Civ BE: Rising Tide shows Diplomacy

Civ BE: Rising Tide shows Diplomacy

Here's a new gameplay video of Rising Tide, the upcoming expansion for Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth. It deals with the enhanced diplmoacy system and the new ways to build relationships. We've also added the first featurette from last month which shows how to colonise the ocean. The addon is coming on October 9.

Featurette 1 – Colonise the Ocean
Featurette 2 – A New Diplomatic Landscape

I hope this game ends up being more interesting after a couple of expansions.

Yeah.. have to agree. It's tough to go back to at this point. If I want Civ I'm more likely to play Civ V because it's a much better game nowadays. But maybe after this expansion (and future expansions.. Civ V got a ton of support) I'll go back to it. It's not a bad game at all.. I just prefer Civ V.

And the core game is free to play for the weekend on Steam by the way.

I'm hoping that this raises the level of play as well because Civ:BE didn't turn out to be the experience that I was looking for. It has none of the depth or the narrative of Alpha Centauri. It doesn't even try to be a fair spiritual successor to it either.

And I really wish that Firaxis had found a way to merge BE and Starships together. Because separately they both seem like unfinished concepts.

It's a shame too because the music and sound of this game coming out of my desktop's soundbar is beautiful.

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: i've been on about 7 types of anti depressants in the last 5 years. lol. it's anecdotal, but they work. they just usually come with some shitty side effect. (9 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Now with that said.. there's no cure. Most of these disorders are poorly understood, as is brain chemistry. And people like Chris Cornell were being treated. But results vary. Better than a sugar pill (9 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: that's why i said "can" there are instances of people having better results from a placebo than that of legit medication. i never said it was a replacement for it though. (9 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Medicine is heavily skewed towards evidence here. We make pharmaceutical companies jump through hoops to prove efficacy and safety. *Not* with perfect results.. but it's pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
