Revival: Recolonization Announced, Closed Alpha Sign-ups Live

Revival: Recolonization

HeroCraft have announced Revival: Recolonization, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi 4x.

As stated in the press release (via Games Press), the game is set over 1,000 years after Earth was devastated by massive catastrophes. Lead bands of survivors as you establish settlements, rediscover pre-cataclysm technology, and rebuild society as you see fit.

The game’s mechanics place an emphasis on randomized events, forcing players to adapt to the dangers of post-apocalyptic Earth. You can find the announcement trailer below.

HeroCraft is currently accepting applications for an upcoming closed alpha, which is expected to happen in Q3 2020.

You can find a rundown of the game (via the official website) here:

Set in a post-apoc version of Earth, Revival is a 4x strategy game where the world and its rules can change at key moments, creating a deep and highly replayable experience. Explore a transformed planet, negotiate or conquer new territories and bring the light of civilization to regressing human colonies in order to prepare mankind for war with a despotic entity.

Enjoy an unprecedented level of freedom

​Say ‘yes’ to meaningful replayability. Say ‘no’ to predictable and boring late game!

​Revival generates a vast possibility space for you to play around with. From sudden weather changes to zombie infestations and bans on certain weapon types – boy, you are in for a surprise.

Adapt to new conditions with the help of the nuanced edict system that allows you to terraform the planet and fine-tune the game rules on specific regions of the map. Protect your settlement from changes by building special shield constructs or by accepting the blessings of your tribe’s totem tree.

Progress through the ages

Survivors of the terrible catastrophe that almost destroyed mankind have unique traits and bonuses that affect your gameplay style. Pick the right tribe to take under your wing and help your followers evolve through four distinct epochs, all the way to futuristic settlements and breakthrough technology.

Engage in tactical combat

Command an army that is suited to your play style by gearing up troops with a variety of components, which can also be crafted. Adapt your tactics in intense turn-based battles by mixing and matching different parts, as well as smartly using destructible cover to defeat your enemies.

Explore Earth after a devastating cataclysm

Revival takes place on our own home planet whose landscape and climate have been dramatically transformed. Discover pre-cataclysm artifacts and anomalies with unexpected behaviors. Face off against wild beasts that have evolved to survive in these conditions, as well as fearsome mechanical automatons that roam the lands.

Revival: Recolonization is coming soon to Windows PC.
