First Look: Cultures

Take a look at these new images from the final build of Xicat's whimsical real-time strategy game.


GameSpot has received a final build of Cultures, a real-time strategy game from Xicat and Funatics Development. Cultures is a civilization-building strategy game where players are in control of Viking explorers in North America. These explorers are looking for meteor fragments that appease the Viking gods and restore harmony to the homeland. While searching the surrounding areas, players encounter native inhabitants as well as other Vikings that may either be friendly or hostile. Players can assign their Vikings to a number of different jobs, such as lumberjack or sword smith, and players can build roads and assign merchants to buildings to increase the colony's productivity. In addition to the single-player campaign, Cultures also features two multiplayer modes.

Cultures is scheduled for release soon. For more on the game, take a look at our previous coverage , and stay tuned for a full review to follow shortly.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
