2K and Firaxis Games today announced pre-purchase details for Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide.

Players who pre-purchase the game will receive a 10% discount on their purchases. Rising Tide is currently in development for Windows PC, as well as Mac and Linux through Aspyr Media, and scheduled for worldwide release on all platforms on October 9, 2015.

Complementing the Rising Tide pre-purchase news, players can also take advantage of the following Beyond Earth offers:

The Exoplanets Map Pack features six custom maps inspired by real exoplanets, including:
  • Kepler 186f: This lush forest planet is one of the oldest known Earth-like planets;
  • Rigil Khantoris Bb: Orbiting the closest star to our solar system, the historical records of this arid continental planet’s settlement are well-preserved;
  • Tau Ceti d: This planet of seas and archipelagos features a booming biodiversity and wealth of resources;
  • Mu Arae f: Tidally locked in orbit around a weak star, the southern hemisphere of this planet is a blistering desert where the sun never sets, while the northern hemisphere is perpetually in frozen darkness;
  • 82 Eridani e: An alien world of scarce water and wracked by tectonic forces;
  • Eta Vulpeculae b: A mysterious new discovery with unknown terrain.
New players who participate in the free-to-play weekend on Steam will have until 1:00 p.m. EDT on Monday, August 17, 2015 to purchase Civilization: Beyond Earth or the Civilization Beyond Earth: The Collection for more than 10% off, and retain their in-game progress.
