Civilization: Beyond Earth Walkthrough

Civilization: Beyond Earth created by Firaxis Games.

The latest in a long line of classic simulation games, Civilization: Beyond Earth was released on October 24, 2014 in North America. An extreme variant on the game engine pioneered by Civilization V, Beyond Earth removes the action from Earth and plops it onto a foreign planet, moving away from the classical-to-modern model of the older games and tapping technologies and scenarios found only in science fiction. A mixture of colony building, diplomacy, warfare, and ethics, Civilization: Beyond Earth is a strong contender for one of the best Civilization games ever created. (Even if it's arguably just an extensive mod for Civ V.)

Below is a listing of articles and walkthroughs for Civilization: Beyond Earth. It takes a long time to get through a session, so the completed walkthrough will probably take a while to craft. Just sayin'.

  1. I'm interested in getting your take on this game. I don't have the computer for it, currently...but it sure sounds like the old "Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri" game, which was fantastic...an extension of Civ 2, I think, assuming a space victory.

    I found your website as I was playing through Alpha Sapphire (all these Alpha games). Enjoying your walkthroughs....

    1. I've only played a little bit of Alpha Centauri, so I wouldn't be able to make an apt comparison between the two. (Or draw comparisons with Civ 2, for that matter. I came in at the third instalment.) It's really just a re-skin of Civ 5 with enough new elements to make it seem like a unique game. It's worth getting if you don't already have Civ 5, I suppose, though I'm not sure which I ultimately find more enjoyable. Have to get back to Beyond Earth and finish the remaining articles some day, speaking of which...

      And thanks! Hope the website's been of use to you. I'll keep putting out more walkthroughs if you keep reading 'em.
