Only 4 months after releasing Civilization 5 Sid Meier has announced he’s upcoming Civilization game. This time Sid turns to Facebook. The official title is Civilization World (aka Civ World). Sid says that in Civ World you will be joining your friends to form nations, which will compete with other player’s nations to rule the world.
Sid also announced that they are going to launch the closed Alpha test of the game in January 12th 2011 and invites everybody to sign up at 2K Civ World alpha website to become part of the development testing. You will need to form a team, choose a team name and a team captain. Each team member will need to register at the site.
As a token of appreciation to all that register for the Civ World Alpha testing they will grant a special item for you to display in your throne room to let the world know you’re one of the founding players of the game.
Sid Meier has been supervising the designing of Civ World personally along with he’s Firaxis design team. Sid states that in the coming months he will be posting gameplay updates detailing parts of the game.
Sid said the following about Civ World: “games will have a well-defined beginning and end, each ending with a triumphant civilization and one person recognized as that game’s most prestigious player. Along the way, as you progress through the different eras of time, you’ll have the chance to win era victories as well. We want players to have both a final goal to work towards, as well as short-term objectives to achieve as they play. The trophies you unlock with your triumphs will carry over from game to game, and you can show them off in your throne room“.
