Apparently 2K Games is bringing Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 to Android, though so far we aren’t sure when –which is making it very difficult for me to schedule my holidays around the release (because I am virtually certain I won’t be getting any work done for a while after it’s out). Fans of the popular turn-based strategy games should be excited: Sid Meier’s Civilization is a seasoned veteran in the genre.
The Android version is slated to allow gamers to lead a civilization from the dawn of man clear to the modern age, all the while waging war, attempting diplomacy and discovering new (to the era) technologies along side history’s most famous leaders (such as Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Napoleon –but also a few new faces such as Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy)… all in an effort to achieve ultimate worldwide supremacy (before anyone else). It is a familiar formula for the franchise, but it is tried and true (and revered).
The first installment in the Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution franchise was available for many platforms (including xBox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS) in 2008 with a release to iOS one year later in 2009. For those who still game on a PC (I imagine there are a few of you still out there), Civilization: Beyond Earth is set to launch later this year as well (promised as a spiritual successor to Alpha Centauri).
