Civilization V and Demo Released

2k Games announces the release of Sid Meierís Civilization V, the highly anticipated turn-based strategy sequel. Here's word on the game: "Civilization V takes this definitive strategy game series in new directions with the introduction of hexagonal tiles allowing for deeper strategy, more realistic gameplay and stunning organic landscapes for players to explore as they expand their empire. The brand new engine delivers a spectacular visual experience that brings players closer to the Civ world than ever, featuring fully animated leaders interacting with players from a screen-filling diplomatic scene and speaking in their native language for the first time. Wars between empires feel massive, as armies dominate the landscape and combat is more exciting and intense than ever before. The addition of ranged bombardment allows players to fire weapons from behind the front lines, challenging them to develop clever new strategies to guarantee victory on the battlefield. In addition to the new gameplay features debuting in Civilization V, an extensive suite of community, modding and multiplayer elements will also be available." In addition to being in retail stores, the game can also be purchased online through Direct2Drive and Steam, with Steam also offering downloads of the promised playable demo.

I originally ran the DX11 version in fullscreen, but at one point, there was a 3D-rendering bug that corrupted the landscape, so I went back to the main menu. I closed the app and ran the DX9 version. I was able to play through the rest of the game without crashes.

Yeah, DX11 is totally borked. I haven't had any issues at all with DX9.

The game is fun. It's engrossing. It's definitely Civ. It's just different. I can't make a judgment on it yet, but it seems promising.
