Starbreeze to Publish New Game From Soren Johnson

The latest strategy game from Soren Johnson, 10 Crowns, was recently acquired by Starbreeze. 

Starbreeze recently announced that they’ve acquired the publishing rights to latest game from Soren Johnson, one of the leading names in the strategy genre.

If Soren’s name sounds familiar, that’s because he’s worked on a variety of hit strategy games including Civilization 3, Civilization 4, and Offworld Trading Company, among others.

When it’s released, players can expect Soren’s latest game to be “an epic-scale turn-based strategy game that lets players create the greatest dynasty in world history,” according to Starbreeze.

Meanwhile, Soren released a statement that he and his team are “going back to our game development roots to make a classic historical 4X strategy game with some important and radical innovations to the genre.”

Soren Johnson isn’t the only big name working on 10 Crowns, either. Dorian Newcomb, who served as art director on Civilization 5, is also tapped for the game.

In addition to Starbreeze’s announcement, brand new concept art was revealed for the game to help get players excited.
