Previously launched for PC back in April 2019, a real-time strategy and god game Driftland: The Magic Revival is coming for a for console release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch, as announced by developer Star Drifters with their collaboration with SimFabric.
“We are very happy that Driftland will be available to console players, especially since many of them are strategy games fans, We will do our best to make rebuilding of the magical kingdom as comfortable and enjoyable as it is for PC gamers. The already existing command system and dynamic time control with active pause will certainly help here.”
Co-founder and game designer Michal Sokolski
From casting spells to buildings, the console version will replace it with an active contextual field in the middle of the screen instead of a cursor for PC version. While players provide orders to units replacing it’s “tedious micro-management” of directly controlling over them.

The aftermath of a devastating war between ancient mages leaves the lands shattered but left afloat and bound by a powerful spell in a planet of Driftland.
With many dark ages passed, a new hope glimpsed once more in the form of a new source of magic but at a price of new dormant conflicts resurfaced once again.
