The Story So Far
In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a genetically enhanced laboratory ape named Caesar stole an untested drug that gave his fellow apes the intelligence of their human captors. Using their new-found intelligence, natural strength and dexterity, the apes escaped their cages and made a new home away from humans in the Muir Woods redwood forests outside San Francisco.
In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar and his tribe once again encounter humans. An unexpected side effect of the process that gave the apes intelligence released the “simian flu”, a plague that has decimated mankind. Caesar chooses to work with a few, kind humans to preserve his tribe’s way of life only to be betrayed by an ape named Koba and almost killed. Realizing that humans and apes can be as bad as one another, Caesar defeats Koba and agrees to an uneasy peace between apes and humans.
In Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier, a new chapter for the apes begins. Many apes died in the Battle of San Francisco while others, fearing Caesar was dead at Koba’s hands, fled to start a new life far away from San Francisco, Koba and human soldiers. One of these new tribes was lead by Khan, who took his apes north. After many months of searching, Khan and his sons found a mountain that the tribe could call home. However, now that summer is ending, food is running out and the tribe is beginning to starve. As each day passes, food becomes scarcer and the tribe’s hunters have to venture farther away from the safety of their mountain.
Unknown to Khan and his troop of apes, nestled in the mountain valley floor, a human settlement has survived the Simian Flu apocalypse. A hundred souls live in a fortified compound, once the nucleus of a thriving town known as Millerton. Food is scarce and new mayor Jess Ross has to marshal her people as they struggle daily to make a life for Millerton. Times are hard with little communication from the outside, the townsfolk must rely on their crops and cattle to survive the upcoming winter.
Soon the apes will come face to face with humans for the first time in their new home. The choices you make as leader will affect both groups as well as how you are perceived by your friends and your foes. Your decisions have consequences for the survival of ape and human alike.
Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier will be available digitally this fall for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
