Timberborn celebrates its second anniversary and 1,000,000 copies sold with a new trailer

‍Warsaw, Poland, September 15, 2023. Timberborn, the highly acclaimed beaver city builder from Polish developer Mechanistry, is celebrating its two-year Early Access anniversary! Since September 15th, 2021, the game has sold over one million copies. To celebrate these milestones, Mechanistry has released a new gameplay trailer showcasing the game’s signature features such as the two beaver factions, vertical architecture, post-apocalyptic droughts, and water physics.

Timberborn is our debut title – when it launched on September 15, 2021, we were unsure what to expect. We chose the self-publishing route and, operating on an indie budget, that launch was our studio’s make or break. Two years and a million copies sold later, we’re proud to have a thriving community of dedicated players and a game we continue to improve, working towards the 1.0 launch.

- says Kamil Dawidów, Mechanistry’s Co-CEO.

Mechanistry is now working on its fifth major content update for the game, soon to be released onto Timberborn’s experimental branch.

The new Timberborn gameplay trailer published today is narrated by Elle Newlands, known for her roles in Diablo 4 and Apex Legends, among other titles. The 4K video and an updated selection of in-game screenshots can be found in Timberborn’s press kit.
