A NEW BEGINNING FOR MANKIND
Civilization: Beyond Earth Beams Down on October 24
October 24, 2014 – That is the day Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth launches for Windows PC, as confirmed by 2K and Firaxis Games. Previously announced at PAX East 2014, the latest entry in the beloved strategy series is best described as the ‘spiritual successor’ to Alpha Centauri. Given the shift from traditional timeline to space exploration, players can expect to colonize alien worlds and research new technologies in an effort to propel humanity forward.
For those who pre-order the game, Civilization: Beyond Earth will be bundled with an Exoplanets Map Pack for free, which includes six custom maps – all of which are inspired by real exoplanets, from the Earth-like, forest-filled Kepler 186f, to the hot-and-cold Mu Arae f. A gameplay video was also released to coincide with the announcement.
