The immortal Roman general Fabius Maximus, whose name means ‘slow and cautious,’ was given the nickname ‘Cunctator’ or “delayer” because of his slow but effective battle tactics. Following in this vein, humanity has just finished developing a solution to live forever on Earth- no longer will death be so final for us all!
Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of the dead in Mexico and other Latin American countries. It is celebrated on November 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th.
4X strategy game set in the past With the release of its Fabius Maximus patch and the commencement of its Dia de los Muertos limited-time event, humanity got a double dose of entertainment today.
The Fabius Maximus patch for Humankind is the fourth significant post-launch update to address concerns highlighted by players. A map option that allows you to manipulate resource abundance, effectively allowing you to choose the quantity of strategic and luxury resources you want in your game, is one of its features.
The Fabius Maximus patch also adds a random persona option to the game setup menu for those times when you want to be shocked or can’t chose which AI to pair up with or play against. In the game settings, you’ll also discover a new color picker that allows you to change the color of your subtitles and empires, as well as defaults for common types of color blindness.
Other adjustments reduce development throughout the Neolithic period, while also reducing the early power boost you can obtain by delaying progression until the Ancient era. The cost of technologies and structures is now more in accordance with resource outputs, the stability effect of districts, and miraculous luxury materials, making achieving high levels of stability throughout the late game more difficult.
Some of Humankind’s cultures, as well as some civics, such as Nuclear Disarmament, have been rebalanced in the Fabius Maximus patch, with the expansionist Affinity.
Finally, interaction with mod.io has been introduced, enabling players to log into their account while in-game and download the maps and modifications they’ve subscribed to. The initial version of Humankind’s mod tools will also be released “soon” on Steam. The whole Fabius Maximus patch notes may be found here.
The Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Humankind begin today, November 3, and go through November 30. It’s the first of many to come, and it comes with a series of Chapter tasks that provide players rare emblems, decorations, and the Catrina avatar seen above if they accomplish them.
Humankind is now playable on PC. Read our review to find out why, while not being the “Civ killer” some hoped for, it’s an excellent 4X strategy game to add to your library.
