  • Sid Meier's Civilization V

The flagship strategy game makes a return in Civilization V.
Players will become the ruler of the world by building and leading a civilization spanning from the beginning of man through to the space age. Here, you will discover new technologies, manage diplomacy, take on the greatest leaders and wage war as you craft the most powerful empire in history.
Expect to see all new features with a new hex-based gameplay grid, which lays down the foundations for exploring new building and combat techniques. The City States will become a new resource on the battlefields, with a new diplomacy system allowing you to interact with other leaders. Civilization V also offers customized music scores, as well as orchestral recordings for a whole new level of quality that fans have come to expect from the well-established turn-based strategy series.
Don't be afraid to jump right into the action, as this new entry offers a pace which you can use to cater to the way you approach the game, thanks to its intuitive interface to ease you in. There is also a high level of depth and control for more familiar Civ players, which makes this one of the best entries seen to date.
There is a reputation to protect with the Civ series, and the heavily realistic graphics across lush landscapes certainly do it justice. With the heavy art deco influences on show in every area of the game, this can easily be considered the best-designed outing ever delivered.
There is also a thriving community to do battle with, as well as multiplayer and mod support for you to experience Civ V in unpredictable and unprecedented ways.


Note: The Mac and Linux + SteamOS versions of Sid Meier's Civilization V are available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish only.

There are many ways you can play strategy games, but playing a game of Civilization V, with twelve factions, and a single person playing all twelve in order to direct the course of history for that game, is certainly a new one. It's not one I've heard about often, at least. But hey, since Firaxis isn't announcing Civilization 7 any time soon, the Civ player base might as well find new ways to enjoy the games they have. User MartinChatski on the Civ subreddit has been sharing one especially galax...

What are the best Civ 5 mods? Even though it's no longer the most popular Civilization game, there's still a lot of love and respect for Civilization 5, and it carries a respectable playerbase even today. 4X games like Civ are largely sandbox in nature, so replayability isn't always a concern, but it also helps to have a thriving and active mod scene. Civ 5's mod scene is more settled now, with fewer new ideas coming through, but there's still plenty of decent mods to check out if you want to ke...

A classic by any measure, Civilization V allows you to guide your nation from inception to world domination in any way you see fit. Providing one of the broadest list of victory conditions in any strategy game, Civ 5 can be slightly challenging when trying out new things. Civ 5 civilisations are slightly more niche than in the newer Civ VI, creating a clear focus that allows specific nations and specific Civ 5 leaders to achieve their chosen victory condition more easily. There are also more str...

Five of the Best is a weekly series about the small details we rush past when we're playing but which shape a game in our memory for years to come. Details like the way a character jumps or the title screen you load into, or the potions you use and maps you refer back to. We've talked about so many in our Five of the Best series so far. But there are always more. Five of the Best works like this. Various Eurogamer writers will share their memories in the article and then you - probably outraged ...
