There's going to be even more sci-fi-styled Civilization action coming this spring, with a new strategy game coming from legendary game designer Sid Meier picking up where Civilization: Beyond Earth left off.

Announced today at Gamespot, Sid Meier's Starships will have players sending their own fleets of spacecraft out into the cosmos in an effort to create peace—or domination—via a planetary federation. There's also supposedly going to be some connection between Beyond Earth and Starships for those who own both games. Starships hits this spring for PC, Mac and iPad. Head to Gamespot for more details.
