Sid Meier Taking Us Beyond Earth In New Civilization Title This Fall

No, Firaxis. No, you can’t do this to me. I barely managed to pull myself out of the hole I was in last time. Now there’s space involved… Fine, I accept my fate. …. *ahem* So this weekend at PAX East, 2K and Firaxis announced the next big title in the Civilization franchise. Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth takes off from where most Civilization games end–as the human race sets off into space to find new worlds to colonize. The launch trailer above certainly sets the scene for a very different Civilization setting than we’ve seen before…

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth is scheduled to become a massive time sink for Windows, Mac and Linux this fall.

Google Announces Android Wear

In a move surprising to pretty much no one, Google has announced their “Android Wear” that plans to bring the OS to various wearable devices. First up will be a series of watches, coming in an array of different styles and manufactured by several companies.

The new mobile platform is designed to offer notifications, messages and an array of social networking features as well as incorporating the new “Google Now” system–allowing users to set alarms, ask questions, get reminders based on previous activities, and even control other devices simply by saying “Ok Google.” With LG and Motorola both releasing Android-enabled watches later in the year, this could be the next big step for Google OS. Google is already releasing developer preview information about Android Wear, and you can check out their promotional video after the jump.

Bethesda Unleashes Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition And New Trailer

I’ve made no secret of the amount of time I’ve spent in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (pushing 400 hours now); so it’s fair to say I’ve been looking at The Elder Scrolls Online with “interest” (read: barely contained anticipation). Today, Bethesda has rewarded that interest with details of the The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition; available for pre-purchase now on the newly launched The Elder Scrolls Online Store (as well as pre-ordering through retailers), this edition comes in both physical and digital flavors. The Physical Imperial Edition contains a 12” statue featuring Molag Bal, the Improved Emperor’s Guide to Tamriel, a physical map of Tamriel, and a heap of digital content including the ability to play as an Imperial, a white Imperial horse, a Mudcrab pet, and special Rings of Mara that give you experience bonuses when playing with a friend (the Digital Imperial Edition contains all the digital content detailed for the Physical Edition). In addition to this, you can check out the epic 8 minute Arrival cinematic trailer above.

The Elder Scrolls Online is available to pre-purchase now on The Elder Scrolls Online Store and is due out 4/4/14 for PC and Mac, with Xbox One and PS4 to follow in June. You can find more info after the jump.
