Sid Meier plans to take advantage of Facebook’s social networking for a new entry into his Civilization game franchise . Dubbed Civilization Network, Meier states that the game “will allow you to join together with your friends to create the world’s most powerful, richest, smartest, or just plain coolest civilization.” Better yet, the game will exist in a “fully persistent environment,” and you’ll be able to play as much as you like for free.
Meier says that testers will be needed for a closed beta, and that the full game is expected to launch in 2010. You can join Meier’s Facebook page for updates.
