Watch the cinematic intro sequence for Sid Meier’s Starships™, a new turn-based, adventure-driven interstellar strategy game from Sid Meier, creator of the award-winning Sid Meier’s Civilization® series. Coming Spring 2015!
Gamestop has more details on the game, including new of a crossover between Beyond Earth and Starships.
In the game, you’ll control a fleet of starships as you journey through the galaxy to complete missions, protect planets and their inhabitants, and build a planetary federation.
As you trek through the stars, you’ll be challenged to expand your federation’s influence and reach. You’ll also amass futuristic technology and take part in turn-based combat using a deep roster of customizable ships, some of which you can see in the image gallery above.
2K adds that the missions you’ll take on have their own unique maps, featuring “dynamically generated tactical combat” that should boost the game’s replayability.
2K also teases that Beyond Earth and Starships will feature cross-connectivity for people who own both games. The developer isn’t talking specifics, but says that this integration will “enhance and expand upon both game experiences.”
Sid Meier’s Starships is scheduled for release in Spring 2015.
