In the near future, there’s a warfare where one type of unit inspires such fear that even allies keep a safe distance: the Ogre. AI-powered, cybernetic tanks, that are so powerful they are the equivalent of a battalion of tanks and infantry.
Hovercrafts, tanks, marines, infantry, and the Ogres themselves, all take part in an endless world war. As the player, you’ll take command and compete for dominance on the irradiated battlefields of the future.
Choose which units you want to include in your ultimate team, where to position them, and which attacks will work best against your enemy. Roll dice to determine how successful your decisions are going to be, and watch your tactics unfold in front of your very eyes.
From classic and beloved boardgame to PC game, the official adaptation of Ogre is now coming to Xbox. Fans and veterans of the game will be at home right away with the adaptation to Xbox, and fresh players will find their new favourite, deeply rewarding, turn-based strategy game.
The tabletop game has withstood the test of time for over 40 years, captivating players on tabletop and PC. Now it’s your turn to be captivated on Xbox! This release is the definitive Xbox version of Ogre , which includes the expanded G.E.V. rules for even more variety.
The PC version released in 2017 was the first ever digital adaptation since 1986, and since then we’ve been working hard to make it the best it can be, and to bring it to Xbox.
You’ll be able to build your own faction with a whole host of different types of units. From Light, Superheavy, and Missile Tanks, G.E.V.s, Infantry, Marines, Howitzers, and Ogres (Mark I – Mark VI). Make your dream unit and utilise trains and command posts as you see fit. Roll your way through many types of terrain, across bodies of water, and make use of defensive areas to shield your units from attack. Play your own way in a variety of different ways.
Will you play as the North American Combine, or the Pan European Federation? The choice is entirely yours to make as many times as you want, with whatever units you want. Ogre ’s AI will throw curveballs each time you play, so expect the unexpected even when you think you’ve figured it out!
