Sega and Amplitude Studio’s upcoming 4X strategy game, Humankind, showed off a new trailer today at The Game Awards.
The trailer, which showcases the triumph of “Lucy” a fictional character meant to represent us the player, is light on gameplay but it does confirm an important detail: Humankind will release on April 22, 2021 on Steam, Stadia, and the Epic Game Store.
Also, players that have pre-purchased Humankind can give it a go via the Lucy OpenDev period which will run from Dec. 15 at 10:00 EST to Dec. 28 at 10:00 EST.
Earlier this year we were able to preview Humankind. Our news editor, Giuseppe Nelva walked away encouraged about how Humankind was coming along and didn’t feel it was a Civilization clone; a complaint that has been levied on Humankind since it was revealed, saying:
Ultimately, Humankind comes with a lot of unique flavors and appears to hide plenty of depth under the hood.
