Jon Shafer, lead designer of Sid Meier’s Civilization V, revealed this afternoon that he's working with Conifer Games to develop a new 4X turn-based historical empire builder for the PC called Jon Shafer’s At the Gates.
Jon Shafer’s At the Gates is set in the dark, brutal days of late antiquity. The Roman Empire is collapsing and the end of the world seems to be at hand. As civilization itself crumbles, you lead a fledgling barbarian kingdom which seeks to fill this vacuum of power and establish itself as the new master of Europe.
Due for release in Q1 2014, Jon Shafer’s At the Gates will be released exclusively for the PC.
