In Civ V, there was a tutorial mode that would teach you the basics of the game. Is there a similar thing in BE? The closest thing I see is the quests, which is kind of a tutorial, but I just won my first game and learned very little from it.
There is not a dedicated "tutorial mode" in BE.
However, as @nzifnab mentioned in his/her comment, the
ADVISR system is pretty much a tutorial. In general, it seems the advisors have been re-vamped a bit. They seem much more useful this time around, and also provide continual help for reoccurring situations.
For instance, in my current game, I get a pop-up every time one of my covert agents is idle, so I know to open the covert ops menu and give them a new assignment. (While I am personally starting to find it a bit annoying, I can certainly see the benefit for newer players.)
If you feel a little lost, I suggest increasing the
ADVISR setting in the gameplay menu.
