Petroglyph Games has teamed up with publishers SOEDESCO in order to secure 8-Bit Armies a console release. Both physical and digital versions of the real-time strategy game will be available to purchase sometime this summer, bundled with the ‘Guardians Campaign’ DLC.
Since its inception in 2003, Petroglyph has given us Star Wars: Empire at War, Grey Goo and Universe at War. The team is highly versed in AAA quality titles, boasting many veterans from Westwood Studios.
Their latest RTS is a nod to the early Command & Conquer games. Its accessible mechanics and fun graphics make it a great introduction into the genre for new players whilst being a satisfying return to form for RTS stalwarts. And friendly controller mapping means it has never been easier to build your bases and command your army.

We have to admit, there is something about nostalgic-style releases that makes them hard to ignore. And we’re always on the look out for something we can jump in and out of when the big budgets start to take their toll.
