Set in the Beyond Earth universe, you’ll be tasked with creating and expanding a galactic federation.
2K Games and Firaxis have announced Sid Meier’s Starships, the newest strategy game from the industry legend. It will be arriving this Spring on PC and iOS and set in the same universe as Civilization: Beyond Earth. Check out the first cinematic trailer for the game above.
In Starships, players will work on creating an interplanetary federation and expanding it beyond the stars. You’ll be spreading your influence, researching better technologies and participating in turn-based space battles. Various ships will be available to research and customize for the skirmishes.
Firaxis is also promising a “distinctive galactic strategy map of worlds with dynamically generated tactical combat missions”. Cross-connectivity will exist between Beyond Earth and Starships that will expand on both games significantly.
