Update: 7/2/2014 6am: Civilization Revolution 2 is now available in the App Store


2K Games has announced a brand new iteration on its popular world domination, 4X franchise with Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 for iOS and Android. Despite its name, Revolution 2 is actually the first title in the franchise designed specifically for mobile from the ground up. The current Civilization Revolution title available on iOS is actually a port of the 2008 console title and never made it over to Android devices.

The game will combine the core tactical elements of the series with intuitive controls and a friendly user interface – designed specifically for mobile gamers on touch-pad devices. Civilization fans will also recognize the 16 historical leaders found in the first game, including Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Napoleon, alongside leaders such as Churchill and Kennedy, who are making their appearance in the series for the first time

Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 will be available on July 2 for iPhone and iPad and arrive shortly after that for Android users.
