A new 4x strategy along the lines of Civilization from the studio behind Endless Space. Called Humankind it includes over 60 different historical cultures spanning human history. Like that one time our ancestors discovered the sweet power of synths. As depicted in the very cool announcement trailer.
One million civilizations – Create your own unique civilization by combining 60 different historical cultures from across the heritage of humanity. Begin as Ancient Egypt, then evolve into the Romans, the Khmers, or perhaps the Vikings—the choice is up to you. Each culture brings its own special gameplay layer, leading to near-endless outcomes.
More than history, it’s your story - Face real historical events and figures, make great scientific discoveries and visit the wonders of the world. Shape your people’s beliefs and confront other players. Every decision you make adds a flourish to your story.
In the eyes of posterity – The journey matters more than the destination. Fame is a new and unifying victory condition. Every great deed you accomplish, every moral choice you make, every battle won will build your fame and leave a lasting impact on the world. The player with the most fame will win the game.
A tactical world – Show off your tactical skills by mastering terrain elevation, city-building, full tactical battles and warfare. Choose the high ground for your city and it will be harder to siege. Deploy your archers in the woods to avoid stampeding horsemen. Call upon your allies to help you in times of need and transform an epic battle into a full-scale multiplayer world war!
Based on the gameplay footage seen at the end of the trailer there's a definite Civ vibe to Humankind. And with developer Amplitude Studios history with the 4X genre this is something to keep an eye on. Humankind is on track for a 2020 release, and will be published by SEGA.
