The latest addition to the Civilization franchise takes turn-based colonization into space. 9to5Toys Specials currently has Beyond Earth: The Collection for $30, which includes the game, plus the Exoplanets Map Pack and Rising Tide Expansion.
The new game is set in an intergalactic future, when the inhabitants of a barren Earth must go in search of new, alien lands to conquer. The gameplay stays true to the series, but instead of guiding historical events, players must choose an expedition sponsor to establish a cultural identity. Amazing upgrades arrive once your civilization masters the Technology Web, and dynamic Leader Traits affect the whole game world.
Also included in this bundle is Rising Tide, which adds four more factions to join, plus an all-new artifacts system, two new biomes, and hybrid units. Meanwhile, Exoplanets adds six custom maps to explore.
The Collection is usually priced at $60, but you can order now to save 49% off MSRP (Note: this deal is for Mac and Linux only).
