2K Games Announces Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution Available Now
The industry’s leading strategy developer, Firaxis Games, revolutionizes global domination on current generation systems and handhelds
2K Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution is now available worldwide for PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360, and in North America for Nintendo DS. This is the first title in the award-winning Civilization series designed and created specifically for current generation console and handheld systems. Developed by 2K’s renowned Firaxis Games studio, Civilization Revolution ushers forth a new generation of strategic global domination, streamlined for players covering a wide range of ages and skill levels.
“It’s really exciting to bring the Civilization series to the console and handheld market in a whole new way,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. “By starting the design from scratch, we were able to ensure Civilization Revolution has the fast paced aspect console gamers crave, while still delivering the strategic element fans of the series expect.”
In 1991, Sid Meier put computer gaming on the map when he delivered Civilization to the PC gaming world, launching the "God Game" genre and creating one of the most award-winning and addictive strategy series of all time. Built specifically for console and handheld systems, Civilization Revolution features the franchise’s fastest pick-up-and-play action to date and still honors the most beloved elements from the core series: strategic global reign and encounters with history’s most intrepid leaders. An intuitive tutorial has been designed to ease newcomers into the world of Civilization Revolution while varying difficulty levels are included that provide challenges to players of all skill levels. Civilization Revolution also takes advantage of the console architecture, providing a graphically and acoustically advanced experience that immerses players in the world of Civilization. Civilization Revolution for Nintendo DS delivers an experience that shares the same game core and features as its console counterparts
In the new streamlined and intuitive multiplayer component, players can log on to the PLAYSTATION Network, Xbox LIVE online entertainment network or Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and challenge other fans worldwide to determine the greatest ruler. PLAYSTATION Network and Xbox Live users will also be able to download multiplayer maps and scenarios, and all three platforms support the Game of the Week online feature which provides new challenges every week after launch.
2K Games and Firaxis are proud to expand the Civilization tradition with Civilization Revolution which is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and older by the ESRB and is now available for the PLAYSTATION 3 system, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS.
