Team17 Digital and Covenant.dev have today announced that dark fantasy strategy game Gord will launch this summer and arrive on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S, alongside PC via the previously confirmed Steam version.
Created by a team that includes former Frostpunk and The Witcher 3 developers, Gord will see players command the Tribe of the Dawn and embrace the ethical complexity of leadership as they shepherd their community and protect them from invaders and monstrous beasts.
