight, and a video game set between the films is a very clever way to fill in the blanks of what happened. I'm not a gamer, but projects like this make me want to be.

If you are a gamer, you'll be able to play PLANET OF THE APES: LAST FRONTIER on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall.
