Civilization Revolution 2 Plus Comes to PS Vita December 3rd

Hi, I’m Joe Faulstick from 2K – and I’m excited to officially reveal that we’ve been working hard on bringing a great, strategic experience to PS Vita on December 3 with Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 Plus.

If you’re not familiar with the Civilization Revolution games, but love turn-based strategy, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Basically, in Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 Plus, you can build up a civilization from scratch with an interface designed specifically for touchscreens and consoles, or follow along with specific scenarios and see how well you fair against historical world leaders.

Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 Plus, coming exclusively to PS Vita, introduces a number of scenarios, units and world leaders coming from Japan’s history that you won’t find anywhere else.

In one particular scenario (“Journey to the West”), you’ll use TaiZong against Saladin (AI) to capture Byzantium. The other scenarios, “Wrath of Emperor Kublai,” “Samurai Invasion of Korea,” “Z-flag Swirls,” and “Dark Clouds in the Pacific” all take place at different points in Japanese history.

And the same goes for the new Japanese leaders we introduce in this game:

  • Oda Nobunaga: Focused on medieval era/samurai bonus
  • Heihachiro Togo: Naval combat related bonuses
  • Himiko: More diplomatic related, governmental related bonuses

Personally, my favorite is the new Japanese unit – the Yamato battleship. If you’re a history buff like me (or just have fond memories of the Anime, Space Battleship Yamoto / Star Blazers), this unit is particularly cool.

For reference, the Yamato class ships of Imperial Japanese Navy World War II battleships were feared on the open sea. They were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tons at full load and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 inch) 45 Caliber Type 94 main guns. (From Wikipedia). In our game though, the Yamato has much improved attack strength, at the cost of compromised defense capability, compared to normal battleships.

Anyway, if you’re ready to conquer the world, one bus stop (or plane ride) at a time, keep an eye on PlayStation Store‎ for Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 Plus.

  • Love it! Day one!

  • Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $100 per hour. I work through this link. wallstreet34.com

  • I’ll admit it. I don’t buy a lot of Vita games. I play the stuff that is in PS Plus and that is enough to keep me busy.

    But this…this I’ll buy. Partly because I love the series and think it’s perfect for handheld and partly because I want to reward/encourage/vote with my dollar for more games like this to come to the Vita.

    Thanks!

  • Seriously, the vita is a great system. Its not dead, but will remain the way it is as long as the memory cards are priced the way they are. Want an immediate spike? Cut the price of the memory cards by 75%. I have had my vita since launch day and love it. I sprang for the 32 gig card, but I wont buy one for my kids because I cant afford a second mortgage on my home. This has been a complaint since day one.

  • YESS!!! Its funny since Vita came out I always said if they would port Civ Rev and/ or Xcom I would use my psvita soo much…. WE’RE GETTING BOTH!!!! My PSVita is about to get more PT then Lebron, Tom Brady, and Serena Williams combined lol.

  • Very much looking forward to this, however, The Civilization Revolution series are not like the Civ games on PC, especially Civ 2 & 3. They are cut up and simplified for consoles and targeted for younger people to play as well as the norm.

  • Can we get a new Civ for the PS4?!?!

  • This is pretty cool! We need more games of this quality and “pedigree” on the Vita!!!!
