Civilization Colonization incoming - first screens

2K Games is bringing a new title "conceived from the ground up" exclusively to PC this autumn in the form of Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization.

If that wasn't enough to tickle your taste buds, you'll be thrilled to know that it'll not only use the Civilization IV engine, it'll take advantage of it. Colonization doesn't even need the original Civilization IV game to run it.

"We've received many requests from fans over the years to bring back Colonization and now seemed to be the perfect time to do that," said Sid Meier. "The Civilization IV engine provided a fantastic foundation for a new Colonization experience and allowed us to create something great for both new players and long time fans of the game."

So you'll lead one of four European nations on a quest to conquer and rule the New World, says the blurb. You'll get to shepherd the little people from the oppressive motherland, discover a new world, and negotiate, trade and fight with the natives.

For a detailed look at how Civilization IV: Colonization is shaping up, be sure to pick up the next issue of PC Gamer for an exclusive hands-on preview. In the meantime, you can check out thelatest screenshere.
