God-Sim Game Reus announced for PS4 and Xbox One

Abbey Games’ former PC exclusive god-sim game Reus is set to come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Coming in Q3 2016, Reus will be available both physically and digitally when it releases. What is Reus all about? Here’s an official description of the game from SOEDESCO Publishing PR Manager, Esther Kuijper:  

“Create seas, deserts, forests, and swamps. Combine powers to make plants, trees, animals and mines. As the world takes shape, tiny humans will start to settle and create villages. It’s up to you to determine how well your giants will take care of the humans. Will you help them grow and develop? Even spoil them wherever you can? Every aspect of a planet will create different challenges and opportunities for the inhabitants of your world, so try out lots of combinations to see what works and what doesn’t.”

Upon release on May 16, 2013 Reus garnered a 75 on Metacritic.

My Opinion:

This is an easy day-one purchase for me. The god-sim genre is one of my personal favorites in video games. Unfortunately, it’s a genre that rarely ever graces consoles. Reus is one of the best god-sim games (which isn’t saying much) in the last few years, and I’m more than ready to embrace my inner evil god this fall.
