The Dawn of a New Era: Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt Announced

Historical City Builder to Release on February 26th 2019

January 28th 2019: Oyez, oyez, oyez! Fans of city building games all over the world! We know you have been eagerly waiting for February 26th, to start building your prospering town that will become a mighty metropolis one day. And rejoice: The release date of Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt is rock-solid on February 26th 2019. More great news for all loyal Townsmenfolk: When the new Kingdom comes, it will appear completely free in your great library of noble video games, if you own the original 2016’s Townsmen.

This improved and remastered version from the iconic Townsmen-Series holds a shipload of content in the cargo room: 24 maps for the sandbox mode stand next to 26 scenarios, so it’s up to you if you pick your own tale and turn a barren pile of grass into a gigantic city or face a predefined challenge. A new, 6-mission-long tutorial will make your first steps as a mayor as smooth as fine silk from the tailor’s shop. Research over 70 technologies and construct more than 150 buildings and objects.

Plan your city wisely: Your Townies & Townettes need a place to live, to work – and to relax, to grab some food. Having a market place close to their workplace will guarantee a short walk and also a realistic looking town. And speaking of placement, make sure to have a fire tower or the infirmary around, when one of the new catastrophes strikes and your city is hit by a large fire or the plague. 

Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt will be available on February 26th 2019 for PC. The price is 19,99 € / 19,99 $ / 16,99 £ but the game will be added free of charge to all existing owners of the original 2016’s Townsmen. Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt is developed and published by HandyGames, a THQ Nordic company.
