By   /   Feb 6, 2015

Sid Meier’s Starship is being released later this year and will require you to customize your spaceships throughout the game.

To give you an idea of how to customize a ship, a new video has been posted online. The whole process is narrated by the iconic Sid Meier himself along with Pete Murray from Firaxis Games.

Customization depends on your strategy in combat, and you will have to understand your enemies weaknesses and strengths to build your fleet accordingly.

There is a range of weapons that can be used in the ships you build. There are offensive weapons and defensive weapons to choose from and all of them were thoroughly explained by Sid Meier in the video above.

Moreover, towards the end he answers a couple of fan questions from a recent Twitch stream. Starships takes place in the same universe as Civilization Beyond Earth. However, it feature different planets and enemies.

Players will use fleets of spaceships to explore different galaxies and come in contact with a number of different civilizations. Sid Meier says the story will take humanity further into the future.

There aren’t any alien races in the game but human race has evolved and people have changed. Still, they are far away from looking like creepy aliens.

Sid Meier’s Starships is heading our way in Spring for PC, Mac and iOS.
