Big Pharma has been rolling around the PC scene since way back in 2015, gathering up some mighty fine reviews and positive reaction over the years. Now though the PC’s best-selling pharmaceutical management sim – and let’s be honest, there can’t be many of them – is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, with the team at Klabater confirming the exact release date alongside full details and a nifty teaser trailer.
The ideal choice for gamers who are looking for an experience that provides deep management and strategy mechanics, Big Pharma should also be found coming to console with a rather smooth control system in place, with Klabater working hard on ensuring the console experience is just as high as that found on PC.
But what exactly does Big Pharma deliver? Well, it’s a game that is part business sim, part logistics puzzle, and whilst it’s super simple to work away in the lab perfecting new formulas, converting your finding of the ‘sciency stuff’ into cold hard cash means bringing an engineering and business mind to the problem. The issue is, factory space is expensive, and those fancy new agglomerators and centrifuges don’t always slot nicely together.
This means that Big Pharma on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch will see you attempting to halt disease, ease suffering, and cure the sick – all while earning a tidy little profit. Will you have what it takes to succeed in that quest?
“After a very successful launch of our medieval tavern sim, Crossroads Inn, we now travel back to the future and focus on the development of a modern pharmaceutical conglomerate. We are sure that console players will enjoy this combination of deep business sim and logistical puzzles, with the simplicity of a console’s interface. We put a lot of effort to adapt PC controls and steering to consoles, and the game now plays perfectly with a gamepad.” – Lukasz Mach, Klabater CMO.
Features of Big Pharma include:
- 35 business-busting challenges spread out across 7 unique scenarios.
- Custom game mode.
- Freebuild mode.
- Tons of new ingredients and recipes to discover.
- Hi-tech machines to help you refine the next generation of world-changing drugs.
- Wide range of business models to fit your Pharmaceutical Conglomerate.
Big Pharma will hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on December 5th 2019, with a £24.99/$29.99/29.99EUR price tag attached. We’ll be sure to let you know when it arrives for real on the Xbox Store, and should quite possibly have a little review piece up covering the ins and outs of Big Pharma on Xbox One too, but in the meantime, you can pre-order it if you so wish. Make sure you keep an eye out for both. In the meantime, watch the trailer from earlier this year below, and let us know your thoughts.
