Civilization III Website Launches
6:00 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

An official web site for the empire-building sim Civilization III has appeared online, featuring information and images concerning this much-anticipated sequel. MacSoft will be publishing the Mac OS version of this title of strategy and diplomacy; as with the previous games in this series, players take on a godlike role shaping the development of an entire civilization from the spear and hand-axe to nanotech and space exploration.

The site will profile a "civ of the week" and even mentions the Mac OS version of the game, promising that system requirements are "coming soon." There is also an essay by Sid Meier on the inspirations behind and history of the Civ series, and the beginnings of a FAQ to handle any questions you might have.

The site appears to be intended as a dynamic resource for those anticipating the game, so be sure to stop back often if you are interested. This game is expected to be released in late 2001, and the Mac version should be close behind the PC launch.
