Thanks to the hard work of one skilled fan and some Wikia engineers, you can now take a Supremacy Battleship from Sid Meier's Starships for a spin - literally. You can literally spin the ship around.
The interactive ship viewer (Supremacy) is great because you can really see how Affinity directs humanity's technological advancement in the Civilization: Beyond Earth universe. The slick metallic finish of this Battleship intimates, at a glance, the ideals of Supremacy and how its followers adopt cybernetic implants and technology as a means of evolutionary advancement. Kudos to the talented folks at Firaxis Games responsible for creating such a pronounced visual aesthetic.
For more information on Affinities and how they've changed from Beyond …Read more >
SId Meier's Starships takes place many years after the conclusion of your game of Civilization: Beyond Earth . Over this period of time, each Sponsor's leader and the Affinities - Harmony, Supremacy and Purity - guiding their progression have evolved dramatically. This not only plays out in the look of each leader, but also in the way your fleet operates in Sid Meier's companion game, Starships.
To help illustrate the hard work put in by the game artists as well as help paint a picture for how these two games are tied together in the same universe, the Beyond Earth and Starships teams synced up to produce a piece on the Civilization.com blog. Give it a read!
