Since From Dust
on the 360, we haven't seen much in the god sim genre on Xbox. Most of our time with deities is spent smashing other deities around the head with oversized weaponry (looking at you, SMITE
). Perhaps Reus
will remind us how a peaceful, tolerant god can actually get things done, as the Steam hit makes its way to consoles in the autumn.
In the game, you will be controlling four giants with various superpowers, allowing you to craft your little world of tiny human inhabitants, fostering peace and posterity (or terror and doom, if that's your thing).
The game is packed with over 100 plants, animals and minerals to produce and utilise, with a "complex system" of upgrades allowing for many play styles. You can unlock even more stuff by helping your particular strain of the human race develop as a civilization.
The game will be released on Xbox One in the autumn, in both digital and retail format.
