    Aprils fools...
    Thumbs up though for some of the pranks... like Mecha G for Japan and atomic bomb replacement for Persia (although that might be a little bit closer to home than is comfortable).

    You just know this must be an april fools day prank. C'mon, really... any other day this would be a contradiction.

    I can't decide whether the fact that people seem to be scouring this spoof for actual facts is a testament to the quality of the hoax, or the desperation of certain CivFanatics for any new info... :p

    Okay... I'll bite... (just for the hell of it :crazyeye: )
    If one has to do all this, before building the first city, creating new units could be interesting. What would you have to do? Convert a wild animal?
    2k Games is going to have to add some kind of monkey's... and set the timeline back to approx. 500k BC.

    I don't know, they had animals in Civ4, so anything is possible.

    Absolutely owned by this, good prank.

    Think it was our sheer hunger for new info that made us over look the more obvious parts. Mecha Godzilla was just too awesome to doubt.

    I knew this was a hoax the moment I saw that a Mecha Godzilla would have a penalty against cities; historically, a Mecha Godzilla would have a bonus against cities.

    I hope this is a 1-April joke.
    If not then:
    Aaahh!
    It causes me pain in the heart that the makers have chosen foolishly.
    They will never learn it.
    Annoying,puny Zulu!!!!!!!!!!
    I officially hate Civilization V and I will never buy this joke!
    Where can I post a complaint?
    This is ridiculous,absurd and foolish.
    The makers are joking right?
    The foolish people will inherit the Earth,but the wise people will inherit the universe!

    How are you guys do sure this is false? No one has said whether it is or not.

    I actually hope some of this is real. Especially the Pre-Historic era. C'mon, somehow the mod Caveman To Cosmos (though super cluttered) works right?

    And who said there are no Zulus.. unless I hear 2k say this was an actual April Fool's joke, I do think there's chance for this be true.. especially since it is already pulled and 2k stated that this was released earlier than It should? Though I gotta admit, "Don't Eat That tech" sounds like a joke.
