Humankind console release date November 4, 2022 PS4 PS5 PlayStation 4 5 Xbox One Series X S Cultures of Latin America DLC LATAM launch out now

At Summer Game Fest, publisher Sega and developer Amplitude Studios announced a Humankind console release date of November 4, 2022 on PlayStation 4 (PS4), PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, new DLC pack Humankind: Cultures of Latin America has been revealed and is out now on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, retailing for $8.99 / €8.99 / £6.99. And lastly, Humankind has received a substantial “Bolivar Patch,” which addresses several requests from the community. It’s a good day to be a fan of 4X strategy games.

Port specialist Aspyr, which typically handles Star Wars ports, has developed the console ports of Humankind. The console versions are all available for preorder now, and you can check out the console announcement trailer below.

Meanwhile, the Humankind: Cultures of Latin America DLC contains the following:

  • 6 New Cultures: Caralans, Nazca, Taíno, Inca, Argentinians, and Cubans
  • 6 New Wonders: Pyramid of the Sun – Teotihuacan, Maracana Stadium, Salar de Uyuni, Salto Angel, Lençóis Maranhenses, and the Atacama Desert.
  • 9 Independent Peoples
  • 15 Narrative Events
  • 30+ New in-game themed music tracks composed by Arnaud Roy

And finally, the Humankind “Bolivar Patch” provides many updates to the game, but highlights include a reworked surrender system, rebalanced war support modifiers, infrastructure yield previews, and unique wonder effects. If you played the game in the past but had some issues with it, it’s possible this patch has addressed them.

It’s nice how historical strategy games offer closer looks at cultures that the average person otherwise might not think about much. Personally, as a half Puerto Rican, I think it’s really cool to see the Taíno culture appearing in a video game. PC players can experience all of that today, while console players only have a few months more to wait for the release of Humankind.
