2K has announced a brand new expansion for Civilization V called Brave New World which is set to release this summer.
The expansion will add nine new civilizations, new leaders, units, and buildings. As well as this a new Culture Victory condition requires players to use Great Artists, Writers, and Musicians to create masterpieces to influence how other civilizations behave.
A new World Congress will also be added which can vote on issues such as imposing trade sanctions on rogue nations. “A new lead into the Diplomatic Victory ensures that the end of the game will be more dynamic than ever before,” Firaxis said.
Finally there’s new International Trade Routes, eight new wonders, and two new scenarios. “After adding a number of great new features to Civilization 5 with the Gods & Kings expansion, the team continued to search for ways to create even more exciting gameplay through new systems and features,” said Civilization creator Sid Meier.
“We’re happy to bring our fans another ambitious expansion that will provide hours and hours of new Civilization experiences.”
