    Thank you!

    So the Alhambra is one of the new Wonders? (Under Chivalry)

    :/ They didn't change the Aztec UA? Its bad enough it has a stupid name, you think they'd at least update it to give piety instead of culture.

    In the 3rd screenshot down from the top. What is that on the hills above Truro, a new resource?

    You're right, they didn't; I was really hoping that they would go ahead and buff it a bit while at the same time giving it some more sense. Something to the order of culture and faith.

    Things I noticed.

    Screenshot 1.
    * Alhambra is a wonder?
    * A missionary
    * Himeji is not under chivalry anymore.

    Screenshot 3:
    * New tech: Drama & Poetry.
    Provides National Epic and something else, something new.

    Screenshot 4:
    * UA of Austria:
    Can spend gold to annex or puppet an allied city state
    * UU of Austria: Hussar (Screenshot 5)
    * UB of Austria: Coffee House (Screenshot 5)
    * UA/UU/UB of Arabia, Iroquois, Spain, Aztecs and France are unchanged .
    (Weird, to me it'd make sense if they'd changed the Aztec UA to faith instead of culture)

    Weird
    I thought all new wonders were known by now.
    Maybe when they said 9 new wonders they were only referring to world wonders and some of the known ones -like Great Firewall- were national wonders, or maybe the Alhambra icon is for an ordinary building, but I don't believe that. And Himeji Castle has been moved.
    Also Poetry is a new tech that gives theaters and unlocks National Epic.
    They're really moving the wonders around.

    The other icon is Amphitheatre.

    ALHAMBRA!!! :D

    Great find Rob, looking forward to this! I'm surprised they haven't changed Spain's UA to reflect faith though, and I'm pleased they've got Hussars as the Austria UU. Finally, a UB for Europe!

    EDIT: The nine wonders are so far:

    Hubble
    Alhambra
    Petra
    Great Firewall
    Neaschwanstein
    Pisa
    Djenne
    CN Tower
    Terracotta Army

    All nine world wonders are now known

    Well, it was never certain if the Great Firewall was a national or a world wonder, but I think we can safely assume it's a national wonder.
    Edit: Oh, we are at nine now, thought we had more than nine wonders. Nevermind then.

    I also wonder if they'll change Isabella's backdrop? (doubt it, but I always thought that was the Alhambra)

    They didn't change Spain's as well, which is weirder. Perhaps they are polishing or working on something but the text isn't updated yet.

    Judging by the rest of the screen, I guess it's just a glitch (or a glitched natural wonder).

    Minor detail: It says LADY Boudicca on one of the Celtic screenshots, does that mean we'll no longer have female lords?! ;)

    The_J: Yeah, not too pleased about the Spanish.

    Anyone know what the Coffee House replaces?

    My guess is the Theater, with some culture and some gold.

    I saw the book icon on the new unit and immediately thought... "Great Librarian?"

    But no, it was just a missionary. :(

    Montov: Theater, really? I would almost think... Garden? Maybe Austrian Coffeehouses are not like American ones...

    I dont think they'll fix the Spanish and Arabic UA's, in order to promote compatibility between Vanilla CiV and G&K
