Immerse yourself in the world of CATAN as you trade, build and settle on a premium 3D board now available for preorder with delivery expected in August.
Roseville, MN – May 25, 2021 – Today, CATAN Studio and Asmodee announced the forthcoming release of CATAN – 3D Edition, a premium game that showcases the iconic CATAN game in all its three-dimensional glory. CATAN – 3D Edition can be preordered at CatanShop.com. The MSRP of CATAN – 3D Edition is $300 USD.
The island of Catan rises up from the table for an immersive game experience like no other. Settlements grow up from fertile grain fields and cities nestle into the sides of majestic mountains. You can almost hear the sheep baa-ing in their pastures.
This long-awaited 3D Edition of the contemporary classic board game CATAN is based on terrain tiles that were hand sculpted by the game designer Klaus Teuber himself. All of the terrain is hand painted for stunning color, and intricately designed player pieces are antiqued for a look that is full of history and character.
“CATAN – 3D Edition is the product of years of diligent effort and attention to detail,” said Pete Fenlon, CEO of CATAN Studio. “Our goal was to create a durable premium product that not only looks beautiful on a game table, but that also creates a visually stunning foundation for immersive storytelling.”
This is not the first time a 3D version of CATAN has been released. In 2005, a special collector’s 3D edition of what was then called The Settlers of Catan was released. Ever since, the growing popularity and reach of the game has increased fan demand for a new 3D edition.
“The gaming hobby has grown by leaps and bounds since the last time we released a 3D edition more than 15 years ago,” Fenlon said. “There is a whole new generation of players who have been eagerly awaiting this game. Using refined designs and improved technology, we’re thrilled to finally be able to share it with them.”
CATAN – 3D Edition Contains:
- Hand-painted 3D terrain hex tiles, sea frames, and harbor markers
- Antiqued 3D player pieces in four colors
- Antiqued robber figure
- Card sorting trays
- Custom CATAN dice
