May 24, 2022 – As part of a slew of announcements, Catan Studios’ new restoration from their past, Catan Dawn of Humankind sets an October 2022 release date. The game is expected to launch with a mass-market exclusive at Target and at independent hobby retailers in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the UK on October 1, 2022.
This new version of Catan: Dawn of Humankind was originally announced on March 11th of this year. This new development not only reveals the new date, but some additional details on the title.
The first branches of the human family tree sprouted in Africa up to 300,000 years ago. Over the millennia, humans journeyed out, putting down new roots in all areas of the world, evolving, adapting, and innovating as they went.
In Dawn of Humankind, you will guide one branch of the human family to gather resources, migrate, and settle in new areas, all while advancing their technology and culture. The player who is best able to grow and develop their thriving civilization wins!
This fresh and vibrant reboot of the original game The Settlers of the Stone Age is rooted in the classic CATAN gameplay system with plenty of new game mechanisms, strategies, and adventures to discover.
For 3-4 players ages 12+, games run approximately 90 minutes.
