Auroch Digital and Positech Games have announced the release of Democracy 4: Console Edition for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox on June 5, 2024. The game is a political simulation where players lead one of ten countries, implementing policies, laws, and actions to positively impact some areas while negatively affecting others. The ultimate goal is to win the next election.

Players can choose from countries such as the USA, UK, Japan, France, Canada, Australia, Spain, Germany, Italy, and South Korea. They inherit a pre-elected cabinet with biases and opinions, and must determine their country's future. Introducing new policies, tweaking existing bills, and reacting to developing events can impact the public's perception and the polls.

As leader, players will be asked to comment on headline-status situations, and their responses can impact public opinion during times of crisis. Some people will support the leader, while others will not, potentially leading to assassination attempts and other challenges.

Before the end of the term, players must lay out a manifesto for re-election, offering realistic or ambitious promises to win public support. Democracy 4: Console Edition has been adapted for consoles from the ground up and will be available for pre-order and wishlist on PlayStation and Xbox on June 5, 2024, with the Nintendo Switch version available soon.
