Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth is now up for preordering on Steam, and as you might expect that means preorder bonuses. And the Exoplanets Map pack is actually kind of cool: It's a collection of six custom maps inspired by real-world exoplanets.
Obviously some liberties have been taken, but a quick trip to Wikipedia (a couple of others, here and here ) confirms that the six planets in the pack do have a real-world basis. But we're not here to talk about the scientific accuracy of videogame DLC, we're here to talk about a preorder bonus. So here's what you get:
"Specialized scripts produce randomized geographic layouts each time a new game begins, allowing for even more replayability on new alien worlds," according to the content pack description on Steam .
Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth launches on October 24.
