    my initial thought was Rome, but it does occur to me that it's probably not as close to done as, say, the Aztecs (which we've seen, albeit very blurrily, in-game? though I guess that could mean anything.) Rome's been "leaked" but the only real look we've got is that not-really-animated shot of Trajan. Of course, that could have been filmed anytime, and I know very little about the timeline of these things, but i'm leaning towards Aztecs or India, both of which have been confirmed through dev interviews.

    i do think we're more likely to get more info on mechanics (religion, diplomacy) before we get looks at civs that are likely to feature those mechanics, which could be any, so who knows.

    It would not be Civilization without Mesopotamia. Sumeria led by Hammurabi or Babylon led by Nebuchadnezzar. The Hanging Gardens are a Wonder so that makes Babylon a high probability. And Since Egypt is covered, it only makes sense to include some of their ancient rivals. The Hittites, Assyrians, Sumerians, Babylonians, Persians, Carthage, Greece, and Rome fall into that catagory.

    Spain, Congo or Arabia could be tied to First Look Religion
    Rome or Greece could be tied to First Look Civics
    Germany could be tied to First Look City-States
    Congo could be tied to First Look Diplomacy
    Greece or Arabia could also be tied to First Look Trade


    Just some ideas on which game mechanics some civilization reveals could be tied to.

    I'd defiantly say that Greece under Pericles would have some sort of connection to city-states.

    I suspect India or Spain, since those two were previewed by the German magazine and we haven't seen them yet. I hope it's Germany, though.

    I suspected India, then I felt like that civ is just too notorious to get an early reveal.

    So now I think Rome. I always assume Rome is one of those civs that is developed quickly for Firaxis because being the major world power for so long in that era of time, it could be useful as a balancing yard stick for other civs.

    That's my speculation.

    I agree Germany would be interesting, primarily because Barbarrossa is very different from any other leader choice that Germany has had for previous Civ games.

    Gotta be Germany - they've leaked so much about them already, I feel like that HAS to be the next civ to be revealed.

    If we get a religion peak then Spain will follow, otherwise Rome would be most likely next up.

    Except none of the first look mechanic videos have said anything other than "unstacked cities blah blah blah agendas blah blah blah meaningful choices blah blah blah." :(

    Trajan died on the 9th of August, 117 AD. Would be the 1899th anniversary of his death. :p

    That's in August...so I voted France. :)

    Not to be a party pooper, but do we really need one of these every week?

    That's why we need more. We've known about unstacked cities and agendas for a while, but everyone (Firaxis devs, mostly) has been keeping quiet on things like religion because the reveal by 2k (marketing) was well in the future. Even if the videos vaguely discuss religion and some late game systems, we can then get details from Firaxis or maybe press if they do another preview.

    There are 13 weeks left before launch... and 13 civs left to discover, I´d say one a week starting with Rome (no more "the art of civ + meet the dev team" type thing on the same week).

    As mentioned in some coments, and according to what Ed Beach said, they will soon talk about religion, and Christopher´s Tin soundtrack might be unveiled not too long from now either

    Most importantly, I have a feeling that a new gameplay video will be released soon as well (I´d say within the next 2 weeks), followed by dev comentaries on that same video.

    In the art video released last week, they were indeed looking at a gameplay video with Greg Miller and showed parts of that video several times. Apparently, it featured the exact same setup that youtubers got to play on back in May, "the first 60 turns"... something tells me it´s coming our way now.

    Well, either that... or I should stop speculating and get a life, but that´s what we´re here for right?

    I believe the Rome leak wasn't intentional - it was dark screen after all and editors could easily miss that. Just like the leader board bingo, or the zoom-able Aztec city name.
    It's very probable that they misunderstood the power of CSI-like intelligence here.
    So far I think the deliberate teaser is only France's chateau.. so I'm guessing France
    I want to see French players' reaction too when/if de'Medici is officially confirmed :mischief:
