About Civilization: Beyond Earth
Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth is a turn-based strategy that puts players ahead of the task of building and maintaining a self-sustaining human colony on a foreign and dangerous planet.
Beyond Earth begins around 2265. The basic rules of the game known from Civilization have been preserved. Players take on the mission commander, whose task is to explore and colonize an unknown planet. The game uses the improvements introduced with the fifth installment of the main cycle – the map has thus been divided into hexes, on which only individual units can stay.
The novelty introduced in Beyond Earth is the delay of landing of the remaining factions of colonists on the new planet – the first phase of the game applies only to the player and the local flora and fauna. Other colonists appear gradually with subsequent turns. The mechanism of the game, however, makes sure that the odds are equal – latecomers receive slightly better equipment, useful in the initial development, thanks to which they are able to catch up with the player and lead a balanced fight with him.
We start the game with a small colony, which is extremely sensitive to attacks and various dangers. These are primarily alien life forms that will inhabit the planet in large numbers. The local fauna has a lot of nests on the map and fiercely defends them, therefore the expansion should be much more cautious than in other scenes of civilization. Development is additionally slowed down by the fact that each newly established colony needs time and supplies of raw materials so that it can obtain the status of a full-fledged city capable of producing. Players can build improvements on the surrounding fields, as well as build new buildings and discover technologies.back to menu ↑
