Civilization Hitting Facebook this Summer
Facebook is going to have a game worth talking about this summer, or at least I’ll have a Facebook game worth talking about. Supposedly coming out sometime this summer, Civilization World is going to bring that turn-based digital crack that Firaxis is known for and put it on Facebook.
As a regular Civilization V player, and someone who’s been with the series for a long time, I’m skeptical of how the series will adapt to the platform. The game’s turn-based structure could work well — kind of like playing chess via email — but I’m not a fan of microtransactions. Alpha signups are going on now, so be sure to join if you’re interested. I’ve got a team already setup, so if you’d like to play with us, put your group leader as “Robert Hathorne” and the team name as “Intrepid Mackerel.”
