Here is an overview of the game, via Annapurna Interactive:
A first-person survival horror adventure.
The Lost Wild is an immersive and cinematic dinosaur game that captures the reverence and terror of nature’s most magnificent beasts. Come face-to-face with dinosaurs that behave like wild animals, not monsters.
Explore a prehistoric wilderness where you’re squarely in the center of the food chain. Keep your head down, stay alert, and evade. If all else fails, run or try to intimidate using non-lethal weaponry, resulting in intense cat and mouse-style gameplay.
- Explore – Discover abandoned facilities nestled in a lush wilderness teeming with prehistoric life. Scavenge and acquire useful items to improve your chances of survival, but become subject to ever-increasing dangers the deeper you explore. Unravel the mystery at the heart of the island.
- Evade – Move stealthily and elude predators hunting you down. Create distractions and use your environment to your advantage. Make use of items you’ve discovered to give yourself options in each encounter. Outmaneuver, distract, run, and if all else fails, hide.
- Intimidate – Hold your ground and don’t let them sense your fear. Temporarily scare off deadly predators using a combination of fire and non-lethal weaponry. Dinosaurs in The Lost Wild are curious and adaptive by nature, but may retreat when startled or intimidated. Carefully observe their behavior and you may just find a way to overcome them.
- Story – You are stranded in a violent primal world. Your survival depends on mastering its rhythms and anticipating its dangers. A mysterious voice on the radio seems to offer a glimmer of hope. With their help, make your way through the facilities and piece together the story of how this came to be.
