Constructor really can proudly wear the label of “a classic”. First published in 1997 for MS-DOS Personal Computers and then in 1998 on PlayStation One, it was a roaring success and presented players with a unique twist on the RTS format and a wily, no-holds-barred sense of humour.
We’re proud to announce the game’s return on PS4 with a whole load of exclusive content for you, the players.
Constructor Plus is a massive sequel that takes everything that fans of the original love and adds a whole lot more both in terms of gameplay and content.But for all of you newcomers, let’s go into the basics of what the game is first. The clue is in the name; it’s a construction simulator.
But rather than focusing on your own city and it competing purely in size and scale with others, you’ll be spending more time doing over the competition as a dodgy dealer to gain an advantage, using all the illegal tricks at your disposal.
This includes hiring hippies to populate the houses next door to your competitors (hippies party hard and will put on a rave to divert your fellow property developers’ attention) or bringing in Mr Fixit, a true shambles of a handyman that will botch every job given to him.
Once you’ve gone from small-time slumlord, catering to your fussy tenants’ every need, to big-time property developer dealing in casinos and skyscrapers, the journey doesn’t end there. You can take to the stars and head to another planet too, discovering exactly how dodgy you can be in doing over your competition on Mars and other planetary outposts.
Constructor Plus is stuffed with more to play with than ever before – there’s 65 pre-built city scenarios for you to jump into so that you don’t need to start completely from scratch and can have a challenge laid out for you, 17 worlds and new retail units, casinos, skyscrapers, story mission play modes and campaigns.
PlayStation users will have an amazing deal too – exclusively for you, five free exclusive new pre-built city scenarios will be delivered to you every two weeks after launch, for the next eight weeks.
We’re really proud of Constructor Plus and can’t wait for you to get involved. If you played the original (hello Granddad) then now is the perfect time to jump back into the wheeling and dealing of dodgy city life. If you’re a newcomer – let’s be ‘avin ya!
