Over the course of a couple of decades, Catan has made a bit of a name for itself in the tabletop community. Now though it’s set to hit the virtual world as Dovetail Games and Asmodee Entertainment announce CATAN for Xbox and PlayStation.
Full details are still pretty thin on the ground, but Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players (and those on Series X|S and PS5 no doubt), will be excited to hear that Dovetail (they behind the recent Bassmaster Fishing 2022) and Asmodee are coming together to deliver them the ultimate CATAN videogame experience.
When it does arrive, we should expect to see the island of Catan emerging on the screen for an immersive game experience like no other. It’ll give you the chance to barter for resources, and place roads and settlements to claim single or multiplayer victory in the digital version of the world-famous award-winning tabletop game.
And as you would expect the digital tabletop version of CATAN will bring the power and functionality of games consoles and combine that with the mechanics and themes of one of the world’s greatest board games. Goes without saying, eh?
“I have been a board game enthusiast and a committed CATAN player for many years, so it’s a personal thrill for me to be able to bring this much-loved experience to the Xbox and PlayStation platforms,” said Jon Rissik, Dovetail Games CEO. “Creatively, we are working with the team at Nomad Games who bring a wealth of experience in crafting high-quality digital board game experiences. We can’t wait to be able to bring the world of CATAN to life in a way that hasn’t been seen before on digital platforms.”
“We are very excited that CATAN will be adapted for PlayStation and Xbox and are looking forward to working Dovetail and their developers at Nomad on this version,” said Benjamin Teuber, Managing Director of CATAN GmbH.
Andy Jones, Managing Director of Asmodee Entertainment said “Bringing CATAN to the two major console platforms was a top priority for us and to be working with Dovetail gives us huge confidence that this will be an amazing game for both CATAN aficionados and new players alike.”
We’ll be sure to keep you updated as to the progress of CATAN and launch on Xbox and PlayStation in the near future.
