Nachdem die Civ-Reihe neben dem PC mittlerweile auch die Konsolen und Handhelds unsicher gemacht hat, steht jetzt der Sprung in die Welt der Social Games an: Wie 2K Games mitteilt, wurde die geschlossene Beta-Phase von Civilization World beendet. Der Facebook-Titel ist jetzt allen Nutzern zugänglich.
Wer wissen will, ob sich das Suchtpotenzial auch in Free-to-play-Gefilden entfalten kann, benötigt erwartungsgemäß einen Facebook-Account und kann dann auf dieser Webseite loslegen.
