Humankind is about a week and a half away, and Amplitude Studios and Sega are ratcheting up the marketing and hype before the big release. The game’s latest trailer titled: The Scale of Humankind, is aimed directly at showing off how different each game can be.
The trailer touts 60 historical cultures and over 1 million unique civilizations. I’m not a Humankind expert, so I’m not entirely sure how it gets to 1 million unique civilizations, but I have to imagine that is achieved through customization tweaks of some kind.
Humankind is going to have 129 different units, ten different terrain/biomes, 45 different animals, 93 researchable technologies, and lots of customization options for your leader.
The upcoming 4X strategy game draws a lot of comparisons to Civilization as Humankind, visually, looks very similar to one another and they both occupy the same genre. However, after going hands-on with Humankind, there are definitely some key differences that can be gleaned out, such as your culture/civilization evolving more organically (rather than locking yourself into one, and some unique gameplay features such as actually having to hunt for your food early on.
