Back arrow (CivBE).png Civilization: Beyond Earth

Biomes determine the look of the planet. There are three planetary biomes in base Civilization: Beyond Earth, with two additional ones coming out with Rising Tide. In the original game, none of these change the geology, biology, or the distribution of resources on the planet in the basic game. In the Rising Tide expansion pack, however, biome selection will determine the behavior, strengths and weaknesses of the inhabiting alien species.
