Sid Meierís Civilization: Beyond Earth Details

GameSpot has a preview of Sid Meierís Civilization: Beyond Earth, confirming the report that a new installment in Firaxis' space strategy series is coming as a PC-exclusive, kicking off a Next Big Game series that will unveil more about plans for the game over the coming days. Forbes reports it will come to Windows, Linux, and OS X as part of Take Two's fall 2014 lineup. Here's a trailer posted by Joystiq, and here's more on the game from GameSpot:

Affinities. Non-linear research. Satellites. Armed with these new features and others, Sid Meierís Civilization: Beyond Earth is much more than "Civilization in space" or "Alpha Centauri 2." "While Alpha Centauri is in our DNA," explained Shirk, "we also made those games many years ago. Theyíre games we love, and that our fans love, but we wanted to approach [Beyond Earth] in a completely fresh fashion. Both games share some similarities--theyíre both sim games about sending humanity into space--but in terms of being a strategy game, they donít have much in common. We set out to create a completely new game, and we think a lot of the comparisons between this game and Alpha Centauri will be left behind as people see all the thing that are coming into play that makes this a completely new experience."
