Check Out the Opening Cinematic of Civilization: Beyond Earth

Nothing quite gets me like space exploration and epic sci-fi settings. So it comes as no surprise to me that I’m totally in love with this new Civilization: Beyond Earth video that shows off the game’s opening cinematic.

Channeling a little of it’s inner Interstellar teaser, we get to see humanity on hard times in this video as people are selected to be rocketed out into space and find a new home for our species to inhabit. In a touching bit, a daughter is separated from her father as he watches from the distance as her shuttle shoots out of our atmosphere. It’s a beautiful short that is excellently narrated, just falling shy of being perfect if it had included a shot of someone being eaten by the game’s space worm creatures.

Drawing my factions destiny in the stars is much more up my alley than making Gandhi nuke the Iroquois nation, so I can’t wait to try out Civilization: Beyond Earth next week. Get ready to explore the galaxy when Civilization: Beyond Earth launches on October 24th.
