  • Civilization V announced

    Its finally here :)

    The next game in the highly successful Civilization franchise from Firaxis and 2K Games has been announced this morning. Exclusive details and interviews with Sid Meier, Jon Shafer, and other Civilization alumni will appear in the next issue of GamePro. And yes, the game is hex-based this time.


    Following the news that Sid Meier's Facebook game, Civilization Network, will move into a Beta phase this June, 2K Games and Firaxis has confirmed rumors and announced the next "full" sequel in the Civilization franchise. Civilization V has been designed to reinvigorate the classic turn-based strategy genre with a brand new engine built that includes an entirely new combat system, and deeper diplomatic interactions. Beyond the official announcement, further details on the game, including interviews with Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games, and Civ V project lead Jon Shafer will appear in the April issue of GamePro. The magazine begins shipping to subscribers this week, and will be on U.S. newsstands on March 9. The cover image, seen here, is an original rendering of George Washington, who appears in the game along with an assortment of new world leaders that have not appeared in the franchise before.

    From the press release:

    Civilization V takes this definitive strategy game series in new directions with the introduction of hexagon tiles allowing for deeper strategy, more realistic gameplay and stunning organic landscapes for players to explore as they expand their empire. The brand new engine orchestrates a spectacular visual experience that brings players closer to the Civ experience than ever, featuring fully animated leaders interacting with players from a screen-filling diplomatic scene and speaking in their native language for the first time. Wars between empires feel massive as armies dominate the landscape, and combat is more exciting and intense than ever before. The addition of ranged bombardment allows players to fire weapons from behind the front lines, challenging players to develop clever new strategies to guarantee victory on the battlefield. In addition to the new gameplay features debuting in Civilization V, an extensive suite of community, modding and multiplayer elements will also make an appearance.

    “Each new version of Civilization presents exciting challenges for our team,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. “Thankfully, ideas on how to bring new and fun experiences to Civ players never seem to stop flowing. From fully animated leaders and realistic landscapes, new combat tactics, expanded diplomacy and shared mods, we’re excited for players to see the new vision our team at Firaxis has brought to the series.”

    No release date has been announced yet.

          This is awesome. A lot of peeps I know who play Civ4 BTS are thrilled. I play BTS *everyday* (among other games) on a variety of settings with others so knowing that Civ5 is on its is like eating cupcakes filled with gold.
