If you are a Civilization fan who couldn't attend PAX East last weekend, you might be upset you missed the Firaxis panel. Lead designers Dave McDonough and Will Miller were joined by producer Lena Brenk and gameplay designer Anton Strenger to discuss first details about the new title.

2K Games has now made the panel available. One of the highlights of the panel was Miller’s explanation of the team’s inspiration, NASA’s Earthrise photo, and what it means for the hopefulness at the foundation of Beyond Earth’s development.
