Firaxis unveiled a teaser of Civilization IV: Colonization. The game will be released on September 22, it's the fourth game in the Civilization IV series but it's a standalone product, you will not need Civilization IV to play Colonization. The game developer says Colonization is a complete reimagining of the 1994 classic, it will feature four European nations and the primary goal in the game will be to conquer and rule the New World.
"We've received many requests from fans over the years to bring back Colonization and now seemed to be the perfect time to do that," said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. "The Civilization IV engine provided a fantastic foundation for a new Colonization experience and allowed us to create something great for both new players and long time fans of the game."
In Colonization, players lead one of four European nations on a quest to conquer and rule the New World. Players will be challenged to guide their people from the oppressive motherland, discover the New World, and negotiate, trade and fight with both the natives and other nations as they acquire power and fight for freedom and independence.
