You won’t have to wait too far into the future for space themed strategy games goodness. 2k Games and developer Firaxis Games has revealed the release date of their upcoming science fiction themed strategy game. Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth, the game that no one wants to admit is a spiritual successor to Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri (but totally is), will be blasting off towards a PC near you on October 24th of this year. In addition to the release date, a new pre-order deal has been announced. Those that pre-order the game will receive the Exoplanets Map Pack. If you’re starving for more details, check out this info panel from back at PAX East.
