One of the more surprising news which came out of ChinaJoy 2015 was the announcement of the China server for Civilization Online. 360 Games, a subsidiary of the mighty Qihoo, which was more into browser games, was revealed as the publisher, with Jake Song from XLGAMES and senior figures from 2K Games present. If I am not wrong, this is the first PC client game for 360 Games.
According to Jake Song, the contract with 360 Games was signed on 1 August, hence he has no details to share for the China server yet. The business model will be determined by 360 Games. Civilization Online is different from most online titles, as each round lasts one week, with players keeping the points obtained before moving on. I am really surprised Tencent Games is not the publisher!
