game release date for PC:
Humankind is a turn-based 4X strategy. The production was developed by Amplitude, a studio specializing in this genre, known for its games Endless Legend and Dungeon of The Endless and the Endless Space series.
The game is set in historical reality. 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 from 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 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 on fighting, which also takes place in rounds. The authors have prepared a tactically developed battle system, taking into account, among others, the terrain and objects on the map. Such an 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 multiplayer online gameplay.
The game boasts a nice three-dimensional graphic design, made in a colorful, slightly cartoon style.
