Civilization: Beyond Earth is a turn based strategy game that will be playable on a hexagonal grid. While previous games in the series have shown off more linear tech trees, Civilization: Beyond Earth boasts a tech web that can branch off into various directions, though players will have to pick one and only one to pursue. Also, as the name implies, this game is going to take place in the future, whereas previous games in the series were all about playing well known historical empires. The initial trailer itself certainly gets one excited for the game, but doesn’t show off any gameplay, so we’ve included a more recent gameplay vid below as well.
