Civilization: Beyond Earth Lands Safely This October

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth launches October 24 on PC and Mac, 2K Games announced.  The publisher also confirmed that anyone who pre-orders the game will get the Exoplanets Map Pack, which adds six custom maps inspired by real life exoplanets.

Civilization: Beyond Earth is the latest entry in the Civilization franchise, and the spiritual successor to Alpha Centauri.  In-game, players will leave Earth after “The Great Mistake” and found colonies on other planets in order to save the human race.  In traditional Civilization fashion, players are given numerous ways to win the game, from domination to economic supremacy to enlightenment, Beyond Earth gives you the tools to play your way.

We got to spend some time with the game at E3 2014, and came away quite impressed.  Civilization: Beyond Earth embraces the gameplay of its predecessors all the while creating new mechanics to keep the game fresh.  If you like Civilization V then you’ll really enjoy Civilization: Beyond Earth.  Check out our full E3 2014 preview here.
