2K opened up digital pre-orders today for Firaxis Games' Civilization: Beyond Earth, revealing the bonuses one will get for committing early to the anticipated strategy game.

By pre-ordering the game, you'll receive the Exoplanets Map Pack, a bundle of six custom maps "inspired by real-world exoplanets." Each map features a specialized script that produces randomized geographic layouts each time you start a new game, allowing for tons of replayability. Below are 2K's descriptions of the six exoplanets:

  • Kepler 186f: This lush forest planet is one of the oldest known Earth-like planets. 
  • Rigil Khantoris Bb: Orbiting the closest star to the solar system, the historical records of this arid continental planet’s settlement are well-preserved. 
  • Tau Ceti d: This planet of seas and archipelagos features a booming biodiversity and a wealth of resources. 
  • Mu Arae f: Tidally locked in orbit around a weak star, the southern hemisphere of this planet is a blistering desert where the sun never sets, while the northern hemisphere is perpetually in frozen darkness. 
  • 82 Eridani e: An alien world of scarce water and wracked by tectonic forces. 
  • Eta Vulpeculae b: A mysterious new discovery with unknown terrain.

Civilization: Beyond Earth is available for pre-purchase at Steam, which unlike some retailers will charge you full price at checkout.
