Ancestors Legacy, so far the most complex and successful title by developer Destructive Creations, releases today on PS4 and Xbox One, retailing at the price of EUR 34.99 / USD 39.99, with a 15% launch discount on PlayStationStore US. Later this year, a physical version of the game for PlayStation®4 including bonus material will be made available in selected retail stores for EUR 39.99, as will the PS4 digital and retail versions for Japan and Asia.
Confident in the title’s quality, supported by numerous positive reviews and a 77% average rating on both Metacritic and Steam, Destructive Creations are looking forward to seeing gamers enjoy the medieval atmosphere and harsh battles of Ancestors Legacy on consoles. With porting support from Slipgate Ironworks, Ancestors Legacy is bringing all its main features to consoles: an enticing history-inspired storyline, tactical squad-based battles, day-night cycle, action camera, pleasing visuals on a par with the PC version, and the extra hours of gameplay in skirmish and online multiplayer modes.
The addition of a first-rate RTS to non-PC platforms, where such titles are scarce, has been highly anticipated by many gamers and Ancestors Legacy will not let them down in terms of content, quality and accessibility via the controller, the use of which has been prepared and tested for right from the very beginning. Following a challenging development for PC, additional free updates and a paid DLC, the porting of the game was no easy task, and having finally brought it to the remaining platforms is a gratification for the whole team. The cooperation with Slipgate Ironworks on the PS4 build cannot be stressed enough.
