GDC 2010 Preview: Civilization V


Posted March 10, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Civilization V

Hexes have never been as sexy as they are in Sid Meier's Civilization 5. The game comes out this summer for the PC, and when it does, gamers everywhere will have their lives taken over by strategy, conquest and ceaseless war. Our own Andrew Pfister put the turn-based strategy game through its paces at GDC 2010, and here's what he had to say about it...

"They had me at the pretty shimmering water.

Truthfully, they had me at the announcement of a new Civilization game, the latest in the  classic turn-based strategy series of barbarian taunting, cow pastures, settling Elvis Presley in the bustling metropolis of “Awesometown” for a culture bonus, and if you’re interested, complete global domination.

But Civilization V has some really pretty water."

For the rest of Pfister's preview, check out this link. And for more GDC news, photos, videos and awesomeness, check out our GDC 2010 headquarters.
