In development for PC, Sid Meier’s Civilization V, from 2K Games, will be featuring a brand new game engine, built from scratch.
â€œSid Meierâ€™s Civilization franchise has been recognized as one of the greatest PC game franchises of all time with millions of units sold worldwide,â€ said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. â€œCivilization 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.â€
â€œEach new version of Civilization presents exciting challenges for our team,â€ said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. â€œThankfully, 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, weâ€™re excited for players to see the new vision our team at Firaxis has brought to the series.â€
