Civilization Online Overview

Civilization Online is perhaps the most ambitious title in the long running strategy franchise. The game is designed specifically for the Asian market, but may eventually see a Western release. Civilization Online can best be described as a 3rd person RTS involving multiple factions where each unit is controlled by a separate player. Players work together to construct new buildings, gather resources, and do battle against members of other factions. The only other free-to-play MMO that comes close in gameplay would be Savage and Savage 2.

Civilization Online Key Features:

  • Bite Sized MMORPG – advance from primitive beginnings to a technological superpower during each match.
  • Seamless Faction Warfare – take part in a struggle for world conquest between four factions: Aztecs, Egyptians, Chinese, and Romans.
  • Teamwork Makes the Dream Work – easy to pick up and play, but requires teamwork to come out victorious.
  • Specialized Roles – help your faction in multiple ways. Specialize as a fighter, resource gatherer, or builder.
  • Persistent Card System – earn currency to purchase powerful cards that can be equipped to boost stats.

Development History / Background:

While Civilization Online bears the famous Civilization name, it is unlike any other title in the turn-based strategy series. The game is largely being developed by the Chinese studio XLGames with Western company Take-Two Interactive simply providing guidance and access to the brand. XLGames is also the Chinese publisher of the Korean MMORPG ArcheAge. Like the China exclusive Monster Hunter Online, Civilization Online is being developed on Crytek's CryEngine. The game was shutdown on December 7, 2016.
