Default Civilization 5

Yep - it's coming!!

While Civ4 was (and still is) rated as an almost perfect title (Beyond the Sword really put the icing on the cake!), I can't help but drool at the thought of what's to come with the next installment.

Details are a bit thin on the ground at the moment, but keep your eyes on the main website: Civilization V

There's a list of new features and updates there, along with some great looking screenshots. Interestingly, they'll be releasing this at the same time as a Facebook version. And if Farmville can make it as a huge title, I can't wait to see what Civ5 will do to the bored housewife market out there!

Due for release around "Fall 2010"

EDIT: New cinematic trailer available for local (Aussie) download here.

Yeah there's not really a lot to go by at the mo. A bit of a blurb and about 5 screenies.

But woo! I'm dribbling a bit in anticipation.

I love Civ... not sure how they can make it better unless they allow us to colonize other planets and include space fleets, then we will have a real 4x that is pretty much unlimited.... of course a turn may take you a day or two

Yeah it's hard to see where they could improve from where they left off - but I thought that about Civ2 as well. I also thought that after Civ4 - then Warlords, then Beyond the Sword

I has faith

Civ5 is the feature article for Australia's PCPowerplay magazine this month - it's a great read, and sheds a lot of light on what we're likely to see.

It's sounding like a VERY different game...

The series was just too complicated for my simple brain

Are they going to support the game this time, with timely fixes for their multiplayer and updated content. Or they just making some money again?
I know lets take stacking units away again... until the expansion like the last 3 times. great idea. ooo, how about taking away religion and espionage, that should give us 3 expansions this time!
