2K Games has today announced that it will be releasing a new stand-alone expansion pack for Civilization IV
this autumn, titled Colonization
The game is completely stand alone then, despite being titled as an expansion pack, and is essentially a remake of Sid Meier's Colonization
series from the days of yore. Players are given a chance to play as one of four leading nations in the race to take over the then-New World.
As far as extra features go, Civ IV: Colonization
is boasting new and improved graphics and new diplomacy features for those pansy hippies who don't want to just battle it out like real
strategy game players.
Last time we had a crack at a Civilization
game was with the last Civ IV
expansion pack - Beyond the Sword
, which we really rather liked. With the huge selection of mods and tweaks in that though, you've got to wonder if the world really needs another Civ
game just yet.
Of course, the answer to that is pretty obvious - according to your reactions in the forums
, the Civ
series is one of the most popular games among bit-tech
readers - solely responsible for inducting many of you into the gaming lifestyle.

game, or are you still enjoying the originals? Let us know in the forums
