Civ IV to get Colonization expansion

Will work as a standalone game.

A new expansion for highly addictive turn-based strategy title Civilization IV is on the way.

It's titled Civilization IV: Colonization and it's based, funnily enough, on 1994's Sid Meier's Colonization. You can expect a new interface, enhanced options for diplomacy, a new modding toolset and, should think so too, better graphics.

Playing as one of four European nations, you're on a mission to dominate the New World. This will involve battling the locals in various regions as well as fighting fellow colonialists.

Civilization IV: Colonization will work as a standalone game, meaning you won't need to own a copy of Civ IV to run it. The game is out this autumn.
