Ancestors Legacy, having been developed for use with a controller right from the start, is finally reaching the remaining platforms it was destined for with the release of PS4 and Xbox One versions. Tested with a gamepad for over two years now, the user interface and key mapping are well optimized to bring a great gaming experience even without the more traditional RTS peripherals. Aiming to fill the RTS-games gap on console platforms, Ancestors Legacy is bringing all its main weapons: enticing history-inspired storyline, tactical squad-based battles, day-night cycle, action camera, pleasing visuals on a par with the PC version, and the extra hours of gameplay in skirmish and online multiplayer modes. But above all that, Ancestors Legacy now takes the harsh battles and blood-soaked battlefields from PC screens straight to living room TVs.
Ancestors Legacy has been on the market for over a year now and has received many expressions of appreciation from professionals in the gaming industry, though the vast majority have been from customers and fans. The high ratings it has received (77% user ratings on Steam and a 77% Metascore on Metacritic) reflect the quality of the game and the developer’s dedication to polish and their desire to expand the title, of which three DLCs and numerous updates are proof. The rigorous work put into finalizing all the extra content held back the console releases further than initially projected, so the development team had to find a reliable partner to ensure a reasonable timeline for delivering the console builds to fans who were eagerly awaiting them. It was the close and productive cooperation between Destructive Creations and the team from Slipgate Ironworks that made the introduction of the game to PlayStation®4 possible.
