Successors of Cities Skylines – The Best Upcoming City-building Games

Building cities is a complicated process – all fans of Cities Skylines know it. In this article, we examine the most promising city builders to come in 2020 and '21.

Builders Of Egypt

BUILDERS OF EGYPT IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Developer: Strategy Labs
  2. Release date: 2020
  3. In one sentence: the life of a provincial governor in Ancient Egypt.

Builders of Egypt takes place in the same era as Nebuchadnezzar, the only difference is the river. As the name suggests, this time we will have the opportunity to build a state in Ancient Egypt. The ambition of the creators is high, as they set out to present the history from the birth of the Old Kingdom to the death of Cleopatra.

DEVELOPERS OF BUILDERS OF EGYPT ABOUT THEIR GAME:

Builders Of Egypt is a game in which fans of old bestsellers from years ago, such as Pharaoh, Cleopatra or Zeus, will find their place. Long-built pyramids and other monuments, dozens of different buildings to be built and a historical and long campaign in which you follow the incredibly interesting and difficult history of Ancient Egypt - all this will be waiting for you in the game. We are completely open to feedback from our players, so we regularly post updates to which we make changes submitted by our community. That's why we're sure we're creating the best game in the genre.  Join us today!

While inspirations with Pharaoh are obvious, the game will offer fully three-dimensional graphics. The core of gameplay will remain classic and focus on planning and developing areas of the city, so that it becomes an efficiently functioning organism. However, this is not the end of the story, as the game also has political, cultural and even military aspects. It is difficult for us to estimate how extensive these elements will be, but the announcements are very optimistic.

We can be sure, however, that we will be able to order the construction of the pyramids in our honor and watch the process of their formation. The only question is whether this is enough to make Builders of Egypt surpass their competition from Babylon.

BUILDERS OF EGYPT FOR FREE

The game's creator announced recently that Builders of Egypt: Prologue will be delivered completely free on Steam and GOG. As the name suggests, this version will contain the first mission; it will be a demo that will let you get to know the mechanics of the game, or simply check if your computer meets the system requirements. The creators promise that the Builders of Egypt: Prologue will become available soon!
