Hexchat: Watch Civ: Beyond Earth's Panel Discussion

30 minutes of panel chat

Perhaps I'm unfairly stereotyping Civilization fans, but I broadly imagine that they're the type who'll eagerly watch a panel of developers talk about the next game for half an hour, then perhaps rewatch it, wringing every last fact and morsel of information into their dry eyes. What I'm trying to say is, the panel discussion where Civilization: Beyond Earth was revealed is now online in talkie format, and I imagine you might like to watch it so I'm posting about it on Rock, Paper, Shotgun where you might see it.

Beyond Earth, if you missed the announcement is essentially a follow-up to the revered Alpha Centauri brought into the Civ brand. Firaxis don't have the rights to AC, see? It blasts Civ-y 4X strategy off into deep space to discover mankind's future, perhaps making peace with nature and playing about with our genes, going all cyborg and developing AI, or being a big space-baby and pretending everything was fine with how we were on Earth.

But look, who needs me to crudely summarise this when the developers are capable of speech?
