After a successful Early Access period on PC where it recently hit version 1.0
, the popular defensive real-time strategy (RTS) of They Are Billions
has finally come to consoles. Where thankfully keyboard and mouse support sits alongside the optimisation for controller input. So then, how does surviving before the arrival of a massive zombie horde translate as a couch gaming experience?
Well. Exceptionally so.
They Are Billions is at its core a take on the style of defensive RTS missions seen in titles like StarCraft or Command & Conquer, levels and missions that led to the popularity and rise of the tower defence genre. When viewed in the guise of a single mode, They Are Billions offers up a brilliant and thoughtful and tense strategic experience. One that stands out and feels almost timeless. Even if you ultimately fail to survive, the experience still feels, well, complete.
