    Apolyton Re-releases: Apolyton University

    The Apolyton University is famous for it's knowledge about Civilization. Since Civilization 2 tens of thousands have visited the University to both study Civilization and learn others about Civ. In this new iteration of the Apolyton University we have combined the strength of a wiki with a forum. Write about the many possible strategies, tactics, approaches, hints and knowledgeable things about Civilization V, and then discuss them at the same place. Improve the articles together, rate the best articles so that qualify will surface and nonsense will sink.

    Enjoy the Apolyton University and get better at Civilization V!

    and "Will you form a pact of secrecy against..."

  • Civilization V Multiplayer Concepts: City Defense and the Choke

    Civilization V Multiplayer Concepts: City Defense and the Choke

    With Civilization V only roughly two weeks away it's time to think about the new features and how they may affect Multiplayer. Robert Plomp already has started a discussion about how one unit per tile will affect MP. I'll try to take a look at a new feature of Civ V that has the potential to change Multiplayer at least in the early stages of the game radically: The new defense abilities of cities. As the game isn't out yet some of this is based on assumptions and speculations, but I'll revisit this topic once we have a little more experience with the live game.

  • Civ V, Multiplayer - the future
    by ·Imhotep·

    Now Civ V is out for roughly 5 months and a lot of people have stated their opinion about the game. Some have expressed that they are content with the game, and that they have a lot of fun with it. Others - and seemingly the majority of players - have stated that the game is a failure in most aspects, and that they have put it aside after a few months or weeks even. I'm not going to give judgement on who is right on this matter, I'll just describe my own view on the game in general and most of all in regards to an aspect I have deeply loved with Civ IV - the Multiplayer side of the game.

  • Free DLC for D2D customers scheduled for December 2010
    by Snakpakk

    Snakpakk, Community Manager of Direct2Drive, posted in our forums in response to his questions about the 'free DLC' for D2D customers:

    "Here is the deal on the Civ 5 DLC:
    The Mongols Civilization and Scenario Pack- is a free gift from 2K for all the Civ fans out there. Due out October 25
    The Babylonian Civ pak- gives none Deluxe version owners the ability to play as Babylonians (deluxe owners already have this) Due October 25th for $4.95

    If you pre-ordered from D2D then your free DLC is due out in December. Sadly I don't have details on that yet but keep a eye on D2D's main page for the announcement. Hope this helps clear the air.

    Good news for everyone who bought civ5 through Direct2Drive! And the speculation about the December DLC release

  • Genghis Khan released as FREE DLC on October 25th!
    by Robert

    The first DLC for Civilization V will arrive on October 25th and distributed through Steam! A free new civilization and leader, Genghis Kahn of the Mongols, will be released together with a Scenario Pack for free! As a gift in answer to the "Civ Fanatics" who are "very well organized". Perhaps in response to the many troubles people had with Civ5 so far. That gift is highly appreciated!

    According to a screenshot on the Mongols ability is: "Mongol Terror", which means: "Combat strength +30% when fighting City-State units or attacking a City-State itself. All mounted units receive +1 movement points"
    The Mongols have two unique units; the well known Keshik and the Khan.

  • Civilization V vs Civilization IV v Civilization III - A brief set of thoughts
    by Skybird

    Having played Civilization I, II, III, and IV constantly since they were first released, and through the various incarnations of Warlords, Beyond the Sword etc., but having never played Civilization Revolution, I was looking forward with a great deal of anticipation to the release of Civilization V. I cannot remember the last time a PC release found me waiting in the damp chill of autumn air outside my local game store before opening, but Civilization V managed it. I know I could have bought it on Steam, but old habits... Having played the new version for the past few days, I would make the following observations:
