  • Build floating settlements and access natural resources hidden beneath the seas of the alien planet;
  • Shape the diplomatic landscape by upgrading traits, changing diplomatic relationships, and leveraging the benefits of your allies;
  • Play as one of four new factions, including the Al Falah, a group of nomad explorers descended from wealthy and resilient Middle Eastern states;
  • And much, much more – see below for additional details.

2K is also excited to announce that the first gameplay for Rising Tide will be shown at E3 this June; and we will be booking booth appointments soon, so be on the lookout!
