Fans of the internationally celebrated strategy board game can now play with friends around the couch, online or solo with three different game modes.
CATAN - Console Edition is out today, giving fans of the hugely popular board game a means to play with friends online, or to gather them round the couch and in front of a board that truly comes to life!
The official console version, available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X/S consoles from today, has been in development courtesy of Dovetail Games, with help from their friends over at Nomad Games. In addition to the two multiplayer game modes, players can take to trading and building with dynamic AI in single player mode, using different tactics and strategies to face characters based on the wider CATAN lore.
For those that enjoy CATAN with friends and family, the ability to play Console Edition around the couch still enables those all-too-familiar discussions on tactics. “Who wants to trade some Sheep?” and “Where shall I place the Robber?” can still take place in front of an animated board teeming with life. Resource cards remain secret however, with the inclusion of a Card Companion on smartphone that doesn’t require an App to be installed.
Online play gives those too far apart to play together in the living room to still enjoy CATAN with friends or strangers and with Cross-play an included feature, it doesn’t matter whether players are on Xbox or PlayStation.
There’s a host of challenges to complete in a game where no two boards are the same and players can customise their experience with Dice Skins and Hex Frames showcasing their skills to other players.
Those that follow the CATAN World Championship can also play on five game boards featured in last year’s World, European and American competitions by purchasing the Deluxe Edition of the game.
