Can you lead your people to glory over the course of human history? Can you leave your mark on the world in a journey from the Neolithic to the Industrial era? Find out by playing the Closed Beta of Humankind, Amplitude Studios’ upcoming historical turn-based strategy game.

For the first time, play up to 200 turns of Humankind, including 10 new industrial era cultures, along with planes, trains, and artillery. This represents 5 out of the 6 total eras that will be in the game at launch.
