What's that? Another Xbox first-party game confirmed for 2024? Oh, go on then!

This one's a little bit different admittedly, as strategy game Ara: History Untold is launching exclusively on PC when it arrives on September 24, 2024 - with the Xbox console release set to take place at some point in the future.

Ara's release date was announced as part of an Xbox Games Showcase Deep Dive earlier today, during which we saw a selection of gameplay footage. You can check it out in the video above which is timestamped for the Ara section.

If you'd rather read up on the game, the official Xbox website has just put up a large preview highlighting what you can expect from Ara this September, and we'll also throw some more information and screenshots down below.

"Build a nation and lead your people throughout history to the pinnacles of human achievement as you explore new lands, develop arts and culture, conduct diplomacy, and go head-to-head with your rivals to prove you are the greatest ruler ever known. It's Your World Now."

"Ara: History Untold is an evolution in historical grand strategy, featuring beloved classic PC strategy mechanics alongside innovative gameplay like a national crafting economy, true simultaneous turn resolution, a non-linear technology tree, and cloud-backed synchronous/asynchronous multiplayer - all with an expansive and vibrant presentation where you can zoom out from surveying the very edges of your empire all the way down to your citizens living their daily lives. In Ara, there are no pre-set paths to victory, leading to endless possibilities. Your choices will define the world you create, your experience, and your legacy."
