2K and Firaxis Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World, the second expansion pack for the award-winning Civilization V, is now available for Windows-based PC and Mac in North America and will be available internationally on July 12, 2013. Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World brings a massive amount of new gameplay to the Civilization V experience, providing gamers with even more rewarding ways to achieve world domination through enhanced trade, culture, diplomacy and more.
"Civilization V: Brave New World fits the pedigree of robust expansions for the Civilization series," said Sarah Anderson, senior vice president of marketing for 2K. "Once again, the team at Firaxis Games has exceeded our expectations and delivered yet another stellar Civ experience."
Developed by Firaxis Games and brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media, Civilization V: Brave New World provides new depth and replayability through the introduction of international trade and a focus on culture and diplomacy. The player’s influence around the world will be affected by creating a number of Great Works across a variety of crafts, choosing an ideology for their civilization, and proposing global resolutions in the new World Congress. As players move through the ages of history, they will make critical decisions that influence relationships with all civilizations in the game world.
"Civilization V: Brave New World epitomizes how the Civilization series continues to grow and evolve," added Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. "We’re constantly looking at ways for fans to have completely new experiences playing Civ, and now there are even more ways to achieve world domination than ever before."
In addition to the new gameplay systems such as international trade routes, Great Works and ideologies, Civilization V: Brave New World features all of the new gameplay systems that were added in Civilization V: Gods & Kings including religion, espionage, new types of city-states, technologies, wonders and more.
