    Because of the Scramble for Africa scenario, there will surely be a few African civs involved. My guess is Zulu and Kongo. Possibly Almohads / Morocco.

    The devs have been clear that this will have more modern aspects to it. That suggests Brazil and/or Australia as tourism civs.

    A few things....
    1) Interesting that Firaxis isn't fully working on this, and that Aspyr is instead doing at least some of the work, maybe a significant amount. Hope they're up to the challenge.
    2) Glad they will attempt to make cultural victories a bit more interesting. Sitting back and never expanding beyond a few cities gets boring after a few victories.
    3) Well, everyone complained about the U.N., and they're finally listening, which is cool. Same with trade routes.
    4) Maybe some of the missing multiplayer features everyone keeps asking for will finally be included?

    How about Khazar for a dark horse? Probably have a UA for multiple religions in their cities, but would be hard to add for people without G&K. Lists are probably becoming similar because we are reaching the bottom of the barrel for well known civilizations.

    @Chris: Morocco sounds interesting. Would that be like a Moors civ? If so, it would culutre-heavy as well.

    I almost forgot to throw in my own speculation.

    Basically the confirmed ones:
    1. Poland
    2. Assyria

    Speculation civs:
    3. Portugal
    4. Zulu
    5. Kongo
    6. Belgium
    7. Indonesia( maybe under a different name)
    8. Brazil
    9. Native American civ

    The last one is the one I'm least sure about, because I'm getting the weird feeling Italy is going to waltz in an surprise us all( and cause a lot of anger on this forum).

    Yes - think the Alhambra. Suits the culture emphasis as well as the Africa scenario.

    Indonesia does sound more likely now. I've never had a good feeling about them being in, but between tourism and trade routes, they have appeal.

    I wonder if the Hanseatic League or Venetian Republic could be dark horse candidates due to trade routes.

    I imagine that's a mistake on the part of IGN. I can't think of any reason why Aspyr would be doing anything other than the Mac ports, or why Firaxis wouldn't be doing all the development work. Polygon's article states:

    I really really hope there won't be more than two European civs.
    Portugal seems likely because of the Africa scenario and their association with international trade and their empire.
    I'm Ok with Poland because Poles on this forum have been whining/begging for years and this should finally shut them up.:D There's a chance that they'll now complain about Casimir III instead of Jan III Sobieski, but I can already see this guy in Civ 5 graphics.



    And since slavs are unrepresented in civilization I'd let three European civs slide if one of them is Bulgaria or Serbia.

    Venice on it's own is unlikely, but I could see them taking Venice and dumping it with all other Italian City States into one Italian civ led by either Garibaldi or one of the Medici.
    Italy seems like a good civ to fit in the new culture and trade mechanics, basically they will be a renaissance trade-culture civ.
    I'm not sure how I feel about that possibility.:wow:

    Agreed, That is exactly what I was thinking. In the eyes of a Layman, Venice as a civilization is ridiculous...

    Personally, I'd love to see an Italian Civ

    i think there are too many 1800s leaders already so i'd prefer cosimo de medici over garibaldi, but then that puts the emphasis on florence over venice. still, florence were an economic and cultural powerhouse

    I'd be fine with that. Just have capital be Venice or Florence or another city state. No need to add confusion by having two Romes. (Or another idea is Rome and Roma.)

    The Aztecs and the Mayans already exist. Mexico is just as unlikely as getting a Norwegian civilization.

    Excited! :banana:

    I'm still predicting we'll be getting Portugal and Brazil.

    Hah, I didn't even see the picture on the site before I wrote that.

    I don't really like the background. Is he in the dungeon or does he stand in front of the castle at night ?

    I don't think they'll do Italy, given that Rome is a staple civ. In Civ 4 they did do Germany and the HRE, but that wasnt exactly a huge hit with us fans, was it?

    With tourism and modern diplomacy being a focus, I can see a modern civ in the game: Brazil, Canada or Australia. In fact, I'd put my money on one of these being in. It's just a great opportunity to get such a civ into the game.
