Slated for July 9, Civilization V is ready to expand with Brave New World. It features exactly what you’d expect from a new Civilization expansion (new units, new wonders, new civilizations, new scenarios), and a little bit more.
Cultural victories have been rethought to remove the grind and force you need to actively spread your culture. The industrial age now requires you to choose an ideology that has a similar function as religion does in the early game. Diplomacy has become much more vital, with a world congress that can vote on things like sanctions, resource management, and curtailing nuclear weapons. Finally, there’s a new trade route system.
So, will this new expansion be just as addictive as before? We’d let you know, but our last stay in rehab was more than enough, thanks.
