“Empire of the Ants is undoubtedly one of the best-looking RTS games I’ve played in years, and one of the most exciting new prospects for 2024”

“Empire of the Ants impressed me with its focus on exploring a strange, small world and the Ant community that resides in it.”

“Seeing — and playing — is believing here. Empire of the Ants is a pure design flex in every aspect. It’s a visual spectacle that makes the most of Unreal Engine 5 and its shaping up to be a surprisingly approachable strategy game that fixes the genre’s gamepad struggles.”
