Civilization III, Play The World Preview
8:44 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story

GameSpy has published a preview of Play the World, the much anticipated expansion to Sid Meierís Civilization III. Play the World extends the game in three ways, it adds eight new civilizations, a scenario editor, and most importantly, multiplayer. This preview goes into detail on all three. Here is an excerpt:

The multiplayer mode will support a number of scenario types, including Elimination, Domination, and "Regicide", which actually gets the king onto the playing field as you attempt to assassinate him. Depending on how the scenario is set up, players can alternate turns or take them simultaneously, or even use the new "Turnless" mode, which should prove useful in larger multiplayer games.
This preview does not really cover much territory that hasnít already been explored in previews on other sites, but if you havenít seen them it is certainly worth a look. It is fairly clear from this preview that Play the World is progressing well and is likely to be a very good expansion, sadly there has not yet been an announcement of when to expect a Mac version.
