Ubisoft+ Spotlight - From Dust

(Editorial note: This is a series of quick weekly highlights written by our News team writers that feature games available with a Ubisoft+ subscription. We hope you'll enjoy reminiscing with us, or perhaps discover something new.)

Chris Watters, Editorial Communications Manager: Wielding the powers of a god in From Dust can be a heady experience. As you gather up earth and water into a floating orb called The Breath, you can move it and pour it out at your whim, shaping the landscape and creating havens for the tribe of intrepid human settlers you are shepherding. Watching their villages grow and spread greenery makes you feel magnanimous; look how they prosper under your guidance! But you are not an omnipotent god, and the laws of nature still govern the way water flows, the way earth settles, and the way lava burns - which is not always quite the way you might like. And don't get me started on tsunamis! Each level of From Dust presents new problems for your flock, and as you attempt to solve them, new ones crop up and put your elemental mastery to the test. Staying one step ahead is an engaging challenge in this god game, and I consider it one of the hidden gems of the Ubisoft+ catalog.
