Area Effect has officially announced Izle now after we covered it back in October last year. You may remember it as being the colorful 3D sandbox action-adventure with low-poly graphics.


The good news is that the studio has announced that the game is in development for PC, Wii U, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Last time, all we knew was that it was coming to PC and consoles.


The only downside of this announcement is that the game isn’t really confirmed for these platforms yet. Area Effect will be launching a Kickstarter for Izle this spring. So, presumably, the platforms the game comes to will depend on the funding the studio can get. And, rather than coming out in 2015, it’s said to be coming out in 2016 now.



Flipping it back over to good news again, the game’s website has now opened up for closed alpha sign-ups on PC, so if you want to give it a go sometime soon then drop your name down over there.


If you need a refresher of what Izle is about, first of all, watch the trailer above. Secondly, read this: “Izle invites its players to build their own world by summoning the power of the gods and terraforming a variety of islands. Each unique island is randomly created and ready for players to explore, harness abilities and forge items into endless possibilities to create new character classes.”
