Sid Meier is making a new game, Civilization: Beyond Earth. Boom, news done.
No, but seriously, this extraterrestrial approach to the Civilization franchise will finally give fans a nod towards Alpha Centauri, after all these years. Even if it’s just Civilization V with a backdrop, we wouldn’t mind that much, but hopefully it’s going to be even more special.
On the tail of this announcement, 4X competitor Stardock has realized that there days are numbered and prompted a large discount for their title, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. It’s today Steam deal at €9.24, which is 75% off. Ok, that might not be the actual reason, since these things are decided ahead of time, but it is quite coincidental, isn’t it?
If you want to get ready for Civilization: Beyond Earth, the Sins of a Solar Empire series is a good place to start with its expansive space conquest. It’s also a much safer bet at that price than Stardock’s other new venture, Galactic Civilizations III, which it put up on Steam for a hundred bucks. And that’s for a rather empty build. Yeah.
