Back arrow (CivBE) List of yields in CivBE

20xCultureBE Culture is another yield in Civilization: Beyond Earth. It represents the power of social innovation and influence.


Culture is generated from buildings, tile improvement, Expeditions, trade routes, and increased by Technology and Quests.


Culture has two main uses: border expansion and Virtues acquisition. At the city level, the local 20xCultureBE Culture yield is used to determine how fast the city territory will occupy new tiles nearby (only applies to land cities). At the colony level, the culture yields of all cities plus any bonuses gathers into a pool which is used to acquire Virtues and advance your colony's social organisation.
