System 3 is proud to announce the return of the critically acclaimed ’90s classic.

20 years after its original release, Constructor will be making a return on
next-gen consoles and PC in 2017.

Development head John Twiddy, renowned programmer of The Last Ninja, Ikari Warriors, Disney’s Aladdin and the original Constructor, along with legends of the original team, Phil Thornton, Dan Malone and Joe Walker, has begun development of Constructor, a reimagining of a classic that inspired games such as The Sims and became one of the biggest games of the ’90s.

Originally launched in 1997, Constructor sold over 5 million copies worldwide, then famously launched on the original PlayStation One which was emulated on PSN as a downloadable PS One classic.

Constructor sets players as budding property tycoons, who must take on their rivals in the creation of a successful city. This doesn’t just involve the speedy building of homes and businesses, however; players must negotiate the tangled web of Undesirables, a motley collection of reprobates that can be used against them – and by them, against others.

The use of Undesirables forms one of the core gameplay mechanics. Whether employing a group of antagonistic Thugs to terrorize a neighbourhood, sending round a Hippy to squat in opponents’ empty properties, bringing in Mr Fix It to botch their gas supplies or involving the criminal underworld in your enterprises, there are many tools at your disposal to help hinder your fellow players and make their commercial lives a living hell. Facing a protection racket from the mob? Why not send along a group of maniacal Clowns to terrify your enemy into submission!

“Constructor is a game I took great joy in creating, and having the chance to delve into its universe once again has been incredible,” said John Twiddy. “A whole generation adored the original. I, along with the original collaborators, am delighted to be showcasing Constructor’s unique charm to a whole new audience.”

Constructor is planned for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, available 31st January 2017, with special pre-order limited edition boxes with selected retail partners.

    I hope this release to be GOD DAMN HARD, street wars was too easy and didn’t have another mode than that one and only “story mode”… modding capacity could make this game extremely flexible. A remake of street wars could be great too!

    I’m a fan of the two parts wanted to be in this part of the regime was strazheniya and computer fair game without cheating, and that it was possible to make the union, as in the COMMAND & CONQUER

    This is the best game i’ve seen. We need an iOS version for iPad too

  • Kharnivore2099 wrote on 11 August 2015 at 10:53

    Constructor is one of my favourite games and I’m glad it’s getting redone, it’s a great game but really did need rebalanced as the computer would cheat far too much…even in easy mode. It’s looking great though, faithful to the original with a more modern look.

    Just hope those voices will be as memorable as the original ones.

  • Rogernux wrote on 8 August 2015 at 01:28
