The intro cinematic for 2K and Firaxis Games’ Civilization: Beyond Earth has just been released. The cinematic opening is called “The Chosen” and depicts a select few leaving Earth to venture out into the galaxy.

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth is a turn based strategy game, based on the 4X model, that will allow players to colonize an alien planet in a futuristic sci-fi setting. The game is said to be a spiritual successor to the widely praised 1999 game Alpha Centauri, which featured similar gameplay and was also made by Firaxis.

Alongside this new trailer, 2K has announced that those who pre-order Civilization: Beyond Earth will receive the Exoplanets Map Pack for free.

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth will be releasing October 24th worldwide, and will be available on Windows, OS X and Linux.
