Civilization Beyond Earth

Post by scobywhru » Sat Apr 12, 2014 9:35 pm


• Seed the Adventure: Players will establish a cultural identity, select a leader and sponsor an expedition by assembling the spacecraft, cargo and colonists through a series of choices that directly impact starting conditions when arriving on the new alien planet.

• Alien World: Exploring the benefits and dangers of a new planet filled with dangerous terrain, mystical resources and hostile lifeforms unlike those of Earth, players will build outposts, unearth ancient alien relics, tame new forms of life, develop flourishing cities and establish trade routes to create prosperity for their people.

• New Technology Web: Reflecting forward progress in an uncertain future, technology advancement will occur through a series of nonlinear choices that affect the development of mankind. The tech web is organized around three broad themes, each with a distinct victory condition.

• New Quest System: Quests are infused with fiction about the planet, and will help guide players through a series of side missions that will aid in the collection of resources, upgrading units, and advancing through the game.

• New Orbital Layer: Players will build and deploy advanced military, economic and scientific satellites that provide strategic offensive, defensive and support capabilities from orbit.

I hope it's better than Civ V. I grew up playing IV, and I thought V was just a watered down rehash of IV :/.
But this looks like it's gonna take the series in a whole new direction, which makes me super hyped for it.

i like civ 4 and 5. Never played alpha centrae, but this looks great, can't decide between supremacy and purist.

I asked David Geffen personally if he'd donate to TF4 for me, but he wouldn't do it

Alpha Centauri was the best Civ game ever, and I still play it every now and again. Civ V has some nice new features and the toning down of stacks of death was likely needed, but I still miss moving an army consisting of artillery infantry and armor around to conquer.

For those of you that didn't play Alpha Centauri, if you like turn based strategy games that have enough micromanagement to engage but not overwhelm, you should find a copy of AC.

One of the things that set AC apart from other Civ type games was your ability to customize units. Each unit- military or civilian (colony pod, terraformer), were modular. This meant you could slap rockets onto your spy, land outside of a city and infiltrate it on the same turn.

And Scooby's right- AC is arguably the best Civ game in the series.

I need to grab the installer off of GOG again and actually play it for once. I kept meaning to play it but got distracted every time i had a chance to play. Ugh.

Edit: shit, necro. err.... Here's a video so this isn't all for nothing
