Civilisation 5 Demo available now

58 second read


StarCraft 2 isn’t the only major RTS being released on PC this year with the second big hitting RTS of the year preparing for release in the next week.

Civ 5 is the next in the long line of the fantastic Civilisation series and at E3 this year we were given a brief rundown of all the improvements that have been made to the title.

In essence if you are a fan of the Civilisation series then you are going to love Civ 5 which holds true to the original ethos of the series and yet brings in some subtle yet big improvements such as now featuring a hexagonal tile to increase your forces mobility.

If you haven’t been a big fan or haven’t tried the series then this is the good news you were waiting for. 2K have announced that a demo is now available via Steam for you to download and give it a try.

I highly recommend it for RTS fans as early reviews are mostly placing in the 90’s.

    Can you call Civ games RTS though? It’s turned based so isn’t it TBS? :whistle:

    It’s definitely not an RTS (REAL TIME), unless CiV5 is boldly going in a new direction. 😛 Fix it Gavin! Turn based games are not Real Time Strategy games.
