2K Games and Firaxis Games announced Monday the latest title in the Sid Meier’s Civilization universe, Sid Meier’s Starships. The game is scheduled for release in “early 2015” as a digital title for Apple iPad, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Set in the post-game world of Civilization: Beyond Earth, Starships promises to allow players to “build a planetary federation” in order to secure peace for the galaxy. PLayers take the role of starship commanders with the ability to customize their fleet of vessels for exploration and combat. Firaxis is planning cross-connectivity between Beyond Earth title and Starshps.
