We’re happy to answer any questions you might have about Humankind outposts and cities. One of the first things you’ll do in the new 4X game is place an outpost, as your nomadic tribe puts down roots and begins to develop the infrastructure to support districts and developments. Once you reach the Ancient era you will be able to convert your outpost into an actual city. You can expand on this however.

It will take several turns to construct the outpost after it is placed. The time required depends on how strong the army and industry surrounding it. You can have it completed immediately for a small fee.
ToAttach outposts citiesThe outpost must have territory that is adjacent to the territory of the city. You will need to pay an influence fee based on how many territories your city has, its distance from the closest city and whether the territory falls within an enemy’s sphere. You can free-of-charge remove an outpost from a city, but it must be paid to attach again. You can transform your outpost into a city once it has reached one person. This is everything you need about managing a city in Humankind.

Humankind’s best strategy for destroying cities
You’re looking for ways to demolish a city? Here’s how. Bring an army unit near the city. Then, use the army action menu’s ‘ransack option. The process can take several rounds, but the end result will be a complete destruction of your city.
However, it’s difficult to simply walk up to any city and erase its name from the map. It’s likely that you will need to fight multiple battles and even win a siege. You can read more about that in our Humankind war guide.
Cities were occupied by the human race
You don’t have to add a city you occupied during wars with other civilisations. The city will remain occupied for the duration of the war until you can claim it in the surrender negotiations. Keep some armies near a city that you wish to retain, because it could be taken back by the enemy during the ongoing war.
