Civilization IV Unit Promotions, New Screenshots
7:55 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Worthplaying.com has posted a short article explaining a new feature for Firaxis' upcoming game Civilization IV. The new unit promotions feature will expand upon Civ III's system to give players a wide range up upgrade options for veteran units, some of which will apply only to specific unit types.

In Civ III, unit promotions involved rising in level from green to veteran to elite and each level added a hit point and a small combat bonus. For Civ IV, we decided to build on this system and make promotions much more intricate and customizable by allowing players to choose from over 20 different bonus types (many with multiple levels, for a total of over 40 available promotions). The numbers and types of available bonuses differ per unit type and only land and sea military units can acquire them (air units are different).
Civilization IV is scheduled for release on the PC sometime in November. There is no word on a Mac version of the game yet but the series' history with the platform makes it a strong possibility. For the full review and a collection of screenshots follow the link below. For even more new screenshots check out 3DGamers latest offerings as well.
