Civilization Beyond Earth Sneak Peak & Dev Chat From GameTrailers

Posted by , | Views: 5,676
It seems GameTrailers got a chance to sit down and have a chat with the guys about the new Civilization Beyond Earth that will come to Linux.

It sounds like it will have some really interesting game-play elements. There isn't much actual game-play shown as most of it is developer chat, but it's still interesting.

I think the 3 different paths that you can take will really be something. I am especially excited about the Harmony option, as you can talk to the planet as realise the planet itself is sentient. I wonder how they will show that in the game, exciting!

A quest system is also interesting for this type of game to give you something to work towards, so it's not so much of a sandbox as the previous iterations of the game.

Having Civilization on Linux again is a really big thing as it's one of the most popular game on Steam, so having a game like that on our platform will only ease the transition for others to Linux.

Until it comes out you can get your fix with Pandora: First Contact which is quite similar and I game I easily recommend. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I never really played any civ game, but it looks quiet nice. Fall 2014 is the release date, that is really no long wait

I am gonna play the hell out of this when it comes out. It does make me hesitate to try out Pandora, given this will be very much the same sort of thing but far more developed.

I actually bought Pandora the other day! Even though its not as in-depth and it seems much more combat based than Civ5, I think it was worth it to be honest. Smaller dev team, so less options... it is to be expected, but all in all, I've not regretted the purchase so far.

Not enough to stop me getting Beyond Earth by any means, but a nice filler that works well on Linux. Plus I think they did say they'd continue to work on it should it be successful enough, but I can't remember where I read that.

Well, they just released the Messari add-on so I'd say that's definitely indication the game is a going concern for the developers. Especially since Beyond Earth is coming so soon they're going to want to really emphasize what makes their game different and work more in that direction. Can't say I'm not sorely tempted.
