2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc, today announced that Sid Meier's Civilization V, the newest entry from the genre-defining strategy-based franchise, is currently in development at Firaxis Games for PC. Civilization V reinvigorates the classic turn-based strategy genre with an astonishing new engine built from the ground-up for this flagship edition of the Civilization franchise. Players are introduced to an entirely new combat system, deeper diplomatic interactions and a cavalcade of expanded features that deliver a fully immersive experience providing hours of entertainment as players build and defend their empire on their quest to become the greatest ruler the world has ever known.

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.

"Sid Meier's Civilization franchise has been recognized as one of the greatest PC game franchises of all time with millions of units sold worldwide," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Civilization V takes the franchise further by offering players a more immersive experience with deeper strategies; heightened tactical combat; vast, realistic landscapes to explore, battle over and claim as their own; and an in-game community hub where Civ fans can share content and compete against each other without leaving the game. This marks a new era that will forever change the franchise responsible for sleep deprivation and reduced productivity for nearly two decades."

"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."

In addition to Civilization V, Firaxis Games is also currently developing Sid Meier's Civilization Network, a Civ game for Facebook. With Sid Meier leading design, Civilization Network will offer yet another option for world domination to both the casual gamer and the biggest fans of the series. It's another way to access the famously addictive world of Civilization.

I have too much of an itchy trigger-finger to play games like this as a rule, but it's still good to see another iteration of the series.

Finally a hex map. The lack of that is what I've always figured to be one of the biggest lacks in Civ games.

Too bad the graphics look crappy, I'd choose the looks of Civ 3 or Call to Power over that any day.

I just hope the new versions make the transitions between eras a little less abrupt.

Also, what's the best special unit in civ IV?

Depends on when you are planning to do some big offensive actions. Personally, since I try to do all my fighting near the end of the tech tree, I am quite a fan of the Panzer.

As far as finishing the game quickly on higher difficulty, I would say that the legion is probably the most overpowered.  I'm a fan of early Cho Ko Nu myself.

Well, it's still an early beta.

Though those roads are fricking ugly.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

 
Legions are overpowered?  They've been that way since at least Civ2.  Years ago, a friend was playing Civ2, and he had advanced all the way to the modern age.  He takes a destroyer, and sends it up against a legion.  The destroyer won, but it went down to less than half health.

[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

I agree on the Panzer strategy, I tend to build up my techs before attacking.

In civ I have two favourite units, Panzers and Samurais.

I never thought that nukes did enough damage.  Maybe I'm not using enough of them.

They are wonderful on stacks of doom.  I don't care how many troops the opposition has you keep a spy on them, send a nuke, and clean up the mess.  They do plenty of damage :D

They do, throw it onto a populated and very well defended city, then wait a few turns to strike.

I remember they sent an Ironclad to hunt my sub after that :P, I now realize I spent a LOT of time playing that game.
