In Civilization V you strive to become the ruler of the world by building a civilization from the dawn of humankind to the modern era.
You can play as vast variety of historical empires, each with their own unique advantages and powers. And you’ll find yourself doing battle with these great leaders too. What would you rather have: Elizabeth I’s Ships of the Line or Naresuan’s elephants?
There are multiple ways to win, from dominating all of your opponents and capturing their capitals, to achieving a scientific victory or a diplomatic one. Or you could just destroy every other leader.
The game has an excellent multiplayer, but the single player version against AI controlled players is also very engaging.
Civ V is the fifth edition in Sid Meier’s Civilization series.
