Civilization: Beyond Earth was a satisfying strategy game that expanded and improved on Civilization formula in a lot of interesting ways, and the game will soon be getting even deeper, with the release of Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide, the first full expansion for Beyond Earth.
Rising Tide will of course deliver new factions, units and things to build, but the big addition is much-expanded oceanic gameplay. In past Civ games, the ocean was just a big blue obstacle you sail across to get to the next chunk of land, but you can now explore the seabed for resources and even found floating cities in Rising Tide. Oceans actually being good for something is a pretty major shake-up to the Civ formula, and should make an already great game even better.
Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide sweeps store shelves this fall.
