    With the recent strong buff added to many wonders, I'm interested to see what these new ones will do. Statue of Zeus has, in the past, generated free units or increased enemy war weariness. Temple of Artemis gave out a free temple in every city...that would be great.

    Seems logical to me not to use civs from previous, optional DLCs in wholly seperate DLCs.

    .. but still seems illogical to me to NOT finally update the Babylob DLC with this new, related-able scenario.

    I agree for the most part, but all 7 original wonders should really be in the game--after all, they're what inspired that Civ concept to begin with. Imagine if there wasn't a Pyramids.

    While I agree, that's something that gets filed under a "nice to do." If they can sell the scenario otherwise, they might not bother.

    Then again, why not have two versions? One with Babylon, one without.

    Realistically, neither Sumeria nor the Hittites should be in a 7 Wonders of the World scenario.

    I'm against all DLC. Especially ones that you can download for free from cfc's good and honest modding community that isn't out to steal all of your money.

    I think you are thinking of Civ IV, which with the expansion packs eventually had all the 7 Wonders of the World.

    Civ V so far only has the Pyramids, Hanging Gardens, Lighthouse and Colossus.

    The other three look like they're going to be added in this DLC.

    Maybe it will be like the polynesia dlc, with just the Hittites and babylon as sumeria in the scenario.

    You would think Firaxis would have announced something by now. Every day I am more convinced that this is a dud. Lets not get our hopes up for what may turn out to be nothing. The only thing we have going for this new dlc is the 30 new achievements on steam.

    False.

    We also have those speech files. (first page)

    Also, who would pay a Voice Actor to record something, sneakly include it in a patch and then just forget about it?

    Good point. But remember that they already hired the games narrator. Maybe he is on some sort of contract that he comes in whenever they need him.
    Good point though.
