TestFreaks Data











It’s been a long time since I played Civilization, but I do recall spending many unproductive hours with it. Well not exactly unproductive, I guess taking over the world wouldn’t be considered not productive right?

2K Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Civilization® V is available today at retail outlets across North America. Developed by 2K’s world-renowned Firaxis Games studio for the PC, the latest addition to the franchise that popularized the addictive “just one more turn” gameplay is back and the critics have spoken: it’s bigger and better than ever.

“They said it couldn’t be done, but the talented team at Firaxis Games has managed to make a game that tops Sid Meier’s Civilization IV, their previous magnum opus,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “A beautiful new engine, many enhancements to the combat and a streamlined interface make Sid Meier’s Civilization V both the deepest and most accessible Civ game ever.”

Civilization V takes this definitive strategy game series in new directions with the introduction of hexagonal 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 delivers a spectacular visual experience that brings players closer to the Civ world 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 them 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 be available.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V is rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) by the ESRB and is available today on the PC for $49.99. A playable demo is now available to download for free. Additionally, the Sid Meier’s Civilization V Digital Deluxe Edition is available at participating digital distribution sites for $59.99, and the Sid Meier’s Civilization V Special Edition is available at select outlets for $99.99.
