2K and Firaxis' Civilization Revolution [$2.99] is at long last getting a sequel - and it's coming next week as a mobile exclusive. Civilization Revolution 2 releases on July 2nd for iOS with Android coming later, if that's your sort of thing. There's the 16 historical leaders from the original, with new ones to play as, including Winston Churchill. There's additional units, technology, buildings, better graphics, and a new Scenario Mode to play in.

Civilization Revolution 2

Civ Rev 2 will launch as a premium game, though no price has been announced yet.

    Sweet I was hoping for a sequel to this game. Now if we could get them to bring the newer version of xcom over :)

  • AngryBaby

    Awesome! I have faith in Firaxis to make a legitimate premium follow-up to the hugely satisfying original Civ Revolution. If all goes according to plan, I'll be nuking Ghandi in less than 2 weeks.

  • SoyGreen

    I hope it has a bit more depth and feel of strategy to the game. The first one felt so slimmed down when compared to the full versions. I look forward to your review of it - please do one and touch on the complexity. If it feels like a full civ experience - or if it is still the light version of Civ with the one we have right now on the iPad.

    • ZorakZoran

      Exactly. Hope this time there'll be more depth to it.

  • PoloBaquerizoH

    The best news ever, will wait anxiously for this insta buy!

  • HelperMonkey

    Great news. I hope.
    I'll probably be suckered in regardless of price or improvements.
    Three letters: CIV... And suddenly my wallet just opens up.

    • Ubisububi

      Yeah, good or bad, I'll buy it sight unseen.

      Mmmmmmm... Preeeeeemium...

  • Styrixa

    Woot!

  • g0omba

    I hope that don't go to the "Free" / F2P model.

    • ZorakZoran

      It's premium, it's in the article.

      • Pheebers

        Well, I hate to be a cynic, but the original was premium. Then they added IAP's and completely ruined the balance of play. It was my favorite game for the longest time… Almost broke my heart when they ruined it :(

      • Unfrozen

        IAPs? I didn't notice any in it.

      • Pheebers

        If you've updated in the last year or so they're everywhere.

      • Silverfist

        IAPs are optional, y'know.

  • Utfan

    In the screenshot, it says 3000 BC and there is an infantryman already. Haha

    • BoonyTuesday

      Maybe there is time travel tech?

      • Steve Lockett

        TARDIS FTW!!!! :)

      • BoonyTuesday

        And Re-Tardis for the win again!

  • Ultima12

    This is super awesome news!!! I loved the first one!! Woot!!!!

  • 3mry5

    This is the best thing that's happened for ages!! Omfg I'm embarrassingly exited!!

  • Leydz Boomshaka-Irwin

    I can't even!!!

  • B-Rabbit

    This is the most excited I've been since they released iOS version of Baldur's Gate!

  • Pheebers

    To everyone mashing the instabuy button… I'm not trying to be a Debbie downer, but have you tried Civ Revolution recently?

    • Pheebers

      Sorry, hit post too soon. I'm honestly wondering if fans are satisfied with the state of the game the way it is now. If they make this new game premium with IAPs I am just praying that they get the balance right this time. If they do… I'll be shouting my love from the rooftops!

      • tommet

        Nope. Would far rather have the old Civ Rev back. They mucked it up. Big time. But thats what the quest for the almighty dollar gets ya.

      • Living Legend

        The graphics look...interesting. I really wish that it would look like Civ 5.

  • brainbean

    I just want to see civ 5. If they can port xcom thy can port civ 5. Thy already have a touch screen version for tablet pc

    • denisvjcr

      Totally agree. If they did it with xcom why not with civ?

      • OrangeJews

        Civ 5 is an absolute monster on PC, I doubt that we'll see a portable device capable of running it for at least a year or two.

      • lavenders2

        It would be tough to port. The game uses a lot of screen space and power, and the UI hardly seems touch friendly. It would need some big revisions.

  • Seniku Moonjewel

    As long as it doesn't turn into a greedy fustercluck like rollercoaster tycoon 4 did.. Premium but saturated with consumable iap and timers!!
    CAVEAT EMPTOR!

  • tommet

    Well they added tons of IAP to the original, so forgive me if I take Premium with a grain of salt.

    If this is truly premium, they will get my money.

    • Luciano1084

      I love when you talk like that

  • Mhunt190

    Hurray!!!!!!!!! :D

  • Papa Deuce

    Please make this a good game; I love this kind of game.

    • Luciano1084

      This game will be good.. Oh yes, it will be good

  • Grummie

    Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!

  • Luciano1084

    Oh my lawd!!

  • RinoaHeartily

    I am pretty sure this is done using unity engine.. They look similar to battleheart legacy animation

  • MacGreggles

    $18.99 for basically the same game with enhanced graphics? I don't think so... Disappointing.
    Now if we were talking the new Xcom game...
