There’s a new Civilization game that was just announced with a new game trailer and some limited screen shots. This new game is called Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth and it is basically the Civilization game franchise going beyond this planet and becoming SciFi. This game will focus on other worlds and universes and alien planets and will likely put humans against their environment and each other. Firaxis hasn’t said much about the game itself, but they did provide a pretty interesting trailer as well as some somewhat boring looking screenshots. Hopefully the game will look more interesting than the screenshots they provided when this game comes out this fall. Oh, also, this game will support AMD’s Mantle API which means that there’s a good chance that a lot of users with AMD’s APUs will see a pretty significant performance improvement playing this game versus Civ 5.

The screen shots, below, are also posted on their site for your inspection, as well.
