Humankind is now on Game Pass and Xbox

Explore, Expand, Exploit, Exterminate. It’s a set of terms that fans of the 4X genre will be used to, most likely in the Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise. With Civilization VI available on console, Amplitude Studios and Aspyr Studios thought it was only right to throw their hat in the ring. Enter HUMANKIND Console Edition on Game Pass, Xbox and PlayStation. Bringing with it the opportunity to shape the entire world’s history as you see fit.

It’s Your Xbox Story

Since its release on PC in August of 2021, many have enjoyed the ability to create their own civilisation in HUMANKIND. They would have been found invading other areas and waging wars against fellow societies. Of course, that is if you want to be aggressive. Perhaps you can find a way for the entire world to live in harmony? Available for the first time on console – on Xbox, Game Pass and PlayStation – HUMANKIND Console Edition combines 60 historical cultures across time to create the ultimate tactical-strategy title. 

After customising your own leader, it is up to you to shape your own world. Make tough decisions, experience revolutionary scientific breakthroughs, and show all of this off to others in expansive online multiplayer.

Packs Upon Packs!

If you want to add even more of Earth’s societal history into your game, then make sure to pick up the HUMANKIND – Heritage Edition. 

This includes three fun DLC packs – the Cultures of Africa Pack, Cultures of Latin America Pack, and Notre-Dame Pack. The amount of content included there will be huge. 

And tons of features of Humankind on Game Pass

Each culture will add its own special gameplay layer, leading to near-endless outcomes.

Will you be the one to leave the deepest mark on the world?
  • MASTER TACTICAL BATTLES ON LAND, SEA & AIR – Each battle in HUMANKIND™ plays out like a mini turn-based board game on top of the actual world map.
