Beyond Earth takes that struggle away from the semi-familiar trappings of high-school history personalities and in doing so manages to reflect more of the nature of humanity. Removed from the reimagining of a history we all have a degree of familiarity with, Beyond Earth is less about growing to a point we’re all living right now and more about evolving beyond that; beyond this.

It must be an interesting challenge for developers of a series so focused on history to tackle questions of humanity’s future. ...This is a work of speculative fiction that allows the player to speculate for themselves, starting from a similar place each time but potentially reaching vastly different conclusions. It’s also a tightly-designed, well-balanced 4X game that is sure to consume many gamers’ free time in the coming months and years. That’s one bit of speculation I’m confident in.
