Sid Meier’s Civilization Beyond Earth finally has a release date, which was announced by its publisher 2K Games earlier today, granting the official release date of October 24th 2014.

“Sid Meier’s Civilization Beyond Earth will be a turn-based strategy game played on a hexagonal-based grid building upon the engine of its predecessors. In previous Civilization titles, players selected from historical empires led by historical figures, each with preset personalities.”

“In Beyond Earth, players make choices at the beginning of the game, including what organization backed their expedition, what kind of vessel they used to reach the planet, and who and what they brought to the new world, allowing players to create a customized civilization of their own.”

Once it launches the game will be available to play on the PC for around $50 according to various sites, however as of yet we haven’t seen any details for a Mac launch.

Early Adopters of the game will also get a range of pre-order bonuses that includes something called the Exoplanets Map Pack, which features a total of six custom maps for the game.
