civ rev

2K Games has announced a sequel to the original Civilization Revolution game that launched for iPad, which can be considered a bad Nintendo DS port (especially compared to the PC and console counterparts). The first part of the big news is that this release is slated for Android at some point! The iOS version is due at some point next week, and 2K promises we should see it in Google Play shortly afterward.

The second piece of good news is that they have completely overhauled the game’s controls, graphics and mechanics for this release. We move from 2D to 3D scenery, and the controls have been properly adapted for mobile (the original was a lot more wonky and difficult to use).

Civilization Revolution has you taking the reigns of one of several countries. You start with nothing but a group of eager settlers, and it’s your job to take those two people from rags and poverty to riches and prosperity. You’ll do so through research and advancing new technologies, building your military, and striving toward science, economic and cultural victories through space exploration, currency and great works.

Diplomatic engagements are aplenty, too, as you’ll be trading, waging war, negotiating peace and more with all of the civilizations around you. It’s a wonderful turn-based strategy game that should be on everyone’s radar, so stay tuned for a release date and more information as we barrel toward release. Need a quick idea of what Civilization is like? Gameplay from the original console and PC version of Civilization Revolution can be found sitting above.
