Microsoft has provided its debut trailer for Everwild, a new first-party title from Rare, the studio behind Banjo-Kazooie, GoldenEye, and most recently Sea of Thieves. The new franchise is expected to deliver a full-fledged, triple-A experience under the British studio, receiving a brief teaser at its home capital via X019 in London.

Details on the elusive upcoming project remain thin, proposing a "magical, natural world" for players to explore. Executive producer, Louise O'Connor, took to the stage at X019 alongside a short trailer, promising more details to come at a later date.

"While Everwild is still early in development, we are very excited about the unique potential of the game we are creating," said Craig Duncan, Studio Head at Rare. "The Everwild team is focused on building an experience that allows for new ways to play in a natural and magical world."

"The development team, led by Executive Producer Louise O'Connor, is creating something truly original and incredibly special that aims to be more than just a new IP. Everwild will give you memorable, engaging and meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share. We cannot wait to share more with you in the future."

Microsoft hasn't detailed planned platforms or even a launch window for Everwild, seemingly in the early stages of development. However, targeting the next-generation Xbox Project Scarlett console seems likely, potentially returning at E3 2020.
