To Boldly Go Further

by on 12th Apr 2014

We're destined to go beyond. Past our home system and out into the stars in the now revealed new AAA offering coming from the Firaxis constellation, named Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth.

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth is a new science-fiction-themed entry into the award-winning Civilization series. As part of an expedition sent to find a home beyond Earth, lead your people into a new frontier, explore and colonize an alien planet and create a new civilization in space.

Seemingly drawing inspiration from Alpha Centauri, we are to start out on a distant planet, aiming to first gain a foothold and then extend our influence on it, starting with a modest outpost and expanding to build several cities.

There is to be wildlife of an alien, but purportedly irrational sort, and evidence of ancient presence of a more evolved form of alien life too; something which naturally bears investigating. Meanwhile, good old Earth is in peril too, apparently, and unsurprisingly, due to our own continued recklessness in taking proper care of it. Creating a new home for ourselves as well as restoring contact with Earth are therefore both topics of major importance.

An article at Polygon has more information, conveyed by four of the developers in charge of the upcoming title, which is currently  slated for release come Autumn 2014.
