Developed by XLGAMES using CryEngine and currently an Asia-exclusive, Civilization Online is preparing for its Closed Beta phase on 27th May in South Korea. The main detail revealed 3 playable civilizations (Chinese, Rome and Egypt), with Aztec reserved for the future.
According to foreign reports, players will start off during the The Renaissance/ Middle Ages period. Each civilization will take around 2 days to complete, with 3 stages of progression (more to come in the future). Other than the classic gameplay, new multi-player elements will be added as well.
