    Thought it was time that this had it's own thread.

    Due next year and already getting some good write-ups, and hopefully causing some of the complacency at Take2 and Firaxis to receive a kick up the backside.

    It looks like battles switch to some kind of tactical turn based combat engine. Probably what comes from having Creative Assembly as neighbours in the Sega stable.

    Only a general trailer around at the mo. But no doubt more to follow, looks like Sega are chucking some money at this one.

    It's an interesting take on it for sure. I've got some reservations of how the culture merging will work in practice, but if they nail it then it has a lot of potential as I've seen it come up in a lot of Civ-wishlists.

    I didn't think Sega were in a position to chuck money at anything.

    @Decks and if they were it should be Virtua Fighter 6!

    I seem to remember that Sega's PC divisions were doing pretty well, so it makes sense that they'd be willing to back that side of things.
