Yes it is here finally, well nearly.
Firaxes and 2k are going to release the new version of civ rev on July 2nd, for iOS and android.
The game will be the first civ rev game to come after the release of Civ 5 so hopefully this means that it might share some characteristics with civ 5, a bit like Civ 5 for mobile (yes it actually existed).
The game from what screenshots have released will have updated graphics new game mechanics and so on.
One thing I was very surprised about though was the fact that it was not coming to PS4 and XBOX one, at least for now
Recently there came a new update to civ rev which ads multiplayer support which is a feature which I have been waiting for since the release of the game 5 years ago. Also they have added something interesting, just like with civ 5 on the mac app store they have added in app purchases. Such as wonders new units etc, so could there be a chance that there will be soon to come expansion packs for Civ rev?
What is your opinion on it?
This year we have seen a leap in mobile technology. So the big question is when will tablets for instance be powerful enough to run Civ 5. Well the truth is probably by end 2013.
So if there was Civ 5 on tablets what should it be. Well I think we all agree that it should have all the same units, buildings, technologies etc. Basically what would be nice is that we have to full fledged Civilization Game. Then we also need to think about the graphics. What should the game look like. Well it could possibly just be the normal graphics you have on the computer but then all turned down to the lowest setting and last what would be the controls. Now this could be a tricky one I mean would could take the basic controls from the Civ rev game (which by the way is on iOS already) and in implement them in Civ 5. But what about like ranged attacks and items of the game that need complicated controls, Gesturers?
Well that is a pretty hard one to solve but if they crack the code having Civilization 5 on mobile would be amazing!
The new civ rev iOS has fixed many bugs. But for some reason that I can not understand is that the game still keeps crashing. Could this be the cause because I am using the original iPad? Not likely I think but it may. Just to tell when the game crashes, the game crashes every time I try to continue my game NOT when I want to start a new game. I find this case quite mysterious.
Has this happened to you please comment and maybe answer this mysterious phenomena.
