Veteran gamers rejoice as Sid Meier and Fraxis announce Civilization 5 is in the works. New additions are expected but the most surprising is the move from a square game board to Hexagon based board. Further building on the extensible capabilities introduced in Civ4 mod developers should be feeling the warm glow of improved support for user driven addons.
Now you'll excuse me while I have to readjust all my project plans to account for missing testers and developers who have fainted from the news.... and block out some vacation for potential release dates.
