Civilization Revolution 2 for iOS releasing on July 2nd

2K Announces Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 Coming to iOS July

2K today announced that Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2, the sequel to one of the most popular and award-winning, turn-based strategy games to hit the App Store, is launching as a premium title on July 2 for iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and iPod Touch. The title will be coming soon to Android devices.

Civilization Revolution 2 is the first Civilization game to be developed exclusively for mobile platforms, delivering high-impact graphics and new gameplay and controls that capitalize on the mobile technology advancements since the original Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution launched more than five years ago. The game will combine the core tactical elements of the series with intuitive controls and a friendly user interface - designed specifically for mobile gamers on touch-pad devices. Civilization fans will also recognize the 16 historical leaders found in the first game, including Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Napoleon, alongside leaders such as Churchill and Kennedy, who are making their appearance in the series for the first time.

The original Civilization Revolution, designed by Firaxis Games in 2008, was a watershed game for console and handheld systems and brought to iPhone in 2009. In 2010, the title was optimized for Apple's high-definition iPad and has since achieved an average rating of 4/5 stars among iOS users. Staying true to the series, Civilization Revolution 2 will allow players to lead a civilization from the dawn of man to the modern age, and go head-to-head with history's most intrepid leaders as they wage war, conduct diplomacy, discover new technologies, and build the most powerful empire the world has ever known in a race for ultimate supremacy.

Interesting. I wonder if this is going to be a premium quality game like X-COM or a buggy free to play game like Dungeon Keeper. I hope for the former but I fear it will be a later.

You got my hopes very much up when I read the title! Then I read the article, Civilization Revolution 2. Still good, don't get me wrong, but having Civ2 classic would have been astonishing!

They said it would be PREMIUM so I'm guessing it will be priced similar to the first one with a few IAP.

I forgot to add "Revolution" to the thread title...oops!

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this mainly for multiplayer.....Im still playing the first one after all this time!

I don`t mind putting some money where my mouth is if the Game doesn`t have some iAP but if it`s just another of 2K's iAP Festivals I don`t care if Civilization Revolution 2 becomes another failed investment for them and they have to close down another of their Studios. I hope for the best but also preparing for the worst....
