Everybody wants to rule the world, but only Civilization lets you do it from the comfort of your own home. The block-busting strategy series returns with the biggest overhaul in gameplay and graphics in its history.
Mixing the depth and versatility of previous PC sequels with the accessibility and pace of console hit Civilization Revolution, this all-new game lets you nurture a civilisation from prehistoric times and into the space age. That's the same as always - as is the ability to win by either military, diplomatic or cultural means - but the way you actually play the game is completely different.
Moving and attacking with your armies, monitoring and building your cities, and negotiating with allies and enemies - everything is now easier, quicker and more fun. With a revamped multiplayer hub and in-built tools to help you customise the game however you want this is the ultimate refinement of the ultimate strategy game.
Rise of Nations: The biggest revamp in Civilization's history improves everything from the graphics to the artificial intelligence, with a game that's easier to play than ever.
Top to Bottom: Major interface changes make a more believable game world and an easier game to navigate, with hex-based movement and naturally growing city borders.
War Games: All-new battle system makes combat quicker and more tactical than ever before. Cities can now attack units directly and weight of numbers is no longer a guarantee of victory.
Online Conquest: Compete and co-operate with other fans online and take advantage of the in-built tools to enable fan made mods and game-changing extras.
