'Humankind' Comes To Playstation And Xbox Consoles In November, Rolls Out Cultures Of Latin America DLC, Bolivar Patch - Trailer

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.

Amplitude Studios announced that Humankind will be coming to Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 on November 4, 2022, and pre-orders are available now!

They also announced (and released!) the game’s 2nd DLC on PC, which will allow players to enjoy the rich history of Latin America with 6 new cultures. There’s also a juicy free update we’re calling the “Bolivar Patch”.

We are extremely excited to be bringing the game to a wider audience, and we hope that console players will love having the opportunity to answer the age-old question: How far will you push Humankind?

"As big fans of Humankind, we're ecstatic to partner with Sega and Amplitude to bring this amazing game to new audiences. With our history in this space, we know that we'll be able to deliver a deep strategy experience that really shines on consoles," said Aspyr studio Senior Director of Business Development Michael Blair.

For those who fancy a trip to Latin America, tide yourselves over with a visit from the comfort of your home! Expand your Humankind experience with the “Cultures of Latin America” DLC pack, which includes:

  • 6 New Cultures: Caralans, Nazca, Taíno, Inca, Argentinians, and Cubans
  • 6 New Wonders: Pyramid of the Sun – Teotihuacan, Maracana Stadium, Salar de Uyuni, Salto Angel, Lençóis Maranhenses, and the Atacama Desert.
  • 9 Independent Peoples
  • 15 Narrative Events
  • 30+ New in-game themed music tracks composed by Arnaud Roy

“Cultures of Latin America” is available now on Steam and Epic Games Store for £6.99/$8.99/€8.99.

Major Game Update – “Bolivar Patch”

And for our last bit of news – We’ve also released a major game update today that will bring many community-requested features and changes to the game. Just to name a few:

  • Reworked surrender system
  • Rebalanced war support modifiers
  • Infrastructure yield previews
  • Unique wonder effects

.. and many more!

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!

Currently available on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store) and Google Stadia, Humankind is coming to Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4 and PS5 on November 4, 2022.
