'Humankind' Playable Free Demo Available Now - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 18, 2021 @ 8:40 a.m. PST

Humankind is a historical turn-based strategy where you'll be leading your people from the Neolithic era to the modern age, combining cultures as you progress through the eras to create your own unique civilization.

What if you could rewrite the entire narrative of human history? How would you change the course of Humankind? These are the questions at the center of Humankind.

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.

The weather is turning colder, which means a wonderful opportunity to stay inside and play more games! We hope you'll count our turn-based historical strategy epic Humankind among them, and try the brand-new demo, out now. (...Unless you're in the Southern hemisphere, in which case we hope you stay inside and beat the heat with some Humankind!)

New Patch - End Game Conditions

Yesterday, we released the latest patch for Humankind which will allow players to win (or lose...) the game on their own terms!

Players can set custom end game conditions under the "Pace" section of the menu when creating a new game.

Whichever way you choose to play, we hope you have fun taking your empire to the moon and beyond!

The Ampliteam

Here's what you can expect the day you launch your first game of Humankind:

  • One million civilizations– Create your own unique civilization by combining 60 different historical cultures from across the heritage of humanity. Begin as Ancient Egypt, then evolve into the Romans, the Khmers, or perhaps the Vikings—the choice is up to you. Each culture brings its own special gameplay layer, leading to near-endless outcomes.
  • More than history, it's your story - Face real historical events and figures, make great scientific discoveries, and visit the wonders of the world. Shape your people's beliefs and confront other players. Every decision you make adds a flourish to your story.
  • In the eyes of posterity– The journey matters more than destination. Fame is a new and unifying victory condition. Every great deed you accomplish, every moral choice you make, every battle won will build your fame and leave a lasting impact on the world. The player with the most fame will win the game.
  • A tactical world – Show off your tactical skills by mastering terrain elevation, city-building, full tactical battles and warfare. Choose the high ground for your city, and it will be harder to siege. Deploy your archers in the woods to avoid stampeding horsemen. Call upon your allies to help you in times of need and transform an epic battle into a full-scale multiplayer world war!

Humankind is now available on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store) and Google Stadia.
