Three wonders: Terracotta army, Petra and Great Mosque of Djenné?

Cut-paste from other thread:
Studying them closer, look at those techs being researched. Iron working will unlock 3 different units/buildings rather then just 2, but I can't make out what the 3rd could be.
It looks like swordman-heroic epic-colossus-iron resource.
Combustion will unlock destroyers and some type of tank that looks different from the current ones, but it's hard to tell if that's a UU replacing the tank or if it's an early tank with "proper" ones being moved further up the tree. That one kinda looks like a very early one, but hard to tell with such a small picture.
Yeah, it really looks like the British WW1-tank: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_I_tank

where do you see Byzantines in the religion screen? Or can you tell by the symbol?

Lisbon as a city state, could suggest that one of the old city states is bumped up to a full civ.
Also saw Antwerp as a city state.

However it could also be that these two are just the new mercantile or religious ones.

Looks like the city-state influence bar has received a graphics overhaul, unless that's for one of the new mechanics.

Well that will rule out both Portugal and Belgium als new civs.

Also, this 'bonus belief available to the Byzantines only' suggests that this is the Byzantine UA?

You didn't really expect Belgium as a new civ when there are only 9 open slots ^^?

  1. Buddhism
  2. Christianity
  3. Update: Confucianism.
  4. Hinduism
  5. Islam
  6. Judaism
  7. Shintoism
  8. Update: Sikhism.
  9. Taoism
  10. Mesoamerican religion?
  11. Update: Zoroastrianism

What are the others?

On the screenshot with the religion screen you can see Dublin as a Celtic city. This would imply Dublin has been removed as a city. You can also just make out the lower half of a symbol next to the city name that doesn't match any of the religion symbols, it looks to me like a lightning bolt.

I had a feeling that that belgium wasn't a new civ it was a part of Netherlands when it was at it full power. When willem was at power and thats the leader that they are going to chose for netherlands I thinx.

So it would be kinda wierd if they add belgium with it .


However I hope that they some day add it and use this in the description:
Many important battles have been fought in you're countries like the battle of waterlo, battles of world war 1, and so on

Its true Belgium is a country where a lot of important battles have been taken place in Europe

I just hoped that the belgium wonder atomium was in the game :(

The cross next to most city names is identical to the Christianity symbol in the religion overview, I guess it makes the city Christian.
Orleans has one of the other religious symbols

Rigged elections seem to be a city state thing, and Brussels is mentioned in that. So I'd say that definitely rules out Belgium as a civ.

Moderator Action: Moved to the new forum.

I won't have time to update the OP tonight this morning, but will attempt to tomorrow. :)
