2K and Firaxis Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World is currently in development and will be available this summer for PC and Mac! The expansion plans to bring a massive amount of new content to the Civ V experience with the introduction of international trade. There also plans to be a focus on culture and diplomacy gameplay as well.
“After adding a number of great new features to Civilization V with the Gods & Kings expansion, the team continued to search for ways to create even more exciting gameplay through new systems and features,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development for Firaxis Games. “We’re happy to bring our fans another ambitious expansion that will provide hours and hours of new Civilization experiences.”
When Sid Meier says hours and hours of new Civilization V experiences, he really means days and days, and for some of us, weeks and months. So what can you count on in this expansion to add even more hours to the hours you have already sunk into Civ V? Here is the official breakdown (courtesy of Take-Two):

No official release date has been mentioned yet, but it’s no worry. We have plenty to do in Civ V until the expansion comes out this summer.
