Humankind now available

The long-awaited Sega title Humankind is now available. The game is available to play on Stadia and will be available shortly on GeForce Now. The game is also available via Gamepass for PC but is not available through Xbox’s cloud offering. The game is 4x and is very much like Civilisation and has received generally good reviews. The reviews generally say that the game is solid but may not add anything to the genre as yet.

The Stadia version of Humankind features State Share. This allows other people to play your game from the begining to try and beat your accomplishments. This version of the game also includes special touch controls for people who use Android. The feature is coming to iOS eventually. 9 to 5 Google covered this in more detail and you can check that out here.

In addition to State Share, Stadia is making it easier than ever to play games on your phone with a new input method called direct touch, launching first with HUMANKIND. Direct touch enables you to interact directly with a game using your phone’s touch screen. Instead of using a touch gamepad overlay. For example, direct touch allows players to control the game by tapping, sliding, and pinching the screen with your fingers to directly play the game.

However cross-platform multiplayer is no longer available on the Stadia version of the game. The GeForce Now version will have cross-platform multiplayer but will miss out on the Stadia only features.

HUMANKIND™ is Amplitude Studios’ magnum opus, a Historical Strategy game where YOU will re-write the entire narrative of humankind – a convergence of culture, history, and values that allows you to create a civilization that is as unique as you are. HOW FAR WILL YOU PUSH HUMANKIND?
