Even though CATAN – Console Edition hasn’t quite met the ‘official’ street date, you can get playing on Xbox and PlayStation right now, making the most of the crossplay it brings. 

Due to officially launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, with crossplay support in house, on February 28th 2023, Dovetail Games and their friends at Nomad Games are breaking the rules, delivering the full CATAN – Console Edition to players right now. 

Yep, by pre-ordering CATAN – Console Edition on Xbox or PlayStation, you can be playing the game right now, trading, building and settling as you go. And whilst that whole ‘pre-order’ thing may put many off, in reality you just need to go and purchase the game in the usual manner in order to get involved. 

The official video game version of the acclaimed board game, CATAN – Console Edition on Xbox and PlayStation brings forth single player elements, the usual multiplayer side of things you would expect, plus crossplay to ensure that the matches keep flowing no matter what edition you are playing on. 

We don’t think we need to go too in-depth as to what and how CATAN brings, it’s a game that pretty much anyone and everyone has played at some time or another, but this one sees the usual tiles come to life, as you look to grow settlements and take charge of the board. With 4-player support for local players and similar across the online scenes, CATAN in video game form could well best the board game options. That is no more true than if you put the key features at the fore of your mind… 

  • A board that comes to life – See each tile come to life as you grow your settlements and take over the board. Gather ore from towering mountains, collect wool from bustling pastures, or harvest lumber from thriving forests. No two games are the same, with variables boards each game will feel, look, and play different!
  • Play locally with friends – You can now play with up to 4 friends locally! Using your smart phone, connect to the game to track your cards without your friends seeing what’s in your hand.
  • Game Modes & Rewards – Compete in intense multiplayer games as you put your strategies to the test against other Catanians from around the world with online cross-play. Face the dynamic AI in single player who each have their own goals and unique play style for you to learn. Improve your skills and complete a variety of challenges throughout the seasons to unlock exciting in-game rewards.

Pre-ordering CATAN – Console Edition today will see you gifted a new Hex Frame and Dice Skin, whilst those plumping for the Deluxe Edition of the game (£19.99) will also provide access to five game boards from previous World, European and American competitions. 

We’re on review duty and will be sure to let you know how CATAN – Console Edition plays on Xbox, but for now, hit up the Xbox Store and take home either that Deluxe Edition or the Standard version right now. It’s playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. PlayStation players will find their store similarly capable. 

UpdateOur full review of CATAN – Console Edition is live.

Game Description:

Play the official video game of CATAN on Console! Acquire resources, master new strategies, and build your settlements across a board that comes to life. Challenge friends in your living room or play against smart & dynamic AI to become the winning Catanian, then take these skills online with full cross-play compatibility! Charmed by opportunity and the promise of faraway riches, you and a collection of likeminded adventurers abandon your homeland and livelihoods to discover new lands. After a long and arduous journey, fraught with danger and difficulty, you arrive at the shores of a lush land, untouched by humanity, and abundant in resources. But you are not the first to set foot on this new island, there are others who are looking to thrive – and survive. Welcome to CATAN!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
