Civilization Beyond Earth has been released for Mac just a couple days ago, you can buy it from the App store and Steam. Firaxes and 2K have also announced that the Linux version of the game will come soon.
I will now install Civ BE and just play around with it and write a post about my experiences later.
Firaxes has today jus announced that you can pre purchase a digitial copy of the new Civilisation Beyond Earth game on Steam.
If you buy it now the game will be available for download on October 24th There are two options and two prices for purchasing Civilisation Beyond Earth. The first pricing option is 49,99 Dollars and includes only the game. The second pricing option is 69,99 Dollars, this is a bundle which includes not only Civilisation Beyond Earth but also Civilization III Civilization IV and Civilization V.
Pre purchasing at the moment is only available for Windows.
With the recent events happening around Civilization Beyond Earth I though it would be quite helpful to you people if you saw one of the gameplay’s of the game, to give you a small idea of how the game will look like when it is released in October.
I will also post the trailer here if you have not seen it yet.
Hope you enjoy them if you haven’t seen them yet.
The release date of Civilization Beyond earth has been announced. It will be released worldwide on the 24th of October. It will be released simultaneously for PC Mac and Linux (unlike with Civ 5 where it came a whole two month later out). Although availability has not yet been clarified it will most likely have a CD download including a digital download from steam. It is not clear if it will be released on the Mac App Store on day one.
So it seems first of all that beyond earth (the new civ game) will be official released somewhere in september, a clear date has not been given yet but judging by the last release dat of 10 September or Civ 5 it will probably be released again early in September.
Then most likely it will be released a bit later for Mac most likely a month later. For OSX the likelihood that it will include snow leopard in the system requirements will in my opinion be quite low.
For Windows it is hard to say but I think that Vista will also be dropped for the new Civ Beyond Earth game.
So in the end my prediction with using facts is:
Windows Release: September 10th System Requirements Windows 7 and higher
OSX Release: October 22nd System Requirements OSX 10.7 and higher
I had expected this for a while but not like this.
I had expected that Firaxes would bring out a new Civ game this year, but not one as bold as the one which was released only a couple of days ago, the new civ game is called Civilization: Beyond Earth, a bold step from the old games in one major way.
Instead of starting on earth at the beginning of humans agricultural beginnings and ending to the near future. Civilization Beyond Earth goes to a time period when humans leave earth to a new planet.
Here is the trailer:
I will be brining out more posts later with further details.
Mac, PC, Linux
Are you exited?
So hi all and a belated happy new year!
So I was wondering about something, it occurred to me that every major release of civ happened about every 4-5 years so we might hopefully be expecting some nice news from the guys at Firaxes about a complete new Civ game like something that might be called Civilization 6? Maybe, we won’t know for sure but we will most likely again here something from the guys at Firaxes for sure but if it will be about a new expansion pack or a new game we won’t know yet.
<p><p><p>As it has been nearly a whole month since the introduction and the release of the Brave New World expansion pack I decided to try to predict the future roadmap for the Civilization franchise. So let’s get started.<p>Like Civilization 4 I would predict that Civilization 5 will have three different Expansion packs which would most likely mean that the last expansion pack will be released in the middle of next year 2014. Probably the year later in early 2015 firaxes would most likely announce Civilization 6 or a continuation of the civilization franchise. This of course is not sure as we have seen firaxes branch in to new Game franchises such as the quite successful game XCOM: Enemy Unknown. But if all goes well Civilization 6 will be announced in early 2015 and released between September and November for both Mac and PC and later in the following years introduce expansion packs for civilization 6. <p>All of this is speculation but it seams to be the most probable future for the civilization franchise.
