Civilization World Summary
Videogame legend Sid Meier promises that for "as long as fans keep asking", the Civilization series will keep on releasing for PC. It's gone console, mobile and social.
The long-running IP has "roots in PC gaming" and won't neglect them. Meier would also "love to make another version" of Alpha Centauri but they don't own it.
The Facebook version of Sid Meier's famous strategy game, Civilization World, is now in open beta for all who want to check it out. Meier himself worked on the social network-powered Civ title.
Firaxis Games has sent out a short but sweet notice that Civilization World would be going into open beta sometime in the next week or two. The Facebook-based game has been enjoying an alpha test, so apparently, the build has advanced enough to have an open test.
