New Screenshots for Civilization V

With over nine million units sold worldwide, and unprecedented critical acclaim from fans and press around the world, Sid Meier’s Civilization is recognized as one of the greatest strategy franchises of all-time. Now, Firaxis Games will take this incredibly fun and addictive strategy game to unprecedented heights by adding new ways to play and win; new tools to manage and expand your civilization; extensive modding capabilities; and intensely competitive multiplayer options. Civilization V will come to life in a beautifully detailed, living world that will elevate the gameplay experience to a whole new level making it a must-have for gamers around the globe!

Today, 2K Games released four new "hands-on preview" screenshots that you can see in our gallery. I think any Civ fanatic will be pleased by the nice amount of detail added just about everything in the game. The UI seems to have also received a nice amount of tender loving care, making everything appear much more accessible. Lastly, what is that about “buying a tile”? It’s been a while, but I don’t recall that in Civ IV. Take a look at the diplomacy screenshot to see what I mean.

Sid Meier’s fifth offering to strategy gamers is still on track for a September 21 release. 2K Games has also announced that a demo for Civilization V will be available to download prior to the launch of the game.
