Humankind, the upcoming 4x strategy game, will be released in April 2021. Stadia players will be able to play a free 100-turn gameplay scenario right now to try out Amplitude Studios’ upcoming game.
In Humankind, players will lead a civilization through six major eras of human history. Through every era, players will select one of ten civilization types based on historical societies and choose how that society will grow and evolve.
Amplitude says there can be a million different civilization patterns players can develop based on the choices players make.
