Sid Meier has announced that Civilization Network will hit Facebook next year.According to Meier’s post on the CivFanatics forums, the original designer of Civ has been “looking at ways of expanding the Civ gameplay experience to include solo, competitive and cooperative play to take advantage of the uniqueness of social networks.”You’ll be able to join up with your friends in order to create “the world’s most powerful, richest, smartest, or just plain coolest civilization,” with plenty of options available. If you sign up, you’ll be able to “coordinate your strategy to win great battles, share your technology to jump ahead of your rivals, lobby your family and friends to form your own government and win vital elections, manage and grow your cities to maximize production and happiness, spy on your enemies, and work with your friends to create the great Wonders of the World.”So, uh, it’s Civilization, then.The full version isn’t due out until 2010, but there’s going to be a closed beta “soon.”You can follow all the info on Civilization Network over on the game’s official Facebook page.
