Godlike Strategy Game Reus Heads to Consoles in Q3 2016

Dutch publisher SOEDESCO is bringing Abbey Games’ godlike strategy game, Reus, to consoles.

The giant-sized real-time strategy game will launch sometime in Q3 in both North America and Europe, across Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

While the game will release via the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live stores in North America, Europeans are getting a retail release as well.

Here’s a breakdown of the game, via SOEDESCO:

Create seas, deserts, forests, and swamps. Combine powers to make plants, trees, animals and mines. As the world takes shape, tiny humans will start to settle and create villages. It’s up to you to determine how well your giants will take care of the humans. Will you help them grow and develop? Even spoil them wherever you can? Every aspect of a planet will create different challenges and opportunities for the inhabitants of your world, so try out lots of combinations to see what works and what doesn’t.

You start out with the 30 minute mode called “Era,” in which you have to get your planet as evolved as possible within the time limit. While playing, you will unlock several developments and power-ups if you do well. With those, you will be able to evolve the world further and unlock longer “Era” modes (60 minutes and 120 minutes). If that sounds overwhelming, you can always try the beginner and freeplay modes. In the latter, you can play as long as you want, but you will not earn any developments. Perfect for stress-free playing and practice!

You can befriend the humans in villages around the world, but be careful — they can get a bit spoiled and attack you. If you are on good terms with different villages, they can send ambassadors to travel on the backs of your giants (don’t worry, they are not heavy!), which will let you unlock new abilities. A combination of different ambassadors will give you different powers to use, so be sure to befriend all of your villagers!

Key Features:

  • Control four mighty giants, each with their unique abilities
  • Terra-form the planet to your will, experiment with different terrain types
  • A complex system of upgrades and synergies allows for endless styles of play
  • Observe humanity, let your giants praise or punish them
  • Enjoy an interesting art style and a strong soundtrack
  • Enrich the planet with over 100 plants, animals and minerals
  • Unlock new content by helping humanity achieve numerous developments
