I know I just mentioned it in the Good News thread, but there's a lot of information that at least some people here would like to know. Also, I'm insanely excited about it. :D :D :D :D :D
Civ V has been announced, set for a 2010 release. The new game is set to include:
-Leaders speaking their native languages, not Simmish!
-Expanded diplomacy that takes place in full screen!
-18 Civs to choose from
-Access to Civ community from the game menu itself
This is a really major release for PC gamers, or at least PC gamers that enjoy games that involve slower-paced thinking titles, a sphere that includes a lot of adventure gamers.
