Civilizing Facebook: CivWorld Is Live


The Firaxis team are taking a few pages from Sid Meier's great gaming history and placing then in the Facebook. The "social" - or maybe "casual", I don't really know - version of Civ, named CivWorld, went into an opne beta today, and it actually looks pretty good. I am basing that on having kicked off a game myself after watching the video which I've embedded below. If there's a problem I can report on up front, well, it keeps timing out, and is maddeningly laggy. Still, it is just a beta, and one that is too popular for its own good, I suppose. Anyway, I am sure we'll be hearing more about this soon.
