Raw Fury has announced that Kingdom Eighties, the next standalone game in the award-winning micro-strategy series previously revealed for PC, will also launch later this year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. The news was unveiled at The MIX Direct Spring 2023 Online Showcase with a new gameplay teaser exploring the levels of Kingdom Eighties, which will take the franchise to urban settings for the first time. Raw Fury is currently booking press appointments for Kingdom Eighties at this week’s Game Developers Conference. Kingdom franchise creative director Gordon Van Dyke will be on hand to showcase an exclusive overview of the game’s second level.
Kingdom Eighties is a love letter to the nostalgic days of summer camps, riding bikes, and sitting around in your pajamas on a Saturday morning in front of the TV. You play as the Leader, a young camp counselor who must protect the town from the relentless attacks of the mysterious Greed. The neighborhood kids will be at your side, and you’ll also find some new friends along the way: The Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz will lend you their skills and support in battle.
- A Kingdom Game for All: Kingdom Eighties adds a new storytelling approach that builds on the series’ well-known mechanics. Recruit neighborhood kids, assign them roles as builders or soldiers, and expand your territory while uncovering the secrets of your family lineage, the Greed, and the Crown of Creation.
- Stronger Together: You don’t have to ride alone in this story of four unlikely heroes and their friendship. The Champ, the Tinkerer and the Wiz will join your band and offer a variety of strategies to discover with their unique abilities.
- Hit the Streets in Style: Travel to new locations never before seen in a Kingdom game, crafted with the series’ distinctive pixel-art magic. Find fresh wheels at the skateboard park, visit the shops on Main Street, and free the New Lands Mall from the Greed.
Kingdom Eighties is available to wishlist now on Steam. For more information, visit the game’s official website.
