Big Huge Games has announced
, the Live Arcade version of the classic board game, will be arriving on Xbox Live Arcade in the 1st quarter of this year. While this was somewhat expected, given Microsoft's recently announced lineup
of Arcade games, it's still a good sign that the game should show up soon. Also confirmed is that Catan
will support three to four players over Xbox Live and that AI opponents will be available. The designer of the original board game and the Arcade version, Klaus Teuber, has been working closely with Brian Reynolds to create challenging opponents. Teuber even admits that he has lost several game to the CPU.
If you can't get your fill of Catan
, be sure to visit the game's official website
, where you'll find screenshots and strategies for the upcoming game.
