Ara: History Untold is a 4X turn-based strategy game by Oxide Interactive. The team was founded by some former employees of Firaxis Games, responsible for the bestselling Civilization series. The developers have previously co-created Ashes of the Singularity and the Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation expansion, as well as proprietary technology used in the Star Swarm tech demo.

Mechanics

Ara: History Untold is a top-down game. The player leads their chosen nation, needing to lead it to a bright future through different ages. We can play as a historical figure, like Safona, Nefertiti or George Washington, or create our own custom leader.

Our main tasks are to discover and capture new territories while acquiring valuable resources. The latter are needed to build structures granting new abilities and strategic bonuses, letting us grow technologically, unlocking new goods, resources and upgrades. We must also take care of art, culture and establish relationships with our neighbors, trading or entering alliances. In case diplomacy fails, we need a powerful army to field. Though the scale of the game is huge, we mustn't forget about individual citizens, all of which have unique personalities and stories.

The game doesn't feature predetermined victory paths, with it being up to us how we'll dominate other nations. Together with procedurally generated maps and challenges, this makes each playthrough different than the last. Speaking of maps - we'll get to conquer tropical jungles, vast deserts, beautiful valleys and towering mountains.

Technical aspects

Ara: History Untold runs on the studio's proprietary Nitrous Engine. Its graphical capabilities are rather impressive, making the maps extremely detailed.
