A few months after its Humankind release, the 4K developed by Amplitude Studio unveils its first DLC: Culture of Africa. This bundle that will let players create even more storylines will arrive on January 20 on Steam, Microsoft Store, and the Epic Games Store.
Humankind, the test of which we offered you a few months ago, will soon be enriched with lots of new content.
Currently, this Historical turn-based strategy game includes 10 cultures per era, the latter being deployed from neolithic period to the contemporary period, Passing by the Middle Age.
This DLC will add 6 new cultures to this roster covering all eras, from new natural and cultural wonders, independent peoples as well as 15 new narrative events.
Era 1 – Bantu (Expansionist) The Bantu expansion is a hypothetical series of major migrations of an original Ntu speaking group, from Central and West Africa to sub-Saharan Africa. Era 2 – Garamantes (Agrarian) The Garamantes emerged as a major regional people in the middle of the second century AD. Their growth and expansion rely on a large and complex qanat irrigation system (called foggaras in Berber), supporting a strong agricultural economy and a large population. Era 3 – Swahili (Marchand) The rise of the city-states of the Swahili coast can be largely attributed to the region’s significant participation in a trading network that spanned the Indian Ocean. Era 4 – Maasai (Agrarian) A fierce pastoral people speaking Nilotic languages, rather than Bantu or Swahili. For the Maasai, achieving warrior status meant killing a lion alone with a spear. Era 5 – Ethiopians (Militarist) During the scramble for Africa, Ethiopia and Liberia are the only nations that have preserved their sovereignty against the colonization of European powers. By integrating the natural cliffs and ledges in the creation of the fortresses, Ethiopia was able to repel the majority of the colonial forces. Era 6 – Nigerians (Agrarian) Nigeria brings together a wide variety of cultures under the rule of one state. The variety of its relief and the abundance of hydraulic resources offer significant agricultural possibilities and make it one of the largest producers in West Africa.
The wonders to discover will be those from Kilimanjaro, Victoria Falls, Rock of Zuma, Lake Natron and the Great Mosque of Djenné.
This African Culture DLC will be available January 20 for € 8.99.
