Games Radar recently posted a preview of Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword, the upcoming expansion for the popular turn based strategy title. The expansion will focus on increasing the play value in the late game after the introduction of gunpowder. The review previews some of the interesting new and improved scenarios included with the expansion.

Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword. Instead, BtS spices things up with a ton of unexpected scenario extras, sporting everything from dragons and spell casters to creepy mechs and zombie-like aliens. With a staggering lineup of such strange and unexpected scenarios, BtS looks ready to carve its way around what might have otherwise been a rather anticlimactic add-on to the Civ IV universe.

Fans of the popular dungeon crawler-like mod, Fall from Heaven, can look forward to a new beefed up campaign in Beyond the Sword. Firaxis designers worked directly with the creators who made the original fantasy-based RPG mod to ensure that the Fall from Heaven: Age of Ice scenario was true to the original.

Youíll control, Kylorin, an ancient hero on a quest to stop the God of Winter, Mulcarn from his nonstop shenanigans of killing everyone with endless sheets of snow. Apparently, the God of Summer was on vacation or taking a nap during the Age of Ice. But thatís OK, because thereís plenty of dungeon crawling goodness infused with traditional Civ IV city-building play to make this four hour adventure worth your while.
A Mac version of the expansion has not yet been announced. For the rest of the preview head over to the link below.
