Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 announced!
By Camikaze at 2014-06-23 11:46

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2, the sequel to the 2008 game, has been announced by 2K & Firaxis on social media, to be released on July 2nd. The announcement states:
Quote:
We’re proud to announce that Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 is launching as a premium title on July 2 for iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and iPod Touch.

(Android fans: ‪CivRev2‬ will be coming soon to Android devices.)

Developed exclusively for mobile platforms, Civilization Revolution 2 combines the core elements of the Civilization series with intuitive controls and a friendly user interface, designed specifically for touch-pad devices.

Stay tuned for screenshots and sneak peeks at #CivRev2 this week!
In a press release, 2K noted that:
Quote:
Civilization Revolution 2 is the first Civilization game to be developed exclusively for mobile platforms, delivering high-impact graphics and new gameplay and controls that capitalize on the mobile technology advancements since the original Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution launched more than five years ago. The game will combine the core tactical elements of the series with intuitive controls and a friendly user interface - designed specifically for mobile gamers on touch-pad devices. Civilization fans will also recognize the 16 historical leaders found in the first game, including Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Napoleon, alongside leaders such as Churchill and Kennedy, who are making their appearance in the series for the first time.

The original Civilization Revolution, designed by Firaxis Games in 2008, was a watershed game for console and handheld systems and brought to iPhone in 2009. In 2010, the title was optimized for Apple’s high-definition iPad and has since achieved an average rating of 4/5 stars among iOS users. Staying true to the series, Civilization Revolution 2 will allow players to lead a civilization from the dawn of man to the modern age, and go head-to-head with history’s most intrepid leaders as they wage war, conduct diplomacy, discover new technologies, and build the most powerful empire the world has ever known in a race for ultimate supremacy.

Some worthy graphics work has come up:

  • Balthasar has published a beautiful Mars Terrain set which includes its own terrain graphics, depicted above.
  • Shadow of Death has uploaded a map pack of the Pacific theatre of World War II, the Industrial Age Pacific Theatre Map.
    It comes with three versions: a blank one for yourself to make your map (or play as a normal game), one with pre-placed resources. and one with pre-placed cities and civilisations.

Now, to our main staple, the units:

See you soon, folks!
