For those that just can't get enough information on Infogrames' upcoming strategy title Sid Meier's Civilization III, GameSpy has been kind enough to post several new screen shots that reveal some of the new and improved details of this upcoming game.

Prominently featured in the majority of the shots is the new science/technology tree of Civ III. Several different ones are shown, including one for Ancient Times, the Middle Ages, the Industrial Ages, and Modern Times. The Ancient Times tree contains technologies such as Horseback Riding, The Wheel, and Warrior Code. The Middle Ages has ideas such as Theory of Gravity, Chivalry, and Music Theory. The Industrial Ages contain concepts like Advanced Flight, Radio, and Combustion. Finally, the Modern Times have familiar concepts such as Integrated Defense, Stealth, and Genetics.

Also featured is a shot displaying Civ III's new Culture feature, a rating that will affect how well-liked or admired a civilization will be to other civilizations; this will greatly affect diplomacy and possibly prompt imitators. Each major city will have its own culture rating, and various buildings such as Palaces, Temples, and Colosseums can be constructed to improve that rating.

The final screenshot shows the player in diplomatic communications with India's ruler -- Gandhi, at this point in history -- who is offering one gold per turn in exchange for iron. Also shown are what appear to be the player's current agreements, including a rite of passage contract and military alliances.

Civ III seems to be coming along quite nicely. This game is expected to be released in late 2001, and the Mac version should closely follow the PC launch, courtesy of MacSoft and Westlake Interactive.
