Old World had our resident strategy buff frothing at the mouth, in excitement I hasten to add, at a 4X that was actually doing some new things. In our review Fraser described it as “a brilliant 4X, and one that I’d actually recommend over Civilization at the moment. It feels like a genuine step forward for the genre, boasting so many inventive, smart design decisions.”

The game was released in July last year as an Epic store exclusive, and impressed us so much that it eventually scooped our Best Strategy gong for 2021. Now the exclusivity period has ended and the game’s out on Steam and GOG, alongside a 10% launch discount and new DLC that is thrown-in for free if you take the plunge in the next fortnight.
