  • Tau Ceti d: This planet of seas and archipelagos features a booming biodiversity and a wealth of resources.
  • Mu Arae f: Tidally locked in orbit around a weak star, the southern hemisphere of this planet is a blistering desert where the sun never sets, while the northern hemisphere is perpetually in frozen darkness.
  • 82 Eridani e: An alien world of scarce water and wracked by tectonic forces.
  • Eta Vulpeculae b: A mysterious new discovery with unknown terrain.

    I spent 500 hours on CIV5. Such an amazing experience and with CIV BE with futuristic setting i’m going to spend even more time.

    Hope this has the same spec requirements as Civ V, I sank so many hours into that game. I just hope I can do the same with this game on my low-end machine.
