Mankind is invading Latin America
After African cultures, Mankind is flying towards Latin America this time with a new DLC. Culture of Latin America is actually an appropriate name and will take you on the trail of especially the Incas and Cubans. On the program we find 6 new cultures (Caral, Nazcas, Taïnos, Incas, Argentines and Cubans), 6 wonders (The Pyramid of the Sun, Maracanã Stadium, Salar de Uyuni, Salto Ángel, Lençóis Maranhenses and the Atacama Desert), 9 tribes, 15 narrative events and about thirty unreleased music by Arnaud Roy (regular composer of AMPLITUDE Studios).
Like its predecessor, DLC costs € 8.99 and best of all, is that it is available now on PC. To celebrate it, the expansion even gives a small 10% discount. If you want, you can get it for € 8.09 on Steam until June 23rd.
Direction consoles (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One)
But this is not the only message about humanity. In fact, the title will offer a port on consoles. So far available on PC and Stadia, Humankind will soon be available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One gamers. The Aspyr studio (Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake) is in charge of the port, and they have obviously made good progress. We already have the release date: next November 4. Also note that it will be available day one on the Xbox Game Pass console (the PC version is already in the Xbox Game Pass PC Catalog).
Add to that a free update allows for an overhaul of the surrender system, the ability to preview infrastructure performance or even balancing of war support modifiers, and you have a more than interesting segment for Humankind players. These various changes had also been requested by the latter.
About the summer games party
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on yet another world-class event: Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcing video games coming this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now indispensable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured amazing photos from the Elden Ring; so inevitably the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The summer game party is on Thursday 9 June at 20.00. The show will again be followed by a Day of the Devs session dedicated to the independent scene.
How to follow Summer Game Fest 2022?
At JV, we will respond live to announcements from the LeStream channel along with especially Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée. The show will also be directly visible as a teaser on JV’s website. And for those who prefer to read, you will of course find our news throughout the conference. There will also be a written summary
