Pharaoh: A New Era screenshot of a large, vibrant city

When it comes to city building games you can't go far into a conversation without bringing up one of Impressions Games' classic series like Pharaoh, Caesar, Zeus or Emperor. With highly stylized visuals and deceptively addictive gameplay, these games have managed to stand the test of time and are still some of the finest examples of the genre today.

With that in mind, I'm quite happy to say that the original Pharaoh is getting a modern remake - Pharaoh: A New Era! The new and improved version will recreate the city-building classic with all-new code, 4K graphics, improved mechanics and UI, as well as an assortment of quality of life changes to make everything play just a bit smoother.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this looks like in actual gameplay through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander, it's been quite a divisive one so far:

No release date has been given just yet, though you can expect to see Pharaoh: A New Era land onto PC in the near future. Once we get an actual date, and ideally a lengthier gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know.

Until then, you can read more about the Pharaoh remake and its development by hopping over to the Steam.
