The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition – September 6 – PS4

In 2016, some players were able to participate in a strange online multiplayer social game called The Tomorrow Children for PS4. It was a simulation game that involves collecting and building resources to create your own city and protect it from giant monsters.

The title’s failure led to its closure in 2017, but the new Phoenix Edition will bring back all of the game’s mechanics in the single-player version. There is still multiplayer support, but players simply invite other users to their city, without the need for a permanent server that can be shut down like in the original game.
