Sega diffuse une première bande-annonce très originale pour présenter son futur 4X qui marquera les premiers pas du bien connu studio parisien Amplitude dans le domaine des jeux historiques.
Intitulé sobrement Humankind, Humanité en VF, ce 4X permettra de créer et diriger sa civilisation depuis l’âge du bronze jusqu’à l’âge moderne. En combinant 60 cultures historiques différentes le jeu devrait permettre un très grand nombre de variations, un million a priori, la Renommée sera un nouveau type de condition de victoire, prenant en compte les actions accomplies, les choix moraux, les bataille livrées, et le jeu comportera une dimension tactique, le joueur devant prendre en compte l’élévation du terrain, la construction de cités, et d’autres facteurs pour l’emporter au combat.
Au passage voici aussi une première série de belles captures d’écrans montrant des graphismes soignés, et un style qui évite de tomber dans le genre caricatural. Tant mieux.
HUMANKIND World Premiere
Some of you have grown suspicious that we might be working on a new project. Well, you were right!
We’ve been dreaming about making this game ever since we founded the studio. Our plans for this game are highly ambitious, and we finally feel that we’re in a place to do it justice. We hope that everything we’ve learned from you guys and by making Endless Space and Endless Legend will help us to make our biggest and best game yet.
Today we are very, very excited to present to you our magnum opus: Humankind.
It’s a historical turn-based strategy game in which you will be combining historical cultures to create your own civilization as you lead your people from the Bronze to the Modern age.
Here’s what you can expect when you launch your very first game of Humankind:
– One million civilizations – Combine 60 different historical cultures from accross the heritage of humanity. Begin as Ancient Egypt, then evolve into the Romans, the Khmers, or perhaps the Vikings—the choice is up to you. Each culture brings its own special gameplay layer, leading to near-endless outcomes.
– More than history, your story — You’ll be facing real historical events & figures, making great scientific discoveries, and visiting the wonders of the world. Shape your people’s beliefs and confront other players. Every decision you will make will add flourish to your story.
– In the eyes of posterity– The journey matters more than destination. Fame is a new and unifying victory condition. Every great deed you accomplish, every moral choice you make, every battle won will build your fame and leave a lasting impact on the world. The player with the most fame will win the game.
– A tactical world – Show off your tactical skills by mastering terrain elevation, city-building, full tactical battles and warfare. Choose the high ground for your city, and it will be harder to siege. Deploy your archers in the woods to avoid stampeding horsemen. Call upon your allies to help you in times of need and transform an epic battle into a full-scale multiplayer world war!
These features are, of course, just the tip of the iceberg and we can’t wait to reveal more to you as we go on this journey together! The game will be coming out in 2020, you can follow along here, on the game Steam page, or on the official website for updates & news.
We’re also on all socials with the username @humankindgame.
Finally, we also want to express that we’re also still working on Endless stuff, and that there’s lots of exciting things to be expecting on that front as well! Not least starting with the next major expansion for Endless Space 2, more on that here for those who missed it.
Thank you all for your support.
Hope you enjoy!
