Humankind developers Amplitude has recently announced in a blogpost they are working on adding more modding tools and capabilities to their map editor as soon as possible, and that it is their highest priority at the moment.
Amplitude has elaborated that they are aware the timing did not work out as they had planned for their Day 1 Mod, and that they are still committed to the current scope of their plans.
“We’re still working on the modding tools and the Day 1 mod, though we are focusing on the modding tools first to put a first version of these tools into your hands as soon as possible to empower you to create your own mods,” Amplitude said, “This initial release will have more limited capabilities than what we would like to achieve, but we hope to be able to deliver this together with one of the upcoming patches.”
The blogpost also announced several fixes that are coming soon in their upcoming patches including improved AI behavior, several causes of turns getting stuck, as well as Game Pass members being unable to use multiplayer.
Amplitude has also promised that it’s taking a closer look at many suggestions by the fans, including elements that would add to the in-game diplomacy, pollution, religion, and war resolution. However, they elaborated that these suggestions will require big changes, they will consider these changes carefully and implement them properly with time.
Humankind is a one-of-a-kind turn-based strategy game that lets players rewrite the entire history of mankind, starting as far back as ancient times in Egypt and ultimately leading up to modern times.
Humankind is available now for PC, Xbox Game Pass, and Google Stadia.
