Today, 2K and Firaxis Games have announced the Rising Tide expansion to last year's Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth. Although announced today, it is slated for release in the fall. The expansion is set to add new exploration capabilities such as floating settlements, access to the bottom of seas, as well as the creatures that live deep underwater. The diplomacy system will also get an overhaul to provide more dynamic choices to the player. Of course new factions have also been added, such as the Al Falah, nomad explorers who are descended from the wealthy and resilient Middle Eastern states.

The Windows version of the expansion is currently in development, and developer Aspyr is working on the Mac and Linux ports, which should both also launch this Fall. It will cost $29.99. The first gameplay of Rising Tide will be shown off at E3, but if you cannot wait that long, there will be a Firaxis livestream at 2 PM EST today, with more information revealed during it.
