From Press Release:
Earlier this evening at the Game Awards we were pleased to present the second ever trailer for HUMANKIND, our upcoming turn-based, historical strategy magnum opus.
In Humankind, you’ll be combining different cultures as you progress through the eras to create a civilization that’s as unique as you are. Your goal is to accumulate as much fame – or infamy — as possible. The journey matters more than the destination, and no great deed will go unnoticed.
What’s new in this trailer?
Ever since we trumpeted the news of our Humankind game in August at Gamescom, we have been fielding questions about “Who will we be playing? A king or queen from history?”
Today you get the answer—you will be playing an avatar that you create, that you customize, that you will lead to have the greatest impact on Humankind!
Your Avatar—no, it’s not blue and nine feet tall—will evolve visually over the course of the game according to the way you play, the achievements you earn, and the way you develop your cultures and your civilizations.
Level up your leader via a meta-progression system to unlock custom looks and more that you can show off to strangers, pals and frenemies alike in multiplayer matches up to 8 players.
We also threw in a quick taste of land and naval battles, for good measure.
There’s much more to come in the new year. But for now, just one question left: what will your story be?
Hope you enjoy!
