Ubisoft looks set to announce a new game today, via an arcane YouTube livestream.
The stream started around 5AM New Zealand time, showing a cave painting of a warrior with a spear and bow.
Since then, the camera has slowly zoomed out to reveal more figures, animals, and environments, accompanied by the sounds of droning music, flickering fire, water droplets, animal noises, and distant voices.
It is unclear what the stream is building towards, but speculation on Twitter from its 12,000 viewers suggests it could be a new Far Cry instalment or an entirely new IP.
Ubisoft's YouTube description bears the tagline "Survival is timeless," though the same does not apply to the stream itself, which has been going on for four hours as of this publication.
