Civilization: Beyond Earth takes the series into the future In Beyond Earth, players will explore and colonize an alien world. As always, player choice is crucial to the gameplay, as individual decisions will have serious repercussions on how society develops. For example, even the initial crew you choose for the expedition to the new world will have a dramatic impact on the cultural identity that eventually develops--will you have more mercenaries or scientists, for example? What will that ship be equipped with? Titanfall: Expedition coming May The first DLC for Titanfall has been announced at PAX East. "Expedition" will add three maps will be coming in May and it will continue the story told in the game's campaign. PAX South expands to Texas in early 2015 Unable to attend PAX East? Perhaps you didn't live in that part of the world? Well, you'll have yet another chance to attend a gaming convention, as Penny Arcade have announced yet another show: PAX South, debuting in San Antonio in early 2015.
