Civilization Beyond Earth was just released yesterday on Steam and on CD Rom for Mac, PC and Linux. I expect it to be released on the App store most likely later this year and hopefully come with Game Centre Multiplayer support.
The game costs now 49.99 Dollars but if you want to save a bit of money I suggest you wait till the winter when the game will be more stable and Steam most likely put a discount on it.
But if you can wait and really want the best and the newest games out there or you are a avid civ fanatic and need to buy it now, the reviews have been very good and price is fairly reasonable already.
Today I would like to talk about a mod thats been out for Civ for a while now but I never got into it. A couple of days ago I decided to give it a go and I loved it. The game ideas and mechanics are changed quite a lot but they make sense and are still amazing. I love all the customized units such as land icon lands are the air balloons. It makes the game feel so much more interesting.
Winning the game is a bit different than in a usual civ game, instead of winning a science victory by going to Alpha Centauri or winning a Domination Victory by conquering all the Capital cities in the world, here in the steampunk mod you win victories by owning the most units or generating the most gold in a period of time, its pretty nice in my opinion.
I recommend you to give it a try and I think you’ll like it.
