Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth

I’m a huge fan of Civilization. That’s why I’m excited when I heard about Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth.

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth is a new science fiction themed turn based game similar to the Civilization game that we are familiar with. The events of the game are set roughly 200 to 300 years from the present. As part of an expedition sent to find a home beyond Earth after the collapse of modern society, you lead your people into a new frontier, explore and colonize an alien planet and create a new civilization in space.


Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth will be released in Fall/Autumn 2014.

Sounds fun. Fans of Civilization and Alpha Centauri will definitely love Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth.
