The game will exclusively be released on PC platforms; Steam, Microsoft Store, PC Game Pass on September 24th. The announcement took place during a recent episode of the official Xbox podcast (attached below).

Similar to the Civilization series, Ara: History Untold invites players to lead their nation through centuries of progress. However, several unique features distinguish this project from its genre counterparts.

Ara: History Untold fuses traditional mechanics with an absence of conventional victory conditions – Prestige points instead, a non-linear technology tree and the simultaneous turn for all countries with games divided into acts.
