Is this supposed to be Brave New World as in the Shakespeare context or the Aldous Huxley novel context? Both are pretty different.

While I am a big fan of Civ 5, I will wait for this expansion to go on sale just like G&K. There aren't really any new mechanics that drastically change gameplay for me since I always opt for world domination with UN disabled biggrin.gif

post #35 of 37
ahh Civilization smile.gif ... been playing this series since version 1 hehe biggrin.gif

so far I completed all scenarios in Civ5:GK on Prince level except for Rome scenario (got my bottom beaten badly) ... I wish my skills allowed me to play this game above Prince without 95% chance of getting trashed LOL smile.gif
oh, I loved the Steampunk scenario, was one of most interesting ones! thumb.gif

Looking forward to Brave new world .. but I will most likely wait until it gets on some sale, maybe during Christmas wink.gif

not sure if you guys play lots of mods, but I played a few fantastic ones in Civ4, especially the Final Frontier (sci fi) was very impressive, I wish there was such a game mod for Civ5, would gladly play it smile.gif

The addition of international trade routs (and the ability to block them) looks like it's going to make naval warfare far more important, one of the new reformation beliefs (piety finisher) for war mongerers is going to allow you to buy post-Industrial land units with faith, order and autocracy tenets give enormous bonuses for domination, and it's safe to assume the world congress is going to be a thing regardless of whether diplo victory is allowed.

The amount of things changed in this expansion is ridiculous, now I'll just be left waiting for melee units to be fixed in the balance patch.

There are a lot of good things in this expansion, I don't know if I'm going to have time for it though...
