Sci-fi city builder Ixion gets a much-needed difficulty update

I was impressed by the atmosphere and detail of last year’s sci-fi city building sim Ixion (opens in new tab), but it was undoubtedly a game with a few scorch marks seared across its hull. One of the bigger issues was its unpredictable level of challenge, something Alexander Chatziioannou noted in his review (opens in new tab): “The way Ixion stealthily slides into doom-spirals of unsustainability makes reloading preferable to redesigning.”

Developer Bulwark Studios has clearly been listening, as the game’s latest update introduces a suite of difficulty options. In a press release, Bulwark detailed the three primary difficulty options as follows:

  • Journey: For players who want to enjoy the game’s narrative and is recommended for those unfamiliar with the city-builder genre.
  • Default: The intended Ixion experience and is recommended for players familiar with city builders.
  • Challenge: An unrelenting fight for survival; this mode is for Administrators who really want to test their skills.
