    It's coming.

    http://civilization5.com/

    Who's excited? I've been playing this series since 2 and am always amazed at the new mechanics they add in every game. The ones in 5 so far look pretty major (or majorly pretty :p:facepalm:)

    Anyone else reinstalling Civ 4 to start warming up again?

    I love how spore managed to attempt to rip-off this game, and even named said stage after said game (former: civilisation, latter: civilisation)

    At least it should make the whole scaling out to reveal the globe thing more fluid. Also, apparently (sources unconfirmed) you can only have 1 unit on a tile a time. I guess the definition of unit is key here as it looks like you can merge troops together into armies.

    Voiced by Captain Anderson from the Mass Effect series in part, so it seems.

    New Info, from a Translated Swedish gaming Magazine.

    City states:
    These are small, AI-controlled civilizations. They never grow big and doesn´t desire to win. The player must choose if he is to be friendly, indifferent or hostile towards a city state. The attitude you has towards a particular city state will have a big effect on diplomacy. If for example your units is approaching a city state that have friendly relations with another civilization, he will warn you, and if you ignore them, there will be consequences.

    Barbarians:
    The barbarians originate from a barbarian city and will get more advanced units later in the game. You need to wipe out all barbarian cities to get rid of the barbarian hordes.

    City expansion:
    Borders does no longer expand in large areas, but one hex at a time. Remote hexes like marshes, forests and mountains will be harder to acquire.

    Economy:
    You can invest money in your neighboring hexagons, for example trying to acquire an important resource before your opponent.

    Research:
    You can also sign a research-deal with another civilization. This way, both civs will cooperate to reach the new technology and both will gain it when the discovery is made. This was included to encourage cooperation between civilizations.

    Diplomacy:
    The civilizations will have an all-new advanced AI. All opponents will have fixed characteristics. Based on this unique personality, every AI-player will have their own agenda, which the AI will use to plan how to best play to win the game. But there will also be a certain randomness to avoid having the AI be too easy to predict.

    Computer Bild Spiele, as reported by Civinator:

    Tech trading is abolished.

    Alliances give special boni (per example the possibility for a quicker research of a technology)

    Cut-out of religions as known in Civ 4 confirmed

    Cities can grow bigger than in former versions of the civ series as they there are 3 tiles for a city in every direction to be worked on.

    New troops must leave a city at once, as there is only one unit per tile

    Distance fighters (archers, artillery and so on) can shoot over the front units, lakes and other tiles

    One philosophy is to form front lines for battles far away from the cities.

    GamePro, as reported by dc82:

    Leaders/Civs
    German leader: Otto von Bismark
    China leader: Wu Zeitein/Zetein
    American leader: Washington
    Japanese leader: Oba Nobunaga
    Arabian leader: Harun al-Rashid
    Other confirmed leaders mentioned in the article (Genghis Khan, Caesar, Napoleon, Gandhi)

    More Confirms:
    England: William the Conqueror, Henry VI, another ruler
    France: Louis XI "the Spider", Napoleon
    Germany: Frederick Barbarossa, Bismarck
    Spain: Carlos V, another ruler
    Rome: Augustus, Julius, and another ruler
    India: Ashoka, Gandhi
    Arabia: Harun alRashid, Abu Bakr, Nur-al-din
    Mongolia: Genghis
    Cherokee: Sekwouya
    America: Harry Truman

    Units
    Basic military units move two tiles in combat instead of one.

    Good-bye Doomstacks. :( And still no Hitler?
