Developer Firaxis has confirmed a release date for Sid Meier's Starships.
The game will be released on PC, Mac and iPad on March 12th, PC Gamer reports. It has a US price of $15, with the UK price having yet to be announced.
The game, announced last month, is being developed by Meier and a small team at Firaxis. In it players will control a fleet of vessels tasked with establishing a planetary federation, protecting planets and engaging in deep-space combat. Some of the missions will be dynamically generated, too, adding to the game's replayability.
It will also offer an as-of-yet unspecified level of cross-connectivity with Civilization: Beyond Earth, the capacity of which was added in to Beyond Earth via a recent patch.
