Driftland: The Magic Revival, Star Drifters’ highly acclaimed game combining elements of RTS, 4X strategy and god sim, is coming to new platforms. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in Q1 2020. MacOS version to be released on Friday.
“We are very happy that Driftland will be available to console players, especially since many of them are strategy games fans”, says Michał Sokolski, game designer and co-founder of Star Drifters, the studio behind Driftland. “We will do our best to make rebuilding of the magical kingdom as comfortable and enjoyable as it is for PC gamers. The already existing command system and dynamic time control with active pause will certainly help here”.
The console version of Driftland will combine what was appreciated by gamers and critics with controls that take into account the peculiarity of controllers. The cursor known from the PC version will be replaced by an active, contextual field in the middle of the screen, which will allow the player to cast spells and construct buildings. In Driftland, the player does not have direct control over his units, but gives them orders — which on consoles will additionally avoid tedious micro-management of subordinates. The PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions of Driftland: The Magic Revival are created in collaboration with SimFabric. Their launch is scheduled for Q1 2020.
On Friday, September 20th, the macOS version of Driftland: The Magic Revival will become available on Steam! Thanks to multiplayer cross-play, Apple fans will be able to face their friends who are using Windows or Linux (Proton beta).
