Firaxis Games hosted a mega panel at PAX Prime 2015 last month, giving attendees a look at XCOM 2 and Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide. A video of the panel was released today by 2K Games and is posted below.
Hosted by XCOM 2 creative director Jake Solomon and art director Greg Foertsch, along with Beyond Earth’s co-lead designers Will Miller and David McDonough, both teams discussed various approaches to design and provided new information on each title.
In the video, you’ll get a look at Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide’s new diplomacy system and hybrid affinities, as well as the new alien enemies in XCOM 2 called the Faceless.
Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide will be released on October 9, and XCOM 2 releases on February 5, 2016.
