    It's not exactly an official source of info, but the guy who runs this portal is a really trustworthy person:
    http://well-of-souls.com/civ/civbe_overview.html

    The portal gathers information about upcoming Civ titles and serves them in a very neat fashion. It's updated pretty much right after vital info is provided by official sources.

    Arioch, big thanks to You!

    @civilization on Twitter linked a 2K YouTube video which is new. I can't link right now because I'm on a mobile device. However, it elaborates just a bit on the Great Mistake. Apparently there is a conflict which destabilizes the world powers and the planet falls into a dark age. When humanity emerges, old borders and cultures are reconfigured.

    PC Gamer mag will have an article on CivBE in their next issue. A nice spread of tile improvements is even on the cover.

    The cover was revealed today on Twitter.
