2K and Firaxis Games have announced that Sid Meier’s Starships is now available for Windows PC, Mac and iPad.
Sid Meier’s Starships tasks players to command a fleet of starships within the same narrative universe as Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth. Players will face a series of turn-based missions as they explore the galaxy in search of other civilisations, to protect planets and their people, while building a federation to achieve intergalactic peace.
“Civilization: Beyond Earth encouraged players to explore humanity’s next chapter on an alien planet,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. “Starships takes players on a new adventure to find the other worlds settled by humanity, engage in a series of tactical missions, and ultimately bring peace and unity to the galaxy.”
Each campaign in Sid Meier’s Starships will offer a distinctive galactic strategy map of worlds, with dynamically generated combat missions to increase replay value. It was also revealed those who have purchased Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth will uncover cross-connectivity and unlockable bonuses, such as new planet types and mission, when they purchase Sid Meier’s Starships.
