    Yeah I would be surprised if we get a lot of new information.
    Maybe a couple of new screen shots.
    I'm with the people who say being drip fed over several months is more exciting anyway.

    Honestly I'd be happy with just a mere vague screenshot or two.

    Game won't be out for a while and as long as they keep slowly dripping out drops of information to barely keep our curiosity alive then that'll be fine till the next big announcement

    They'll probably just "reveal" assyria, portugal, and zulu (the civs almost everyone is 100% certain will be in the game) and then not tell us about any actual new civs for months.

    I hope they announce that they will finally be delivering on their promise of Pitboss (promised for release at launch of the base game two and a half years ago)

    Who am I kidding, that will never happen. :(

    Looking forward to your well of souls updates Arioch! Perhaps no surprise Theodora leak this time though [Maybe surprise Papal pose though...?]

    I'm expecting PAX to be the 'proper' announcement. To me, what we've had seems like a hype-building preview so we're all paying attention to PAX

    Honestly I hope they don't reveal too much, we're already down to 2 wonders, though something surprising would be nice

    International Trade? One wonder is probably the Panama Canal, they already have the art for it.

    I always assumed the reason the Panama Canal and Three Gorges Dam were not in the game is that they could not work out how to show them on the map, but I do hope they are the last two

    I think, like Everest and such they just decided that they weren't really needed at the time. Who knows though.

    Fingers crossed for corporations! They make a lot more sense now, with the introduction of international trade routes...!

    I'd love to have corporations in the game, history-wise they were, at least for Western countries, of immense importance and ruled large swaths of land (India under the rule of the WIC springs to mind).

    I don't think any new features are going to be announced. The new culture victory + tourism + World Congress + Great Works + Archeology are a big amount of features, more than enough for one expansion. I think they've laid it out for us. Now it's just a matter of civs and fleshing out the details.

    I want more screenshots that we can spend endless hours debating and extrapolating information from. :)

    Yeah, it's half the fun.
    No pixel will be left unturned! :D

    I agree it is fun to pick apart screenshots. You did an excellent job last time.

    As far as what I'd to hear info about some new units would be great. Along with a better run down of the new features. Hopefully they announce the Zulu.

    Given that PAX is so close to the announcement, I'm not expecting much new information, just a restatement of what was said in all the interviews consolidated into one place.
