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.
