Odd... we're supposed to have a culture reveal by now
It seems weird for a European company, but maybe they delayed it till later this week for Columbus/Indigenous Peoples Day.
Unless you're a Spanish company (Spain's national day falls on October 12 for the same reasons), I don't think any European company would bother.
it's coming apparently^^ a little more patience
I assume Soviet Union will come up in Contemporary, since the "culture" in Humankind works as a "trait" you can adopt when entering a new Era; a "Soviet culture" can also cover all the Eastern Bloc regimes/themes (unless the "Communism" ideology works in this way as well).
Switzerland is best kept as a minor culture - and I say that as a Swiss. Though, having said that, there would be quite an argument for Industrial or Modern over the Early Modern or Medieval version. Switzerland grows as a military player until 1515 when we lost the city of Milan to the French. Afterwards, there's reformation and exporting cheese to Germany in the 30-years-war, but really it's the industrial revolution (first Napoleonic Blockade, then Neutrality) that makes Switzerlandt the rich country we are today.
Off the tangent, Soviets can be a culture while at the same time there being a communist ideology. It's about alternate history after all.
The way I see it now is gameplay related. As Industrial and Modern are the last two eras, you probably will transcend a lot from the industrial if you are in the lead. That makes for quite a logical separation into a group one (European nation states) and a group two (post-colonial nations of the world). Though, that reasoning would really mean we will get a tsarist russia and then no soviets later on. Though they can be the exception
Imgur album updated to include the Italians:
My boi now has someone to scream for
There hasn't been any new Humankind content lately besides the culture reveals, so I made a meme template of the image above for you guys. I don't know if the link is public or not.
When you play as Italian in industrial and New Jersey in contemporary
Imgur album updated to include the Mexicans:
BTW, Google smashed their piggybank and will be providing 7 days of Humankind Beta (we think it's OpenDev, but it remains to be seen... TBH at the very least I'd love if they added the updated attack animations as those left a lot to be desired back then) on Stadia starting today.
So if any folks here couldn't get in during the three testing weeks, now's your chance.
Though keep in mind it's Stadia, so if you're not one of the select ones, you'll need a VPN to get in on the fun.
I find it quite odd that Amplitude didn't promote this on any of their social media channels. And I don't know how this demo for Stadia would differ from the OpenDev.
I better try this out and try to post anything we haven't seen so far.
I'm also quite curious about this reddit comment:
We have a release date of April 2021!
The Stadia build is a DIFFERENT OpenDev scenario, where you play as Nubia in the Ancient Era and advance into the Classical Era, picking a new culture. I'm excited to try it out!
And because this is a demo, it is completely free. Just use your normal Google account as your Stadia account and you're good to go.
Wow those are great news!
Sadly Stadia is not available in my country... hopefully this Nubia OpenDev is later made available for other platforms
Love the new artwork for the Greeks. (seen on Steam)
yeah, way better ! so amazing the game continue to be upgraded.
The OpenDev on stadia is free and open to everyone (country which can access to stadia)
It's 100 turns with Nubia I think ? Surely on the same map than Babylonian ?
We have seen all affinities, and a lot of other things.
There is hints in the video about next cultures Modern city looks really cool. Do you see the little cars ?
That's some great news! Looking forward to April, and to the next few days assuming there will be some videos. I'm surprised about the pre-order/deluxe content to be honest, but sure I'll play as Victor Hugo.
