UNLEASH YOUR INNER DIPLOMAT IN HUMANKIND’S FIRST EXPANSION, “TOGETHER WE RULE”
“Together We Rule” is focused on Diplomacy and Espionage and introduces the Congress of Humankind, Embassies, Agents, a new Diplomatic culture affinity, plus a major free update focused on stealth and independent people coming Fall 2022.
PARIS, September 7th – In HUMANKIND™, our turn-based historical strategy game, we’ve always wanted there to be more ways to win than simple military domination. And while the game’s unified victory condition, Fame, was a first step towards that, we’re now ready to take things much further with the introduction of our first major expansion, Together We Rule. New features like the Congress of Humankind, Embassies, and Agents will help players see the world in a new light and resolve conflicts differently.
TOGETHER WE RULE CONTENT
Here’s a more detailed look at what’s included in the Expansion:
- Congress of Humankind - Get involved in an inter-empire forum with the Congress of Humankind. The congress will allow players to vote and decide on global doctrines and arbitrate international conflicts together.
- Embassy - Use this new Quarter to sign agreements that are beneficial for both empires, like joint training or research agreements. Or use your Leverage currency to force an empire to take specific actions to your benefit, like lowering war support or enforcing demands.
- Agents - Use this new unit family to gather Leverage. They will also allow you to infiltrate, sabotage and disinform other empires.
- Diplomatic Affinity + 6 New Cultures - The new Diplomatic Affinity allows its cultures to have a more active role in the world’s diplomacy.
- Their Active Ability allows them to demilitarize a territory for 10 turns, while their Passive Ability allows all their units, beyond just agents, to collect Leverage.
- The 6 new cultures are the Sumerians, the Han Chinese, the Bulgarians, the Swiss, the Scots, and the Singaporeans.
- 6 new wonders, new narrative events, new music – Monument Valley, Pamukkale, Chocolate Hills, Eldgjá, Palace of Versailles, and the Congress of Humankind Headquarters.
ADDITIONAL MAJOR FREE UPDATE
Whether players choose to opt for these new diplomatic tools or not, a massive free update for HUMANKIND™ will be released for everyone alongside the expansion pack. It will add new Stealth mechanics, revamp independent peoples, allow for third-party battle re-enforcements, and add new UI options and improvements.
Together We Rule will be coming in Fall 2022.
We hope you enjoy!
