One of the legends of 4X game design is turning his attention back to our favorite genre. Soren Johnson, lead designer of the amazing Civilization IV, and his studio Mohawk Games recently announced their new historical 4X title, 10 Crowns.
“Everyone here at Mohawk is very excited to work with Starbreeze on 10 Crowns, going back to our game development roots to make a classic historical 4X strategy game with some important and radical innovations to the genre. I look forward to sharing more about the design with the strategy game community and involving them in development as early as possible,” said Soren Johnson at Mohawk Games.
Even though 10 Crowns is likely a few years away from release, the fact that Soren Johnson is designing an independent turn-based historical 4X game is enough to get us excited. His past work on Civ4 and Offworld Trading Company has been well received at eXplorminate.
As always, we’ll be working hard to keep our community up to date. Stay tuned to eXplorminate for 10 Crowns updates!
