Microids is delighted to unveil the first images for the video game Empire of the Ants, based on the Bernard Werber’s eponymous best-seller.
Developed by the French studio Tower Five with Unreal Engine 5, the video game Empire of the Ants will offer a strategic experience close to the book series. Players will dive into the universe of the ants to live an epic adventure where they will have to help a colony prosper through tactical and strategical battles, in a microscopic world of epic proportions. Exploration, strategy planning, combat skills, but most of all, setting up local wildlife alliances will be necessary in order to emerge victorious from the many challenges awaiting.
Take part in Epic Adventure: Endorse the role of a brave Ant, with a 3rd person view and explore unique abilities that can help you in battle and exploration.
A 3D Real-Time Strategic game with progressive difficulty: The game promises an intuitive experience for newcomers, with the presence of tutorials to learn the fundamentals of RTS. The game will also offer a scalable difficulty and adaptable experience for veteran players who will discover new game mechanics as well as advanced strategies and combat skills.
Explore gorgeous environments and meet the local wildlife: The game will feature a photo-realistic forest to explore. Meet, encounter and interact with other ants as well as forest dwellers through your adventure.
Photo-realistic: Unreal Engine 5 allows the developers to push the boundaries of the photo-realistic effect on the plants and wildlife.
Narrative based on the season’s rhythm: The game features a narrative that follows the rhythm of the seasons, to which environments and gameplay mechanics will adapt.
Diversity of contrast and adaptation: The game maps will evolve depending on the time of day (day, night, dawn, and twilight).
Empire of the Ants will be available in 2024 for PC and consoles.
