Humankind is the latest 4X strategy game that aims to take Sid Meier’s Civilization off the top spot. The game was developed by Amplitude Studios who have had a long history of creating some of the best strategy games out there.
However, whilst availability has been limited to OpenDev releases – the official release date has now been announced and fans of the Sega strategy game won’t have to wait too much longer for its official shelving.

Humankind was unveiled some time ago now, sparking plenty of anticipation amongst fans of the strategy game mode. However, it wasn’t until recently that an official release date was set.
That being said, the official release date for Humankind has now been set to August 17th, 2021. It will be available from all major game stores, with pre-orders now live.
Pre-orders for Humankind are now live across all major game stores. The easiest way to pre-order your copy of the game is to simply head on over to the official Humankind webpage and follow the directions to pre-order. Choose your platform and enjoy a £10 discount. It’s as simple as that.
