It’s early days for Humankind cheats and console commands, but we’ve listed below all the ones currently available and how to enable any future cheats and commands for Humankind that become available.
Humankind is the newly released game from Amplitude, developers of the previous strategy hits: Endless Space, Endless Space 2, and Endless Legend. Touted by some as a challenger to the mighty Civilization, many fans of 4x strategy titles can’t wait to get hold of the game following its release.
Amplitude have stated that, as was the case with some of their other games, cheat commands will not be available for Humankind on launch, and they will have to patch them in at a later date (Endless Legend only had them patched in around 7 months after launch).
Full modding support will likely also take several months following the release of Humankind.
How To Enable Humankind Cheats And Console Commands
- To enable Humankind console commands in Steam: Find Humankind in your Steam library and right-click it, then click properties. In the new window, go to the foot of the General tab, find the Launch Options text field and input –enablemoddingtools . Now, when you start the game, you will be able to open the console.
- To enable Humankind console commands in the Windows Store or Epic Games Store: Find the installation folder for Humankind and create a shortcut of the game’s executable file. Right-click on this once it is created and select properties. Find the shortcut tab in the window that opens and the ‘Target’ text box within it. You then need to add –enablemoddingtools to the end of the shortcut’s target so it looks something like: Humankind.exe” –enablemoddingtools
As with other Amplitude Studios games, to enable the console commands and cheats for Humankind you’ll need to launch it using the “–enablemoddingtools” command in order to enable the game’s console.
Once in the game, this will allow you to open an input window to type in the codes. As in Endless Space 2, Shift+F1 should open the console command window.
Humankind Console Commands
An early list of console commands is as follows. None of these are cheats as such – they are primarily just ways to communicate with (or block) other human players in multiplayer games.
As more time passes from the release of the game, it is likely this list will fill up with more complex console commands and more actual cheats. As and when they are added, we will update this table accordingly. If you know of any ones we are missing, please do send us a comment below and we will be sure to add it.
