Civilization Coming to Facebook

Nathan Grayson

If you visit this site, odds are, you’re a power user. You’ve listened to your mother/sister/grandmother drone on about their progress in Sorority Life II: Vampire Farmville or whatever it’s called, but you were too busy thinking about real games to care. Real games like Sid Meier’s Civilization… which is coming to Facebook in 2010 .

“I wanted to let you know we’ll soon be looking for beta testers to help us develop a unique new way to play Civilization. Ever since we finished Civilization Revolution last year, I’ve been looking at ways of expanding the Civ gameplay experience to include solo, competitive and cooperative play to take advantage of the uniqueness of social networks. We’re calling this project Civilization Network and the full game will be available next year on Facebook,” said series creator Sid Meier.

The sure-to-be horrendously addictive game will allow players to join hands or cross swords en route to establishing the ultimate civilization. Nothing’s off-limits here – not even the vilest, most underhanded form of warfare ever conceived: Facebook notification spam.

Blech. Thank goodness for Twitter. Oh, hey ImaReeLGuRL24576, how are you today?
