Oerwinde Posted April 29, 2006 Share Posted April 29, 2006 (edited) So some more details have surfaced in the last while, the 10 new leaders are: Augustus Ceasar(Rome) Stalin(Russia) Churchill(English) Rameses II(Egypt) Hannibal(Carthage, new Civ) Shaka(Zulu, new Civ) Brennus(Celts, new Civ) Ragnar(Vikings, new Civ) Mehmed II(Ottomans, new Civ) Wang Kon(Koreans, new Civ) The new civs have the same unique units they had in Civ 3, except for the Ottomans, who now have the Jannisary. The Warlord unit does the same thing as other great people in that he can research tech, join cities, contribute to golden ages, etc. But his unique ability is to join itself to a unit, giving them combat bonuses. The Vassal State diplomatic option allows you to subjugate civs you beat the hell out of or are significantly weaker than you. Basically its a one sided alliance. They give you tribute, their land counts as yours for domination victory, and they automatically declare war on your enemies(without cancelling the agreement if you start the war) They added unique city graphics for some of the various civs. And it also looks like some of the civs have unique graphics for various units. One screenshot showed 3 different archer graphics. Looks like the great wall is in for new wonders. From the screenshots it looks like it acts like an aqueduct when it shows on the map, only it runs itself along your territorial lines. In the mongol horde scenario the Mongols get a unique unit called the settler camp that lets them build units on the move, so they can roam the land destroying everything in their path without suffering from bad unit production. Theres more, thats just the more interesting bits. http://pc.ign.com/articles/703/703730p1.html http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/civili...tml?sid=6148499 Edited April 29, 2006 by Oerwinde The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.
