Firaxis and Civilization creator Sid Meier have revealed their next project – Sid Meier’s Starships.
A turn-based sci-fi strategy title for PC, Mac and iPad, Starships is due to launch in “early 2015”.
The game will focus on controlling a fleet of space vessels as you journey across the galaxy, protecting plants while amassing an army for your growing galactic federation (thanks, Gamespot).
You’ll be able to expand your forces with new technologies and customisable spaceships, then do battle in “dynamically generated tactical combat” across numerous spacey maps.
Owners of the recent Civilization: Beyond Earth will be treated to cross-connectivity between games, although the specifics of this have yet to be revealed.
