Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, the latest in a landmark strategy series that spans decades, is less a game of sweeping changes than it is minor tweaks—and that’s a good thing. Civ V, released a lifetime ago (in video game turns) back in 2010, was damn close to perfection and kept gamers—this one included—coming back for hundreds and hundreds of hours. Messing with that formula too much might have been a recipe for disaster. Instead, Firaxis kept what worked and enhanced everything along the way.
It’s been a while, but it’s time once again to return to the Commander’s seat. XCOM 2 is a return to form almost entirely in the best of ways. Firaxis Games has had over three years since it began a successful reboot with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. That said, the developers not only shook the dust off the rebooted product, but reinvigorated it with enhanced features on most of the things that made Enemy Unknown fun. The game is not without flaws and shortcomings, but it has enough quality substance to overcome most of its problems.
Bad news for anyone wanting to fight the turn-based war against the aliens of XCOM 2, as the game has been delayed three months.
Firaxis has announced that the second annual Firaxicon will be heading to the Baltimore Convention Center in just a couple of months.
Fixaxis Games released a new featurette for Civilization: Beyond Earth's upcoming expansion, Rising Tide.
Firaxis Games and 2K are taking the alien war two decades into the future in this announcement trailer for XCOM 2.
Be ready to boldly go where no man has gone before in Civilization: Beyond Earth's upcoming Rising Tide expansion.
If space is the final frontier, Sid Meier's Starships should truly reach for the stars. As a turn-based strategy adventure, the game traverses an inspired and diverse path only to be saddled with a few minor missteps.
Continuing from its newest game, Sid Meier's Starships is the next game coming out from Firaxis Games, but this time it will be taking things to the stars.
With Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth, it looks like the once-grounded strategy series is taking to the stars.
