Civilization: Beyond Earth is Firaxis’ homage to its previous turn-based space odyssey Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, and will be releasing on the 24th of October. Pre-orders are currently available, which will garner you the pre-order exclusive Exoplanet map pack, supposedly “based on real exoplanets“. More pertinently, Firaxis also released a narrated gameplay walkthrough of Beyond Earth and some background discussion on the lore and factional leaders of the game.
