Civilization III: Play the World Preview
6:00 AM | Vern Xiong | Comment on this story

Under Ground Online (UGO) has a two part preview of Civilization III: Play the World developed by Firaxis and published by Infrogrames. The preview written by Jonah Falcon goes into detail with networking and multiplayer options.

Here is a little of the preview:

Falcon: Civilization III has quite a few multiplayer modes in its arsenal - play-by-email, hotseat, classic turn-based, simultaneous, and turnless. The first two are self-evident, and don't require an Internet connection. The next three do, and Play The World makes them extremely easy to implement. Clicking on "Multiplayer" on the main menu brings up a Battle.net-ish chatroom.The main part of the screen features a list of servers with games currently available on the Internet or a LAN. A panel to the left includes the self-evident options "Host", "Join", "Refresh/Cancel Refresh", "Location", "Internet/LAN" and "Filters". The bottom part features a chat area.

Jump on over to UGO to the rest of the preview.
