Paris, August 9th, 2021– Amplitude Studios has revealed a lot about what is to be expected from HUMANKIND™ when it launches next week on 17th August. They have called out the 60 different historical cultures that can be combined to create a civilization as unique as you are. After some super quick math, it was deduced those 60 cultures could yield over 1,000,000 different final combinations… they’re actually still working on the final number. It’s a lot. And they’ve hit you with the near Endless Avatar customization options.
So, you know, it’s big, but the Amplitude team wanted to throw some more numbers at you to show you exactly HOW big.
In HUMANKIND you can expect 129 different units to be seen traversing 10 beautifully detailed biomes. Those biomes will play host to 45 different species of animals roaming the wilderness that you’ll end up populating. Achievements and notable moments in history you reach by doing this will be highlighted by one of 700 unique illustrations.
As you grow your civilization and beeline through the 93 techs on offer, you’ll be treated to a 13 ½ hour soundscape, featuring over 1,300 sound files. This ambient noise will be punctuated by Arnaud Roy’s majestic 280-song, 520-minute soundtrack, performed by 63 individual musicians and 20 choir singers.
Your custom avatar, who will evolve with your civilization, will be able to choose from over 122 tailored costumes as they voice their approval or disapproval from over 10,000 voiced lines in-game. The choices you make in the 150 narrative events will further diversify you and your civilization from your competition, particularly in 10-person multiplayer!
It’s a lot to remember, and there’s a whole load more that hasn’t been touched on here or in this handy video entitled, The Scale of HUMANKIND which you can watch here:
HUMANKIND is available for pre-order on PC & Stadia. The game will now also be available for Microsoft Xbox Game Pass from August 17th. The studio can’t wait for you to play and share your experiences with them.
