Greetings, Civ fans! The moment you've been waiting ages for is almost here: Civilization: Beyond Earth, the next installment in Sid Meier's illustrious Civilization franchise, is a mere few weeks from finding its way onto your computer and occupying countless hours (or years) of your life.

Learning the ins and outs of a new entry in the Civilization series can always prove overwhelming. Though some systems and mechanics in Beyond Earth are recognizable, obvious updates of tried-and-true 4X staples from previous titles, the masterminds at Firaxis Games have incorporated a slough of new ideas in their spiritual successor to Alpha Centauri to make for an experience that will prove new and challenging. No need to fret, intrepid strategist -- the Official Civilization Wikia has a number of resources, listed below, meant to level the learning curve and prepare you for exoplanetary civilizing.

First, take a look at the Civ: Beyond Earth Instant Expert page, where The official Civilization Wikia has compiled all the information you need to get started with the latest installment in the Civ franchise. With must-see media, essential articles, community commentary, and more, everything you need to know about Beyond Earth is here! Make sure to check back after release for even more cool features related to the game.
Next up, check out the article page on Beyond Earth, which provides a fantastic and detailed overview of Beyond Earth's gameplay and plot. As more details emerge about the game, this page will further develop into a one-stop hub for all things you need to know about the game.
Wikia and admin ZeroOne recently spent some time with Firaxis Games at their HQ for a fan event called Firaxicon. We attended panels, played the game, and reveled in all things Civ Fandom. Check out our Firaxicon portal for a comprehensive overview of all the cool stuff we saw at the show.
The games in Sid Meier's Civilization franchise make for incredibly memorable moments, whether extraordinarily frustrating or exhilarating. To commemorate launch month, we want you to share the unforgettable episodes in your Civ history. Your comment could be featured in an upcoming video!
