'Aztez' Confirms Console Platforms - Screens & Trailer

In Aztez, you expand and maintain the Aztec empire through turn-based strategy, while managing violent outbreaks via real-time beat 'em up sequences.

In Aztez, you are responsible for expanding and maintaining the Aztec empire with turn-based strategy gameplay, and managing violent outbreaks with real-time beat 'em up gameplay segments. But your actions in one gameplay type directly affect the other! A game of Aztez doesn't take to long to play, but it is designed to be hugely replayable, as every game of exciting empire management is different from the last; different events will occur, different challenges will emerge, and different spoils will be taken every time you play.

At its core, Aztez is two games. One of those games is a full on real-time beat ‘em up combat experience, mixing feel and creativity of Bayonetta, the sensationalism and mobility of Capcom’s Alien Vs Predator, and the precision difficulty of classic Devil May Cry.

The other game that comprises Aztez is an empire management strategy game, and that’s where the aforementioned replayability comes from, creating an infinitely more interesting vehicle for thrilling combat; a randomized, historical Risk-like.

Every game is unique; different events will occur, different challenges will emerge, and different spoils will be taken each time you play. Spread, strengthen, subjugate!

Originally only shown at PAX as a PC game (with Oculus Rift support), Team Colorblind has now confirmed that Aztez is also coming to Xbox One, PS4, Vita, and Wii U.


Key features:

  • 4+ complete weapon sets: the spear, the club, the ritual knife, the legendary obsidian sword, and more.
  • Finely tuned array of enemies based on the Aztec archetypes: the Eagle warriors, the Jaguar warriors, the Noble warriors, the combat Priests, and more.
  • Customizable avatar; beat the gear off of your enemies and wear it!
  • 30+ combat environments based on real Aztec cities.
