| Games

Aspyr Media on Thursday announced that its upcoming strategy game Sid Meieris Civilization IV, which will ship in late June with a US$49.99 price tag, has now reached the Beta stage of development. That phase is the final one before a game reaches Gold Master and is sent to manufacturing. Civilization IV will be a Universal Binary.

The title builds on its predecessors by introducing a new 3D world as well as such gameplay improvements as an enhanced interface geared toward making newcomers more comfortable, a flexible tech tree that offers more strategic choices, the ability to grow bigger empires, locked alliances, a map editor that supports XML and Python, new civic and religious options, and more.
