New Civilization Game Announced
Firaxis Games' Sid Meier revealed this morning that a new entry in the empire-building Civilization series is in development. It's called Civilization Network and is specifically designed for Facebook.
"Civilization Network will allow you to join together with your friends to create the world’s most powerful, richest, smartest, or just plain coolest civilization," Meier wrote in a post on CivFanatics.com. "You can coordinate your strategy to win great battles, share your technology to jump ahead of your rivals, lobby your family and friends to form your own government and win vital elections, manage and grow your cities to maximize production and happiness, spy on your enemies, and work with your friends to create the great Wonders of the World. The game will offer everything you enjoy in Civ in a fully persistent environment - you can play as much as you like, whenever you like, and it’ll be free to play."
A closed beta for the game will begin soon, but sign-up details have yet to be revealed. The game is expected to go live in 2010. A new Facebook page for the game is now live.
