Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution that was released in 2008 will soon be getting a sequel. However, unlike the original game this one will only be released on mobile platforms. Called Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2, the game will be landing on iOS on July 2nd, followed by an Android port later (although no specific date has been given). The original was also available on iOS and has been among the most popular turn-based strategy games over there.
Since there’s no console version this time around, you can expect Civilization Revolution to be much more optimized for touch screens. The game will combine the core tactical elements of the series with intuitive controls and a friendly user interface. It will also feature 16 historical leaders from the first game, including Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Napoleon, alongside new leaders like Churchill and Kennedy.
There’s no word on a Windows Phone version. Although we’re hoping Firaxis eventually brings one, since the first was was also released on the platform.
