News that Humankind is coming to consoles is no longer new, but a new ESRB rating indicates the game is also heading to Nintendo Switch.
humanity had big news at the Summer Game Fest in the sense that the game that is currently only on PC is coming to consoles. Although the announcement earlier this month marked the arrival of humanity on the Xbox and PlayStation consoles, it looks like it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch as well.
Hailed as one of the best strategy and simulation games of 2021, humanity feels a bit like a Civ game, but with one big difference. Instead of trying to take over the world, players in this title are trying to get as much fame as possible for their civilizations. The game launched last year on PC and for Stadia, but will make the jump to consoles later in 2022.
A recent ESRB rating of humanity indicates that the lack of announcement for the Switch was either a mistake or a bit of information Nintendo hoped to hold back and only announce during one of its own Nintendo Direct presentations. While the next one hasn’t been announced yet, there are rumors and rumors of another Nintendo Direct coming sometime this month.
Consider humanity Coming to Sony and Xbox consoles this fall, it seems unlikely that Nintendo would waste any time making it clear that the turn-based strategy game is also coming to Switch. It wouldn’t make sense to wait too far outside the news from the other ports to announce an additional platform, despite the news that Nintendo is going to skip Gamescom this year.
That humanity coming to consoles wasn’t the only title news coming out of the Summer Game Fest. The game is also getting a Cultures of Latin America update that will include six new cultures, new natural and built wonders, and 15 different narrative events. This new DLC is the latest addition to the game in the same sort of format as the Cultures of Africa DLC.
It was also announced that the console release of humanity comes packed with new Cultures of Latin America DLC and the previous DLC packs in the game’s “Heritage Edition” for $59.99. There will also be a base game that doesn’t come with any of the DLC for $49.99. Whether people will also be able to play the game on Switch when the console versions arrive this fall could be confirmed shortly.
humanity is currently available on PC and Google Stadia and coming to consoles on November 4.
