The game is set in historical setting. The player takes control of a simple community and must carry it through over the centuries. Starting the game, we create a civilization, combining elements taken from 60 real cultures of different periods - from the Bronze Age to the present day.
The game takes place in a turn-based system and the player's goal is to gain great fame, which we build by making important decisions, winning battles and accomplishing other great deeds. We meet many famous historical figures and we have to face events that took place in the past. We must also take care of the economy, establish diplomatic and trade relations and develop the technological level of our subordinates.
Apart from managing our civilization, we spend a lot of time fighting, which also takes place in turns. The devs have prepared a tactical battle system, taking into account, among others, terrain and objects on the map. Such approach also affects the strategic layer, as it is necessary, for example, to design cities in such a way that it is easier to defend them against attacks of enemy armies.
Humankind offers both single-player and online multiplayer gameplay.
The game features nice three-dimensional visuals, adopting a colorful, slightly cartoonish style.
