2K have announced the release date for Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - October 24. Unlike previous titles in the Civilization series, this is a worldwide release date. In addition, a pre-order bonus has been announced - the 'Exoplanets Map Pack'. The official Civilization twitter account clarified that this contains 'six custom maps inspired by real exoplanets'. Steam pre-orders are not yet available, and the Civilization twitter account also noted that 'more pre-order options are coming'. Retailers with whom you can already pre-order the game can be found here. In addition, two new videos have been released on the official Civilization youtube channel. The first is an eight minute long gameplay walkthrough with co-lead designer Will Miller, whilst the second video, entitled 'Inside Look', features brief interviews with Will Miller and the other co-lead designer, David McDonough.
