No, it’s not just FarmVille we’ll be addicted to while surfing Facebook. Sid Meyer, the creator of the Civilization series, is planning to bring to Facebook a bit of the goodness of the series under the name of Civilization Network. We have a few details about the game, so you’d better read them to e prepared!
Here’s what Sid Meyer himself said about the game: “Civilization Network will allow you to join together with your friends to create the world’s most powerful, richest, smartest, or just plain coolest civilization. You can coordinate your strategy to win great battles, share your technology to jump ahead of your rivals, lobby your family and friends to form your own government and win vital elections, manage and grow your cities to maximize production and happiness, spy on your enemies, and work with your friends to create the great Wonders of the World. The game will offer everything you enjoy in Civ in a fully persistent environment – you can play as much as you like, whenever you like, and it’ll be free to play.”
The game is still long away from a release date: it’ll be sometime in 2010 when the game will be made available for everybody, but a closed beta is incoming, so you’d better keep an eye on Unigamesity to learn more about Civilization Network and get your chance to be one of the first to play it.
Now let’s do a little crystalball-rubbing: do you think such an impressive project like Civilization Network will have any success on such a casual social site like Facebook?
