2K has announced that a new expansion pack for Sid Meier's Civilization IV
is coming in July. This second expansion for the PC game gets the pacifistic title Beyond the Sword
. SPOnG has some artwork to help you get your God head on.
As the name suggests, this follow-up to last years Warlords
expansion focuses on the latter-day stages of Civilisation IV
following the invention of gunpowder. It offers up 12 new scenarios created by Meier's Firaxis development team. Also up for grabs are ten new civilisations, 16 new leaders, five new wonders and a variety of new units.
If you're as old as SPOnG you might remember getting your socks rocked off back in 1991 by the original game. Ah... all those happy evenings spent negotiating with Stalin instead of going to raves with all your mates. SPOnG reckons that if our Tony had done the same this country might be in better shape.
