2K Games has made lovers of Sid Meier’s adored Civilization franchise extremely happy today by announcing that Civilization V will be ruining lives and/or drastically altering sleep schedules this fall.
Firaxis Games creative director Sid Meier said the following in a statement to the press:
“Each new version of Civilization presents exciting challenges for our team. 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.”
Civ addicts will also be able to get their fix via Firaxis’ other project, the Facebook-based title, Sid Meier’s Civilization Network, which will also be launching this year.
