Civilization Coming to Facebook

Facebook is about to get a little more civilized, as video-game developer Sid Meier is developing Civilization Network, to debut on the social-networking site sometime during 2010, CNET reported.

Players will be able to face each other in battle, share technological innovations, form a government, win elections, manage growing cities and more in a life-like world, according to CNET.

The game will be free-of-charge, and Meier wrote on the Civilization Facebook page that he is looking for beta-testers.

He told CNET he has been “looking at ways of expanding the Civilization game-play experience to include solo, competitive and cooperative play to take advantage of the uniqueness of social networks.” David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
