Kalypso Media and Somasim have announced that after laying down its foundations on PC and mobile platforms, Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition will release in fall 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
As well as bringing all the content from the original Project Highrise base game, the Architect’s Edition also packs in the Las Vegas DLC as well as the content packs Miami Malls, Tokyo Towers, London Life and the brand new Brilliant Berlin in one edition. As an architect and developer, it’s your job to build world-famous skyscrapers that will be the envy of the entire city, masterpieces of art and engineering. It becomes a complex machine that needs your steady hand to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
From the moment you break ground, every decision rests with you. As the architect, you must coordinate the construction of everything. As the building owner, you must keep your tenants happy and make sure they pay rent on time. As a savvy developer, you must keep an eye on the bottom line and invest in the future. Succeed and you will reap the rewards of a prestigious address where everyone will clamor to live and work. Fail and you will watch tenants leave in disgust, taking their business elsewhere and leaving your reputation in tatters.
Creating gleaming commercial towers for titans of trade looking for the perfect downtown office, building residential blocks of apartments that cater to those seeking a home in the sky, keeping business travelers and tourists happy in soaring hotel towers and much more.
This can all be achieved within the 29 scenarios of campaign mode and in the open sandbox mode.
Developers Somasim will be showing the first console build of Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition on the Kalypso Media booth at E3. To schedule an appointment, contact their UK PR team.
