Double Eleven confirmed that their sci-fi colony sim, RimWorld, is coming to Xbox and PlayStation consoles on July 29th. Pre-order RimWorld Console Edition Digital Deluxe to receive the Royalty DLC and three days of early access.
RimWorld is a sci-fi colony sim driven by an intelligent AI storyteller. Generates stories by simulating psychology, ecology, gunplay, melee combat, climate, biomes, diplomacy, interpersonal relationships, art, medicine, trade, and more.
Immerse yourself in the story-driven world of RimWorld Console Edition - survive extreme weather and take on brutal raiders as you help your colonists defend their home! Manage their moods and expectations – no two play-throughs are every the same! All driven by an intelligent, AI Storyteller!
RimWorld Console Edition features include:
RIMWORLD IS A STORY GENERATOR - It’s designed to co-author tragic, twisted, and triumphant stories about imprisoned pirates, desperate colonists, starvation and survival. It works by controlling the “random” events that the world throws at you. Every thunderstorm, pirate raid, and travelling salesman is a card dealt into your story by the AI Storyteller. There are several storytellers to choose from. Randy Random does crazy stuff, Cassandra Classic goes for rising tension, and Phoebe Chillax likes to relax.
BUILD. DEFEND. EXPLORE - The game generates a whole planet from pole to equator. You choose whether to land your crash pods in a cold northern tundra, a parched desert flat, a temperate forest, or a steaming equatorial jungle. Different areas have different animals, plants, diseases, temperatures, rainfall, mineral resources, and terrain. The challenges of surviving in a disease-infested, choking jungle are very different from those in a parched desert wasteland or a frozen tundra with a two-month growing season.
ENDLESS COLONIST INTERACTION - Your colonists are not professional settlers – they’re crash-landed survivors from a passenger liner destroyed in orbit. You can end up with a nobleman, an accountant, and a housewife. You’ll acquire more colonists by capturing them in combat and turning them to your side. So your colony will always be a motley crew.
The game is available for digital pre-order and pre-download on Xbox consoles for $39.99 US.
RimWorld Console Edition launches July 29, 2022 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, & PS4/5.
