2K and Firaxis Games have just announced Sid Meier’s Starships, a new turn-based strategy game set in the same universe as Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth.
Firaxis Games have said that Sid Meier’s Starships will give players the ability to fully control and customize a fleet of their own. With this fleet players can complete missions such as defending planets, form their own federation, and undertake research to discover new technologies to help along the way. Connectivity between Civilization: Beyond Earth and Starships is said to also be a feature.
Sid Meier’s Starships is set for release “early this year”, and will be available for PC, Mac and iPad. Check out the cinematic trailer above. You can also check out a few new screenshots and some concept art after the break.
