Empires of the Undergrowth – 1.0 Release Date Trailer | RTS Ant Colony-Builder

Empires of the Undergrowth blends RTS and base-building in an experience firmly grounded in real-world science and biology, challenging players to lead a colony of ants against the many fearsome threats of the insect world. Build intricate nests, develop pheromone-based tactics, and evolve the brood to combat escalating threats across multiple game modes. Players can also experience the multi-part campaign that’s full of mystery and at least one slightly mad scientist.

The big 1.0 update will include a range of new features, including:

  • A new savannah environment with its own creatures and hazards.
  • New ant species you can play in the campaign or custom games.
  • The final arc of the single-player campaign, featuring three new documentary missions with full voice acting and new artwork, as well as a final climactic challenge.
  • New Game Plus mode so the campaign can be played again with further upgrades and increased difficulty.
  • And many more quality-of-life tweaks and improvements.

Empires of the Undergrowth is localized from English into German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish, Ukrainian, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.

Empires of the Undergrowth is available in early access on PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store for $29.99 / £24.99 / €29.99 / ¥3,980.
