New drone flyover gives up-close look at Apple’s rapidly progressing Campus 2

This latest drone flyover of Apple’s under construction Campus 2 project is perhaps our best look yet at the site that will soon become Apple’s main headquarters and home to around 13,000 of its employees. The footage comes courtesy of Duncan Sinfield (via MR).

Since last checking in, you can see that Apple has now completed erecting most of the four stories that make up the main, circular structure. And if you’ve been keeping track (we have in our continually updated construction progress timeline), you’ll also notice that much of the surrounding campus taking shape with the underground auditorium, parking structure, R&D facilities and more all starting to look real.

If all goes to plan and Apple sticks to its general construction schedule posted on the City of Cupertino’s website (below), it will wrap up construction by the end of 2016 and begin moving its employees onto the campus from its current HQ down the road and elsewhere.

If you want to check out how the project has progressed so far, you can head over to our construction progress timeline that includes drone videos, official aerial shots from Apple and City of Cupertino, and news surrounding the project since before construction began.

First gameplay footage of ‘Sid Meier’s Starships’ for Mac and iPad (Video)

2K and developer Firaxis recently announced Sid Meier’s Starships, an intriguing new interstellar strategy game coming early this year on Mac, iPad and PC. Today we get the first gameplay footage from the upcoming title as part of the Firaxis Games Megapanel at PAX South. 

The hour-long video above includes the entire panel discussion with Sid Meier and other involved with the game, but there’s a quick link to jump to the lengthy gameplay demo (30:00) in the video above. 

The session features legendary game designer Sid Meier alongside the lead designers from the award-winning strategy title, Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth. In case you weren’t able to attend, the panel reveals the first public gameplay footage of Sid Meier’s Starships, as well as addresses the thematic tie-ins, connectivity and differences of the two games.

The game extends the sci-fi universe introduced last year in Civilization: Beyond Earth, the latest title in Sid Meier’s Civilization series. The game is also expected to include integration between the two that 2K says “will enhance and expand the depth of both game experiences.” The panel discussed the integration more in-depth during the gameplay demo at PAX South today. 

The original announcement trailer for Starships is here.
