Base-defense RTS game They Are Billions heading to PS4 and Xbox One


Campaign mode coming soon to PC

They Are Billions, a colony-building steampunk strategy game about turtling to survive swarming zombies, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in July courtesy of the popular port house BlitWorks.

If you're wondering how an RTS like this might handle on a gamepad, keep in mind there's a pause-and-ponder feature, and going a step further, mouse and keyboard controls will be supported on consoles.

Meanwhile, PC developer Numantian Games is putting the final touches on the incoming story-driven campaign mode for They Are Billions, an oft-requested addition among Steam Early Access players.

That campaign The New Empire will join the PC version as a free content update on June 18 alongside a pair of Survival maps: The Caustic Lands and The Deep Forest. The former is said to be "the hardest of all the maps" in They Are Billions, while the latter is intended as a warmup for newcomers.

I appreciate that more and more traditionally PC-focused titles are finding their way to consoles this generation. If you've been waiting for They Are Billions to finish up Early Access, you're nearly there.
