Today I would like to talk about a mod thats been out for Civ for a while now but I never got into it. A couple of days ago I decided to give it a go and I loved it. The game ideas and mechanics are changed quite a lot but they make sense and are still amazing. I love all the customized units such as land icon lands are the air balloons. It makes the game feel so much more interesting.
Winning the game is a bit different than in a usual civ game, instead of winning a science victory by going to Alpha Centauri or winning a Domination Victory by conquering all the Capital cities in the world, here in the steampunk mod you win victories by owning the most units or generating the most gold in a period of time, its pretty nice in my opinion.
I recommend you to give it a try and I think you’ll like it.
So I was wondering about something, it occurred to me that every major release of civ happened about every 4-5 years so we might hopefully be expecting some nice news from the guys at Firaxes about a complete new Civ game like something that might be called Civilization 6? Maybe, we won’t know for sure but we will most likely again here something from the guys at Firaxes for sure but if it will be about a new expansion pack or a new game we won’t know yet.
Recently Firaxes announced a new expansion pack called “Brave New World” with this announcement they announced a couple of new civilisation’s with their unique features. But Firaxes did not make any new features available to the public which made me think of something.
Unlike the expansion pack God’s and King’s which was released last year I think that this years expansion pack will include many new cool civilisations but not really cool features like the addition of religion and espionage. I think that this DLC could be but more like the expansion pack Warlords for Civilisation 4.
So what do you think will Brave New World be as big of an expansion pack as God’s and King’s or will it be smaller like the expansion pack for Civilisation, Warlords.
In Pax East Firaxes announced the expansion pack which will probably come out in the summer and this new epansion pack is called Brave new world. Firaxes announced in Pax three new civilizations. They are Assyria, Brazil and Poland
Assyria is a civilization that is industrial and scientific so going for a scientific victory is a good idea.
Brazil is a culture based civilization many of it interesting items are based on tourism
Poland is a military civilization it focuses heavily on mounted horseback, it has a unique unit called the winged Hussar. Poland also gets a free social policy every new era.
Brazil: Pedro II
Poland: Casimir III
Also stay tuned as there are 6 other civilizations to be announced.
The announcement of the expansion pack new world has brought energy back to the civ community something that it has not seen in a while.
Tomorrow I will post a more detailed post about the upcoming expansion pack “New World”
