Civilization Beyond Earth goes on sale tomorrow!
« on: October 24, 2014, 03:57:25 AM »
It is good to see another option for Fans of the Civilization Franchise coming tomorrow.  But for those wondering, Civplayers is not starting a new separate league for Beyond Earth, they will just be reported on the Civ5 league, with players making comments in the game comments stating that it is a CivBE game.

The reason for this is that CivBE is really just a large detailed Mod for Civ5, it's based entirely on the Civ5 engine, and though things are renamed you will quickly see that the game mechanics are not fundamentally different.

And while I hope it gains a popular following, the game mechanics(much like SMAC before this) are not going to be balanced for human vs human playing.  So while it may be good for casual games, it's not going to be tuned to the needs of competitive MP.

But that aside, it's a good day in Civland when we get more options for varied gameplay.
