Civilization: Beyond Earth 101
Since the franchise’s inception
in 1991, Sid Meier’s Civilization
has set the standard for grand strategy. With the newest installment, Civilization: Beyond Earth
is taking Civ off-planet, challenging players to seed and nurture human colonies in far-off worlds teeming with challenges.
Civilization: Beyond Earth takes place 600 years in the future in the aftermath of a global catastrophe referred to simply as The Great Mistake, the details of which remain mostly unstated. Players have more nuanced control over the composition of their civilizations at the game’s outset in Beyond Earth. They’re able to customize their outbound colonization ship, specifying its type, cargo, and the colonists that populate it. Players also choose a sponsor, similar to previous games’ leaders, each of which features its own set of special perks.
