is one of my favorite games. If you add up all the thousands of hours I’ve spent playing video games over the past 40 or so years, the six main entries in this series
(along with Civilization: Revolution on my iPhones) would dominate that pie chart.
But I haven’t played as much of Civilization VI
as I have older games in the series. It just doesn’t have that same consistent pull, that cliche “just one more turn” feeling. I’ll get into it for a couple of weeks, and then I’ll walk away for a month or more.
It’s time for a shakeup in this style of strategy games.
But here is where Amplitude separates itself from Firaxis. With Humankind, you’re going to be able to blend cultures and nations. You might start with an Egyptian civilization, but it may end up adding elements of Chinese and Viking cultures.
I’m excited about this. Amplitude’s Endless Legend is one of the best strategy games of the past five years. I hope it’s up for the challenge.
