|Here is what Sid Meier had to say about
When people write to us or tell us about their most memorable
Civ experience, they usually talk about the first time they built up a powerful military
force or built a really cool unit and crushed another civ. Focusing on your military
strength is always a lot of fun and a very successful strategy in the Civilization series.
It's a concept we have a lot of great new ideas for in CivIII and we'll be telling you
more about them as time goes on. In addition, we're focusing on new concepts that will
provide players with more interesting pathways and directions to explore. In CivIII
players will be able to build powerful civs by creating a strong cultural and art base, or
by developing and protecting trade routes that can carry precious resources to cities, or
by being a savvy and respected diplomat. These concepts all played significant roles in
shaping and defining some of the greatest Civilizations in history and will now be an
integral part of the gameplay in Civilization III.
We're also working on easy-to-use customization tools that will provide players with many
options to create their own individual and unique civ games and share them with other Civ
fans. We're excited about the possibilities to build a stronger online Civilization
community - one that promotes and rewards cooperation as well as competition.
Civ has always been intuitive and easy to understand for strategy fans. We āre now
working even harder to make Civ a game that can be easily played and enjoyed by both
casual and avid gamers. We're streamlining some of the more complicated information
screens and simplifying the interface so that everyone can easily and effectively manage
their civs. Civ III will continue to offer an experience that is easy to get into but
provides as much depth as a player would like.
It's been a lot of fun for the team at Firaxis to take a fresh look at a game that has
been very successful and to build on it with a lot of new interesting gameplay ideas and
concepts, along with updating the look and feel of the game with a completely new graphics
engine. We've got some of the best talent in the industry working on the game, including
many of the people who helped create Civ and CivII, and we've been greatly assisted and
energized by the support and suggestions from the gaming community. We look forward to
giving you the most fun Civ game yet!
