Firaxis has announced Sid Meier’s Starships, a strategy game set in the Beyond Earth’s universe. The game will be released for PC, Mac and iPad and is scheduled for later this year.
The game puts players in the role of starship commanders and they will be able to explore the galaxy.
“When designing Starships, I was intrigued by the idea of exploring the next chapter in the story of Civilization: Beyond Earth,” Meier said. “What happens after we colonize our new home and eventually build starships to take to the stars? What has become of our long-lost brothers and sisters from the planet Earth?”
“My goal was to create an experience that focuses on starship design and combat within a universe filled with interstellar adventure, diplomacy, and exploration.”
