Click on the links I gave in post number 7 and all shall be revealed. Well, at least his name
I still prefer Paul the Octopus
i still think they'll be patched in because a few wonders doesn't really seem like much of a dlc
I think/hope it'll be both, just like the (idiotic) natural wonders that came with the "Conquest of the New World"-scenario.
They features in their own scenario and they were patched in the vanilla game.
So, maybe there will be a scenario featuring the Seven Wonders of the World (which now complete with these three added wonders), maybe some interesting scenario-specific Civs (like Assyria, Caria, Lycia, Lydia, Phrygia, Ionia, Rhodos, maybe some Greek City states like Athens, Corinth, Sparta, etc.) and a scenario-specific tech-tree.
(Like other scenario's often have specific civs and/or their own tech-tree)
And the wopnders will also be patched in to the vanilla game under already existing techs as a free addition.
Especially as the audio-files and XML are in the normal assets and not in a specific DLC-folder, like DLC-assets are, makes me think along those lines.
So lemme get this straight? The Civ and the scenario will be separate DLC's? 5.00$ better get me a civ AND a scenario or I'm out.
No, nothing is known yet. It are all assumptions.
If there will be a Korea-DLC it'll probably (I think) have a Korea-centered scenario with it, maybe something like the Imjin War (which featured both Hwacha's and Turtle boats, the assumed UU's for Korea).
And there might be the separate scenario about the world wonders, although nothing is certain about that. Might be a scenario as a free DLC, maybe not, maybe not even a scenario and the wonders will just be patched in.
But nobody knows what it'll be like and even if there's some truth to all I'm saying.
It still are strong speculations and nothing more than that, speculations.
Well... yay to spending 5.00$ to build the Temple of Artemis in my games now... but it sounds pretty lame to sell scenarios separately like that unless they are REALLY comprehensive. Sounds like expansion material. At the same time, how can anyone expect them to patch all that in for free after we just got a gargantuan patch?
So yeah, I'll take a free scenario... but let's not be naive. Maybe scenarios featuring real world maps will be enticing enough for those who don't buy map packs, but I will definitely pass on that. Just stick to DLC civs and be consistent.
Maybe it'll be a free scenario for all the suckers rolleyes who bought the Cradle of Civilization maps. To soothe their wounds
Just kidding of course
But, that said, the Cradle of Civilizations Mesopotamia-map would be great for such a scenario.
There is a spy in 2K/Firaxis base. And he's a friend to that german guy. Or that german guy is a high level employe at 2K/Firaxis.
You bet me to it
Looking like the next DLC is a large one, wonders, scenarios, civilizations (Hittites, Sumer)
the civs are probably scenario specific (ala normandy/the pacific island civs)
Ah, too late, just wanted to post that!
It's very interesting that it's scenaro 6. Maybe scenario 5 is the one that comes with the Korea-DLC?
Only for in the scenario, probably not useable in the normal game.
I imagine there would be a rather large interweb riot if Hittites and Sumer were only playable in the scenario
It doesn't have to mean they'll not come as a seperate civ later on, but like somebody said, just like the 1066-scenario, it'll probably be scenario-specific in this case.
Although I must say it would be really, really nice if it'd be something like the Spain-Inca-pack.
Two civs, some wonders and a good scenario.
That's what my vote is on
Didn't the Polynesian scenario also have victory conditions for each civ you win as. Unless there is full art for each of them, I don't think there will be a riot for failure to include them as regular Civs. That being said, it's possible one or the other will be.
Interestingly enough, I had been considering trying to make a Mesopotamia scenario (since Babylon never had one). I guess I no longer have to.
I really hope it's a two civ DLC pack like the Spain and Inca pack.
I wonder what the Hittites and Sumerian UU and UB might be, the Hittites will probanly get an improved chariot like in Civ III.
Sumer yeah because it was the first, but I really don't think either have precedent to be in the game full time. If they go ancient world, I'd prefer we get a bunch more, Assyrian, Phoenician, etc. But they shouldn't be civs. Then again I don't know if I am buying a scenario separately.
I can say hitties & sumerians would be.. nice, for a change, however I can't really see them getting appearing in the normal game, unfortunately . Too close to Babylon.
OR this could serve as the scenario for Babylon. I mean, it's the only DLC civ with no scenario attached to it, right? For all we know they could just use Babylon for the 'Sumerian Empire' (Assyro-Babylonians)
The thing that now finally makes sense, however, is the buff most ancient wonders recieved - to serve as powerful bonuses in the upcoming scenario.
