Even so, these cities will need to work together to produce a fruitful relationship built on trust and communication if these cities are to ensure their survival. The kingdom is depending on their success in order for it to be rebuilt once more.

When does Laysara: Summit Kingdom release?

According to an announcement from Quite OK Games, they have yet to set an exact release date for Laysara: Summit Kingdom. As such, it will release sometime in 2022 on PC. No confirmation if the game will be launching for consoles.

What are the gameplay features for Laysara: Summit Kingdom?

As this is a strategy city-builder, Laysara: Summit Kingdom possesses unique features that make this game distinctively different from other games in its genre. One of these unique features is that you are required to construct cities along mountainsides.

This in its self creates unique sets of challenges from weather, vegetation areas, mountain sizes and plenty more for you to manage. Additionally, each mountain has its own set of resources available for you to mine, harvest and produce so no two cities are the same.

However, if you’re on the verge of depleting these natural resources, you can negotiate with the neighbouring city to create a trade route to sustain your city.

Speaking of weather changes, another unique feature you will need to adapt to is the frequency of natural disasters such as avalanches. As you may not be successful in stopping or avoiding them, however, develop structures and devise plans that will prevent them from wiping out your city or destroying all vegetation.

Once you have established relationships with cities nearby, devise and create trading routes that will ensure delivery times of resources to your city or the neighbouring city. These routes can take the form of roads, bridges, pulleys and shafts. Build and fortify these routes to keep your city thriving.

What are the PC system requirements?
