Dovetail Games and Asmodee Entertainment are delighted to announce a partnership to bring CATAN to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
 

The island of Catan emerges on the screen for an immersive game experience like no other. Settlements grow up from fertile grain fields and cities nestle into the sides of majestic mountains. Barter for resources, place roads and settlements to claim single or multiplayer victory in the digital version of the world famous award-winning tabletop game.
 

The digital tabletop version of CATAN will bring the power and functionality of games consoles and combine that with the mechanics and themes of one of the world’s greatest board games.
 

Jon Rissik, Dovetail CEO: “I have been a board game enthusiast and a committed CATAN player for many years, so it’s a personal thrill for me to be able to bring this much-loved experience to the Xbox and PlayStation platforms. Creatively, we are working with the team at Nomad Games who bring a wealth of experience in crafting high-quality digital board game experiences. We can’t wait to be able to bring the world of CATAN to life in a way that hasn’t been seen before on a digital platform.”
 

Benjamin Teuber, Managing Director of CATAN GmbH: “We are very excited that CATAN will be adapted for PlayStation and Xbox and are looking forward to working with Dovetail and their developers at Nomad on this version.”
 

Andy Jones, Managing Director of Asmodee Entertainment: “Bringing CATAN to the two major console platforms was a top priority for us and to be working with Dovetail gives us huge confidence that this will be an amazing game for both CATAN aficionados and new players alike.”
