22Cans announced that GODUS, which successfully raised over £500k ($815909.37) with its Kickstarter campaign in December 2012 will hit Steam Early Access for $19.99 on September 13th. In addition to this news a new trailer was released offering an insight into what the beta will entail.
GODUS is a spiritual successor to Populous that puts players in the role of God in charge of their own world filled with settlers. As you create every aspect of your unique utopia, your civilization will blossom across your land and offer you their worship. The more followers believe in you, the more powerful you will become. However, there will be other gods and civilizations who reign outside your world that you may challenge in epic multiplayer battles that involve hundreds of followers fighting in your name whilst you cast devastating god powers from the skies above. As you conquer more lands, your powers will grow allowing your civilization to advance.
GODUS is set to release in 2014 for Microsoft Windows, OS X, iOS, Linux and Android.
