Microids and French developers Tower Five announced the release date for Empire of the Ants, a photorealistic real-time strategy game, during the IGN Live 2024 festival.

Empire of the Ants was officially announced last January for PC and unnamed consoles, with an additional trailer presented at GDC 2024 clarifying that the game would be released on PS5, Xbox Series X, and S. The launch was expected within the same year.

The game is set to be released on November 7th of the current year simultaneously for PC (available on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store), PS5, Xbox Series X, and S. The announcement was accompanied by a new gameplay trailer.

The below attached two-minute clip showcases new glimpses of the gameplay of Empire of the Ants, and also instructs viewers on how to protect their ant colony.

Inspired by the eponymous 1991 science fiction novel by French writer Bernard Werber, Empire of the Ants allows players to assume the role of the Ants’ Saviour, number 103,683. The player’s task is to lead the ants, bring prosperity, rebuild their home, protect their lands, build an army, acquire territories, form alliances, and hunt down enemies.

Among the features of the game are a “spectacular adventure” in a “microscopic world of epic proportions”, seasonal conditions, tactical battles with unique abilities, flexible difficulty, and Russian text translation.
