The Suzerain release date has been announced by Fellow Traveller, promising to bring Torpor Games' inaugural commercial title to Steam before the end of 2020.
In Suzerain, players take on the role of newly-elected President Anton Rayne in the fictional country of Sordland. Sordland is recovering from a 20-year dictatorship and the fate of the nation rests on a knife's edge — can you lead the country to prosperity or will your efforts be doomed?
Get a feel for this game's vibe by checking out the Suzerain release date trailer:
First announced earlier this year, Suzerain will feature a 200,000-word story with branching paths, but that's just part of the appeal. Players will have some tough choices to make, effectively helping to rewrite the nation's Constitution at times. In some cases, the player will have to make critical decisions.
Just like real politics, nothing you do will make everyone happy. Your cabinet will advise you on your options, but it's up to the player to ultimately make a decision. Some sacrifices will inevitably have to be made, whether it be economic prospects, civil rights, or the love and wellbeing of your own family.
When is the Suzerain Release Date?
The Suzerain release date will be December 4, 2020. The game will be launching for PC and Mac via Steam; no price has been announced just yet.
If political drama is your kind of thing, then this might just be the game for you. You don't have to go in blind, though — you can play the Suzerain demo on Steam to get a feel for what the full game will be like. Otherwise, you can add Suzerain to your wishlist on Steam while you wait for it to come out next month.
