CIV BE

I know you guys laugh at me for loving my Mac, but I can’t help it. I’m even looking to get a new one at the end of the year – sure I could go PC, but then I’d lose my hipster credibility. But fear not my fellow Mac or Linux users, we can also take over the future world in Civilization: Beyond Earth.

I sat down with Erica Denning from 2K at rAge and I asked her my most burning questions about Civilization: Beyond Earth.

That’s right, even though on Steam the game still only has the Windows icon, the game will actually launch across the personal computer landscape at the same time – coming to Mac and Linux as well.

I was getting worried – all previous Civilization games had come to Mac, and I was getting so sad that this one didn’t appear to be inclusive. Sure, I can play on a PC, but it’s not the same as playing on my Mac. Now I don’t need to fear, and my husband can know his PC gaming time is safe, too.

How excited are you for this game? I can already feel myself getting hooked – that “one more turn” urge is coming and I’m afraid that I will be sacrificing far too many hours to this game. I don’t know how Firaxis gets me so invested in my civilizations, but they really do. I hope the unique mechanics of Civilization: Beyond Earth are even more varied and offer even more replay ability – I believe they will.
