BAFTA nominated city builder, anyone? Airborne Kingdom comes to console with some serious acclaim.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox, Switch and PlayStation, as well as on PC where it’s been living for a little while, Airborne Kingdom from The Wandering Band and their publishing team of Freedom Games want to give you the opportunity to head to the skies and embrace the city building experience that is up there.
Priced at £20.99, Airborne Kingdom looks stunning – in fact, our full review of the game mentions that delicate artwork – but should you be able to get your eyes moving away from that glory for just one minute, will also discover that the mechanics which hold it all together are just as decent.
Moving from PC to console isn’t always a smooth process, but Airborne Kingdom nails what is required, giving you the opportunity to head skyward and build your civilization in and amongst the clouds. The usual city-building premises applu, as you go about gathering resources and then using those to expand and upgrade what you have in front of you. And this one is no different, playing out across three areas and enjoying no less than 12 distinct cities.
Building things out into a single kingdom is the name of Airborne Kingdom – quite literally in fact – and so if you feel the need to take on a new building role, or are looking to embrace some new ideas and strategies, it’s probably worth giving this one a shot.
In fact, we think it’s more than worth that and urge you to head to your favourite digital store immediately. You’ll find Airborne Kingdom playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via an Xbox Store download. Alternatively, it’s on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Airborne Kingdom is a stunning airborne city building and management game. Embark on a journey as a small kingdom to expand your population, researching new technologies and buildings, and forging alliances with terrestrial kingdoms. Each journey will begin on a unique procedurally-generated map encompassing three distinct areas with 12 cities to discover. Soar through the skies as you complete quests, gather and manage resources, and work to keep your kingdom balanced both literally and in service of the needs and desires of your workers. Ultimately it is up to you to unite all of the kingdoms together into a single alliance guided along by the legendary Airborne Kingdom.
