Today Amplitude and Sega released a new video of their upcoming simulation game Humankind.
This time around, the video is all about your cities and how they can be used to claim more and more territory.
The world is split into areas that you can claim with your cities, and then you can merge them dynamically to increase the size of your city. Basically the game encourages you to build fewer cities than other titles in the same center, but they can be truly massive megalopolis.
You can also claim more territory with outposts, but those cannot be further developed unless you convert them into cities.
You can check out the video below.
Humankind has been announced only for PC and will come in 2020.
If you’re unfamiliar with it, here’s an official description.
“HUMANKIND is Amplitude Studios’ magnum opus, a Historical Turn-Based Strategy game where YOU will re-write the entire narrative of humankind – a convergence of culture, history, and values that allows you to create a civilization that is as unique as you are.
Create your own civilization by combining 60 historical cultures from the Bronze to the Modern Age.
Begin as Ancient Egypt, then evolve into the Romans, the Khmers, or perhaps the Vikings.
Each culture brings its own special gameplay layer, leading to near-endless outcomes.”
