    The exclusive reveal will be how online speed works, since it is such a cool and major feature.

    People seem to be forgetting the time where they said there would be a big reveal at the end of the stream and it turned out to be the Maracan√£ Stadium (which we had already seen). Maybe it will be a new civ, but I'm not counting on it.

    The big reveal is going to be...


    The return of advisors just as they were in Civ II

    I just hope this event will give us proof that Ed Beach is still alive... :)

    as much as I'd like to see them again, we've already seen some civvi advisors somewhere.

    In the meantime they might have replaced him by a clone or double. Or even a robot.

    We have to carefully watch him and try to find out if it is still him....

    They had a team from Las Vegas fly in to make a hologram of Ed for the event

    Ed Beach will be present, but just as ashes in an urn.

    Or maybe they are just doing what they've always done with Firaxis panels, which is post them online afterwards. But that's just my interpretation of the response. ;)

    What about media outlets like IGN or Gamespot?

    In the past it was just 1 media outlet allowed to record the event. Gamespot, I believe. But the others did attend. It's possible they may livetweet.

    Posting the panel online after the event seems to be the common M.O for Firaxis. They did that with all the previous panels going back to when BE was in development.

    Didn't that take forever like several months later that they posted it?

    Several weeks I think. And even then, the "reveal" wasn't all that impressive. I encourage everyone not to pin high hopes on this event.

    I don't think anyone has suggested yet that the exclusive info could be the suggested computer specs.

    By the way, I'm wondering if there is anybody here living in Seattle and plan to attend the event? So maybe us in the different continent don't have to wait for "several weeks" lol to at least know what's happening.

    I think it would be weird that they advertise the event on facebook and twitter but no one would know what happens there until weeks after..

    Maybe Pax website releases the video or they make a transcript of it or something.

    Nerdist is moderating the event. I'm hoping to glean some information from them.

    Maybe today's reveal will be modding. They did say that they will talk about it soon...

    Saw over on reddit that the China source said that there would be a new civ announced. Could be more than that as well, of course.
