Civilization V Now Has a Release Date

Today, 2K Games has announced the release date for Sid Meier’s Civilization V. Mark this date down folks: September 21, 2010. And the title will be released internationally on September 24, 2010.

The Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise has been recognized as one of the greatest PC game franchises of all time, captivating millions of gamers around the world.  Sid Meier’s Civilization V reinvigorates the classic turn-based strategy genre with an astonishing new engine built from the ground-up for this flagship edition of the Civilization franchise. Players are introduced to a heightened tactical combat system; vast, realistic landscapes to explore; deeper diplomatic interactions; and an array of expanded features that deliver a fully immersive experience providing hours of entertainment as players build and defend their empire on their quest to become the greatest ruler the world has ever known. Additionally, the new in-game community hub allows Civ fans to share content and compete against each other without leaving the game, marking a new era that will forever change the “one more turn” addiction of the franchise.

With so much going for Civilization V, let’s just hope it can live up to all the hype. We’ll know soon enough, folks.
