    • Next War: A futuristic sci-fi scenario with clone armies and more.
    • Charlemagne: Conquer Europe during the renaissance.
    • Crossroads of the World: A late medieval age scenario where you explore and conquer the crossroads of the world in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
    • Broken Star: Civil war has struck the Soviet Union. Unite the russian bear!
    • Superrobo: Be the first civilization to find and collect the parts to a giant mysterious robot that crashed on Earth.
    • WWII Road to War: Atlast! Play as the Allies or Axis in both the Pacific and Europe.

    Perfect, I am really looking forward to getting this stuff...!

    Seems to be the first and really official expansion for Civ4, especially with FFH (This is still THE add-on for Civ4...).

    I am already counting down the days!

    You might be facing some bad luck. The article I quoted was the printed edition of PCGamer...in Sweden. More exactly No 125 (5) May 2007.

    What might the bold ones mean? Hmmm...

    Final Frontier? World war III? Nuclear war between America and the Islamic world?

    Great to have a Byzantine scenario (probably, Crossroads of the world). Might have something to do with the Turks also!
    But does this mean we'll be seeing Adolf Hitler! The road to war?!? Adolf's insanity was the road!

    Anyway, I'm really pleased my favourite mod, Rhye's and fall of Civilization is in. Again, congrats to Kael and Rhye for having their mods in there!

    I've updated the news post with the description of each scenario as translated by OctopusOverload in this post.

    Again, thanks OctopusOverload!

    Does anyone else see a problem to Charlemagne conquering Europe in the renaissance?
