About This Game

Getting feedback from our players has always been our way of creating the best games we can. That’s why 10 years ago, we designed the GAMES2GETHER platform and program to fill the missing link between our dev team and our players. Today we continue in that tradition with an all-new gameplay opportunity!

Introducing HUMANKIND™ Closed Beta!

OpenDev is a series of targeted gameplay scenarios that we’ve been introducing to players as our way of collecting feedback from the community to help us to shape the game.

As part of the OpenDev program, the Closed Beta will be available from June 13th at 14:30 PT / 23:30 CEST to June 21st at 14:30 PT / 23:30 CEST.


What is included in the Closed Beta?
• 50 cultures: Play through 5 full gameplay eras or 200 turns, whichever comes first. Each era, you’ll get to choose from among 10 different cultures, each with their own unique gameplay attributes.

• Master battles on land & sea: Industrial era (Era 5) brings new opportunities. Exploit coal and oil to push your economy to new heights of productivity. Build railways to cheaply and quickly move goods and troops. Fight the biggest battles yet, support them with long range artillery bombardment, and take to the skies to keep an eye on your enemies!

• Conduct diplomacy with 7 AI opponents: Test out our contextual diplomacy system and give us some feedback to improve it for release. See how much Fame you can earn and compare scores with your friends!

• Play as Edgar Allan Poe: leave your mark on Humankind as the one of the most influential poet and novelist of his time, author of The Raven and The Fall of the House of Usher. The Edgar Allan Poe avatar will be included in the Day One edition of the game.

• Face your favorite content creators: Lomadiah, Burke Black, ZeratoR and more now have their own avatar in HUMANKIND, each with their distinct personality. Will you earn the most fame against them?
