Civilization: Beyond Earth has its first ever gameplay video, coming straight out of the halls of E3 2014.

2K Games has released the video to the public, so that everyone could see some of the new features in the game. These include satellites that grant all sorts of boost to units or cities, quest decisions, a hostile alien race and three new affinities that will help shape humanity’s future.

Co-lead designer Will Miller narrates the 8-minute long video and does an excellent job at explaining everything we see. He also shows us how to free a city from the tyranny of a peaceful and harmonious regime using his army’s superior technology. Truly a wise and benevolent co-lead designer.

Civilization: Beyond Earth also has a new release date in the PC – October 24, 2014. The video’s below.
