Love them or hate them, we are going to have new achievements. Civilizations : I am fairly certain that there will be 18 related to the new civiliations. Two for each civilization : ("win as ..." and "do something as ...") World Congress : I predict several that invoke the game mechanic (found it, sanction someone, be sactioned, world games, etc) Trade Routes : Probably need to reach some quanity to trigger the achievement, also destroy a trade route, have some number of trade routes destroyed. Tourism : Possibly have to get to some level. Or maybe have archaelogist discover certain things Great Works : Get them all Social Policies : Complete each of the new trees Ideologies : Complete each Tech Trading : Reach some level of tech trading Cultural Pressure : ditto Victory : win via new culture American Civil War : Win as each side, New trade mechanic may be a factor (disrupt Southern trade with Europe), maybe a "gone with the wind" achivement for capturing Atlanta. (I am really wondering what this map will look like for this scenario. I can see individual battle being played in CIV5. I am not sure how the whole campaign would play out. Topic for a seperate thread.) Scramble for Africa : Win as each side, possible trade related achievement, archaeolgy achievement(s) (Maybe a reference to Captain Spalding or a reference to Stanley and Livingstone" Looks like around 50 new achievements.
