    Preview of the game in French. Translation:

    -You'll go beyond earth as the title implies, making it more like Alpha Centauri.
    - Out this Autumn
    - You start on an alien world
    - There are three types of worlds: Lush, Airy and Fungal
    - You'll still be building cities like in CIv V but to expand to other planets you'll use outposts.
    - You can be the first to explore a new planet and you may find some neutral creatures/races on those worlds. You can either destroy them or leave them be.
    - Relics are still in.
    - You can win the game by returning to earth. To do that you'll need to put a satellite in orbit around the earth and you can either return to earth to win or you can bring the refugees of earth to your home world.
    - You can use diplomacy with other players right from the start.
    - Fog of War is still present
    - There are now orbital units that you can command like satellites.



    Guess it was meant to be unveiled as a surprise at PAX East today, but someone dun goof'd.

    This could be interesting since they're not copying Alpha Centauri straight up.



    Edit* I take this previous statement back..

    Coming soon: Civ5, the space reskin!

    Are they at least going to take out that shitniggerfaggotcocksuckassgobblinghomoqueer IDIOCY that prevented you from putting more than one unit in a square? More than anything else, that wrecked Civ5.

    Hmm, got my interest spiked. I just hope this isn't a mere CivV reskin but also comes with it's own innovations.

    I really do doubt this will be good. And no CiV was not destroyed by 1 unit per tile. It was destroyed by everything else

    I got excited for a second till I saw the bullet points.
    Doesnt seem like the ambitious or brand new project I was hoping for.

    The 3 worlds is a blatant sign that they are building a small base game with 100 dlc chunks ready to dripfeed over x years.
    I dont want a Civ 5 standalone expansion, especially if i have to wait for the gold edition till its feature complete.

    Yeah you'll have to wait four years before buying else you'll pay for years for this.

    As someone who actually likes Civ5(with the expansions), this looks like it could be good. Hope the features listed are just some of the new stuff. It's rare that any space themed game comes out anymore, so yeah, fuck all the haters.

    Sounds like they're basically ripping off Warlock 2's Exiled mode, but with planets instead of planes.

    I also like Civ 5. That doesn't mean I automatically assume any new game will be good.

    Also, this isn't space based.

    Are social policies actually going to be policies or just upgrades?

    Is religion going to be included and will it actually be an interesting mechanic or once again just a series of upgrades?

    Will espionage go back to using units on the map and some resource(s) and let you do cool and interesting things again?

    Can we have custom factions/civs?

    I've got 0 trust for Sid, Firaxis and 4X in general at the moment.

    Will keep an eye out but I've got no hopes or expectations.
