Firaxis Games has just announced the next expansion for Civilization V, titled “Brave New World”, and it will arrive on Mac and PC this summer. This will be the second “massive” expansion, bringing in a number of improvements and features. The “Gods and Kings” expansion was the last big expansion, and it was just as popular as the standalone game. Gods and Kings added Religion and espionage, and Brave New World will bring in trade networks and ideology.
“Civilization V: Brave New World continues the strong tradition of ambitious expansion packs that fans have come to expect from the Civilization franchise,” said Sarah Anderson, senior vice president of marketing for 2K. “Brave New World is destined to continue the strong Civilization lineage that already includes massive expansions such as Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword and Civilization V: Gods & Kings.” The team is continuing to add in a number of new features for the game, and I’m sure this won’t be last.
After adding a number of great new features to Civilization V with the Gods & Kings expansion, the team continued to search for ways to create even more exciting gameplay through new systems and features,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development for Firaxis Games. “We’re happy to bring our fans another ambitious expansion that will provide hours and hours of new Civilization experiences.”
