I do know it is exhausting to tug your self away from the intricacies and drama of managing your settlements, however there is a wave of cool-looking colony sims headed our method you must learn about.

The colony sims coming in 2024 have loads of variation between them, whether or not you need to handle a settlement within the post-apocalypse, hold your kingdom affluent in medieval occasions, or guide a primitive tribe by the stone age. Listed below are the 5 colony sims that look actually promising coming this yr.


Developer: Lengthy Jaunt
Launch date: TBA

Technically Norland hasn’t introduced a 2024 launch, although a January early entry launch was talked about in a latest put up on Steam. I certain hope it is out quickly: it appears like an incredible mix of Crusader Kings’ medieval drama and RimWorld’s survival sandbox, which makes Norland my most-wanted colony sim of the yr. Fraser definitely had a whale of a time with it when he performed a construct just a few months in the past, so hopefully the remainder of us will not have to attend for much longer.

Ascent of Ashes

Developer: Vivid Storm Interactive
Launch date: Q1 2024

I’ve had my eye on Ascent of Ashes for some time as a result of it is being developed by the modding staff who created the Fight Prolonged mod for RimWorld. Survive raiders, alien creatures, and different risks by establishing, managing, and rising your colony within the post-apocalypse. As anticipated, the fight appears wonderful, however so does all the pieces else.

Endzone 2

Developer: Gentlymad Studios
Launch date: Q1 2024

There’s much more post-apocalyptic survival headed our method in Endzone 2. Stake a declare within the badlands, develop and shield your settlement, arrange commerce routes, and make expeditions to discover and exploit the hostile, sandstorm-blasted panorama. It appears each larger and higher than the unique Endzone.

Ages of Cataria

Developer: Third Pie Studios
Launch date: Q1 2024

Ages of Cataria appears like a sweeter, kinder, and gentler colony sim than most others as you handle a rising settlement in a colourful fantasy world. Get to know your colonists, be taught their tales, and improve their abilities with duties and minigames. Simply because it is cozy does not imply there’s not a little bit of heartbreak, although: your villagers will develop and age and finally die, to get replaced by new generations.

Primitive Society Simulator

Developer: YSH BigDove
Launch date: Q1 204

You are actually ranging from scratch in Primitive Society Simulator. Lead a small tribe as they hunt, fish, discover, and construct a rudimentary society. Tame wild animals and put them to work on farms, advance from stone instruments into the bronze age, and make sure the tribe’s youngsters have sufficient nourishment to develop stronger and smarter than their ancestors.
