IGN Previews Civilization IV
9:49 AM | Franklin Pride | Comment on this story has posted a preview of Civilization IV. The preview covers the basic abilities and looks of each ruler, the new interface, and a few of the additions and changes from the Civilizations of the past.

While the basic premise of the game is largely unchanged, the designers wanted to question some basic assumptions about how the game works and break free of some of the series' bad habits. As a result, the new game seems much more streamlined and full of personality. Combat animations are specific to the units involved in the fighting, the diplomatic screen shows lively and expressive opponents, and short movies once again announce the completion of specific wonders. Gamers who have been turned off by the drier presentation of previous versions are likely to find Civilization IV to be much more engaging this time around.
The game has not yet been announced for the Mac, but has a high probability of being released for the Macintosh since most of the previous incarnations of the game have made it to the Mac. Stay tuned.
