Crossroads Inn is a real-time tavern management simulator, where you build your very own tavern, hire and oversee staff, manage your supply chain and specialize your services, research new recipes and encounter a host of unconventional characters.

Crossroads Inn is a real-time management sim with role-playing games elements.

The game consists of two unique modes offering totally different experiences. In Sandbox mode gamers will focus solely on managing their business and economy – to build their very own tavern, hire and oversee staff, manage the supply chains and create new dish recipes. In Campaign mode, micromanagement is just a prelude to a rich story as the kingdom is in turmoil and a shift of power is expected. Your Inn will soon attract the attention of important political and military figures, who are desperately trying to hold on to the reins of power.

Gamers will become part of a large-scale drama full of political intrigues, vivid characters, treacherous NPC’s and dangerous quests inspired by RPG games – You will even have a damsel in distress to save!

Crossroads Inn for Xbox One and Xbox Series X will offer all the solutions known from the PC Enhanced Edition and will include, among others, all improvements, additional content, patches, new characters, as well as an improved user interface.

The console version will also have all the previously released story additions.

Crossroads Inn was released on PC on October 23, 2019. A few hours from the premiere, the game climbed to the 3rd global position TOP seller on Steam, selling over 100,000 copies of the basic version of the game and DLCs. Klabater has been working on a version of the game for Microsoft consoles for over a year. A special porting team of several people has been created to undertake the challenging task of transferring an extensive strategy game to consoles.

"Crossroads Inn is an extremely important brand for us, which we intend to develop in the coming years. A part of this development is also the version for Microsoft's console, which from the development side was a really big challenge. I am very pleased with the results of the work of the team responsible for porting the game to Xbox.” - says Michał Gembicki, Joint-CEO in Klabater. - "The console edition required us to, among others, rethink game controls. It is not easy to adapt a large strategy Tycoon game for a console. There are not many titles on the Xbox which offer such extensive gameplay - I hope that Crossroads Inn will fill this gap perfectly.”

Crossroads Inn for Xbox One and Series X will offer:

  • The basic version of the game
  • Pests & Puppies DLC that allows you to breed animals and fight off pests
  • The Pit DLC allows you to build underground and to conduct illegal business
  • The Hooves & Wagons DLC introducing horses, carriages, and stables
  • Bath & Beauty DLC that allows you to beautify toilets and baths
  • Crops & Harvest DLC (new content) focused on the crop and harvest cycle
  • A new type of a bard and an adventurer

Klabater's flagship title will also see new, interesting expansions on the console later this year:

  • The Circus - an expansion inspired by Klabater’s The Amazing American Circus (work in progress), featuring three new heroes (clown, strongman, and juggler) who will visit our tavern, as well as wagons, stage, and circus decorations that this colorful troupe of circus artists will bring with them.
  • Booze and Liquor - an expansion inspired by the moonshining culture. A new character, a moonshiner, and items related to brewing alcohol will appear in the inn.
Crossroads Inn is coming to Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S on May 19, 2021, with pre-orders starting on May 12, 2021.
