From outposts to cities, humanity must adapt to survive.
This is the month, and 2K and Firaxis wants you to know it. In less than two weeks, 'Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth' will debut, and it's safe to to say that it represents the largest shake-up to the excellent 'Civilzation' formulae in more than a decade. Today, the publisher/developer combo shared the game's opening cinematic, which, taking after the game as a whole, has a bit more distinct flavor to it than past 'Civilization' openings.
