''[[Civilization: Beyond Earth]]'' has five unique '''victory types'''. Unlike in previous ''Civilization'' games, the paths to victory are part narrative. Because ''Civilization: Beyond Earth'' takes place in the future, the developers made each victory path come with various {{LinkBE|Quests}} to help tell the narrative. These are mini goals towards winning the game, and help the player learn play styles, or offer choices towards {{LinkBE|Affinities}}.

[[File:Domination VC.jpg|right|200px]]The classic Civilization victory. To win a Domination victory, a player must control all of the original capital cities. This is changed from the initial release of the game where a player had to be the last player with its original capital.

[[File:Domination VC.jpg|right|200px]]The classic Civilization victory. To win a Domination victory, one must be the last player controlling their capital. Each time someone loses their first city, the others are a step closer to the victory. Paradoxically, it is possible to achieve Domination without one single fight - waiting for others to conquer capitals of each other. Of course, since the chance of this is really small (you'll have to count not only on one or more nations conquering the others, but also on the capitals of the conquerors to fall), the most effective way to achieve this victory is capturing the other capitals by yourself.
  +
  +
Even if the game tells the player he has a new capital, it is the first established city that counts, so it is advised to protect it well, especially if neighbors are aggressive.
   
 
When setting up a new game, the Advanced Settings menu allows you to decide if domination victory includes just capturing the capitals, or if you have to eliminate all cities and enemy units in the game.

The goal of this victory is to establish contact with a superior alien race. Throughout a play session, the player will find clues to sentient alien life. By completing quests, or developing certain technologies, the player will unlock the means of decoding an alien Signal, and then use it to contact its authors. This victory type is a homage to a Carl Sagan book of the same name.

The Contact victory is potentially the fastest victory possible. In theory, you may be able to find one of the two pieces of The Signal within the first 100 turns if you stumble on one piece in a Progenitor ruin soon after you start.

This victory is achieved with the {{LinkBE|Harmony}} affinity, and consists of linking all the minds of the planet into a single consciousness, allowing humanity to transcend into an existence beyond the individual. The player must build the {{LinkBE|Mind Flower}} and protect it until victory is met. By building the Mind Flower, humans begin to connect with and awaken the consciousness of the planet.
 
 
*Research {{LinkBE|Nanorobotics}}, {{LinkBE|Transgenics}}, and {{LinkBE|Swarm Intelligence}} to develop the Cognitive Link.
 
*Achieve {{HarmonyBE}} level 15 (13 in Base BE) and build the {{LinkBE|Mind Flower}} planetary wonder.
 
*Defend the Mind Flower until it establishes a Cognitive Link. Support it with [[Xeno Sanctuary (CivBE)|Xeno Sanctuary]] and {{LinkBE|Mind Stem}} buildings to speed up the linking process.

Among the Affinity Victories, Transcendence is perhaps the easiest one. It requires a larger tech research spectrum, though, so you'll need an efficient research, if you are to both develop the Harmony Affinity and research the necessary high-end techs. Unlike the other two types of Affinity victory, once you establish the Cognitive Link (that is, when you complete Mind Flower), you don't need to do anything - just wait. How fast the link is established depends on the presence of special buildings in your cities - the more of these, the faster the linking process. Again, plan ahead of time. Also, be mindful that during the linking all Alien units turn hostile (dark red)!

To win you must have 20 total population in all Earthling Settlements. Settlements can be destroyed and cannot be created within 3 tiles of any other city; they can however be created on your territory

*Note: Colonist can only move one tile per turn (two at sea). This makes it imperative to build a Magrail network to the places where you plan to establish the earthling colonies, or else the settlers will take forever to move! Only one Colonist Unit can be summoned each turn at the Exodus Gate. The new settlements take no extra land and cannot be interacted with as Minor Powers. Units can be garrisoned in the settlements for protection.

Its differential is that you will then have to settle the incoming Earthlings. To do this efficiently, you need to plan ahead of time and leave suitable space inside your territory, well-served by your transport network. You need to establish four Earthling settlements, and distribute the 20 Colonists among them.

*Note: Only 1 unit is allowed through the gate each turn, and this has to be a land unit (no sea or air units allowed). This means that the more powerful each single unit that is sent, the faster the victory will be achieved. On the other hand, it also means that as you progress towards victory, your army may gradually weaken, so be prepared to fend off any last minute attacks and/or defend the Gate! As a common rule, its often useful to keep your gate near one of your strongest cities, so you can produce units to defend/go through the gate more quickly and conveniently.

This type of Affinity Victory is a mixture of good tech planning (to research the necessary techs and develop Supremacy Affinity) and army building. Unlike Domination victory, however, your goal is not to conquer enemy cities - it is to build as strong an army as possible, so that you can not only send enough units through the Gate, but also ensure its defense. Again, the more powerful the individual units sent, the shorter time it will take to achieve the victory once the Emancipation Gate is completed. As with the other two Affinity Victories, placement of the Gate is very important.
