Cyberpunk PC RTS, Re-Legion, Launches on Steam

PRAGUE, January 31, 2019 - "Their faith is weak, so are their souls." - The Prophet Elion. 1C Entertainment, a global PC and console games publisher, today announced the launch of the cyberpunk strategy game, Re-Legion, on PC via Steam and GOG for US$19.99 (EURO 17.99). To celebrate the coming of the prophet Elion, 1C is offering players a 10% discount through the first two weeks of launch ($17.99 / EURO 16.19). The game can be viewed in a new launch trailer released today.

Re-Legion is a top-down isometric RTS where players take on the role of a prophet in an oppressive technocratic society. In the role of the prophet Elion, a strong leader who promises to rid the world of misery, players can define their own belief system and convert citizens into cultists. As Elion increases his power, he turns non-believers into his "Followers"-introducing a very different resource management system where the conversion of ordinary people drives the player's rise to dominance.

"Re-Legion is a unique strategy game that transports players to a dystopian world where their decisions matter, both in a tactical and moral sense," said Nikolay Baryshnikov, CEO of 1C Entertainment. "As Elion, players can achieve power through many methods, including conversion, hacking, combat, upgrades, and special abilities-the choice of how humane or brutal the approach is yours to make."

Re-Legion has attracted attention with its unique cyberpunk premise, fresh mechanics for creating units by converting ordinary people, and dark, neon-tinted art style. As the game unfolds, players will convert more followers-essentially, their units-and the cult will expand its possibilities by obtaining "CryptoCredits" to enable upgrades while cultists increase their "Faith", a secondary resource, in order to gain and use special abilities. Cultists can also use hacking to expand and control territories and convert other citizens-or fight enemy units and non-believers. As Elion, players can also choose different Dogmas for their cult, taking varied approaches through different playthroughs.

Game Features

  • Unique RTS mechanic where new units are acquired by converting citizens into followers
  • Vivid futuristic cyberpunk visuals and dark atmosphere
  • Mature story that offers profound background and moral choices
  • Build your own cult using an original Dogmas system that ensures replayability
  • Special territory control mechanics incorporating hacking techniques

The Re-Legion official soundtrack with 15 tracks is available for $3.99, and a digital artbook is also available for $2.99. Fans can also purchase the Re-Legion Deluxe Edition bundling together the game, the OST, and art book for $22.65. The launch window 10% discount will be available for all options.
