A new title that looks set to add something exciting to the historical turn-based strategy game genre is on the horizon. Announced in a press release and at Gamescom 2019, Humankind, from SEGA and Amplitude Studios, puts you back to the early days of human history in order to start it afresh – and create your own unique civilisation.

Humankind will see you reimagine humans’ progression from the Neolithic era – the last stage of the Stone Age, which started around 12,000 years ago – through the ages, up to the modern era – and in your own unique way. You’ll be given 60 various “historical cultures from across the heritage of humanity” to combine and evolve, giving you “one million civilisations” (or, “near-endless” outcomes) to create from the cultures’ own specific gameplay “layers.”

Through your civilisation’s evolution, your choices, deeds, and victories will really matter – they’ll make a meaningful, lasting impact on your game’s world, and add to the story you create. Plus, they’ll contribute to your fame, which is a key aspect in the game – you’ll need to have the highest fame to win.
