Humankind's Latest Video Focuses On The Art Of War

SEGA has released a new video this week for Humankind which focuses more on the Art of War within the game. This particular video focuses on the basics of Battles in the game, as units are grouped into armies and give the player multiple options to control many units which then deploy them in different ways to fight directly on the map. You'll have full control of exactly where each unit is placed, where they move, and what they attack, and be able to take advantage of different terrains that they'll land on. There's also an auto-resolve button added to the game in case you're not into combat and would rather let the game decide the outcome of what happens. Enjoy the video below!
