Turn-based strategy gaming is taken to a whole new level with Civilization IV for PC. Selecting solo or multiplayer mode, players choose from one of 18 civilizations and 26 world leaders to create history. Play as the shrewd Queen Victoria, the wise George Washington, or the cunning Julius Caesar.
Like past games in the Civilization series, in Civilization IV players build an empire and compete against rival civs. Your civilization can take a more peaceful path and win via culture, diplomacy, or scientific advances. If you're the rowdy type, you can win by conquest or world domination. Learn to balance your cities' economy, happiness, and research to keep your civs growing. Keep your citizens happy, or they'll revolt. Keep your scientists busy, or your civ will be stuck with catapults while your neighbors have cannons.
Civilization IV improves upon its predecessor in many ways. The 3D graphics engine enables spectacular, detailed world maps. Players can zoom in to individual cities to see and hear them come to life. The new Religion feature adds a twist to your civ's development, while overall gameplay has been streamlined. The latest installment in one of the greatest game franchises of the ages, Civilization IV for PC is guaranteed to keep wannabe world leaders busy for months!
