UIG Entertainment is the Germany-based publisher behind a range of simulation games, including the recent Professional Farmer 2017
. Joining their collection later this year will be a "contemporary edition" of the classic PC title, Industry Giant 2
. Originally released in 2002, Industry Giant 2
was a popular business tycoon simulator, allowing you to live out the rags to riches dream.
Industry Giant 2 features economic booms, stock market crashes, oil crises, upswings, downturns and triumphs... This is your chance to become the greatest power in the industry. Begin the game in the year 1900 with little money, but large ambitions and through skillful decisions, you can build up an enormous empire. You make critical decisions about which products you should manufacture, where to gather the raw materials, where to sell product, and how to transport them effectively. It is your choice whether you start out as a minor fruit-growing framer with a little orchard and retire as the owner of the biggest foodstuff empire around, or end up owning a multinational conglomerate with a vast portfolio of products. Industry Giant II was a classic when it originally released, and has stood the test of time as a great gameplay experience with a host of cool features.
Anyone who is attending Gamescom 2016 will be able to get hands on with an early console preview. Industry Giant 2
will be coming to "major gaming consoles" towards the end of 2016.
