Aspyr Media Officially Announces Civilization V for Mac


Aspyr has officially announced that they will be publishing Sid Meier's Civilization V for the Mac this fall.

Developed by Firaxis Games, Sid Meier's Civilization V reinvigorates the classic turn-based strategy genre with an astonishing new engine built from the ground-up for this flagship edition of the Sid Meier's Civilization franchise. Players are introduced to an entirely new combat system, deeper diplomatic interactions and a cavalcade of expanded features that deliver a fully immersive experience. Players build and defend their empire on their quest to become the greatest ruler the world has ever known.

The Mac version is expected "this holiday season" though no specific date is given. Specific dates, details on pre-orders and availability are to follow. Notably absent in the press release is any mention of Steam as a distribution method. Aspyr does state they have discounted their existing strategy games on GameAgent by 40% in celebration of the announcement.

We had previously reported about the imminent launch of the title for Mac.
