Sid Meier’s Civilization IV®:
Beyond the Sword
is the second expansion pack for
Civilization IV – the 2005 PC Game of the Year that has become a
worldwide hit. The expansion focuses on the time periods after the
invention of gunpowder and delivers 11 unique and challenging
scenarios created by the development team at Firaxis as well as
esteemed members of the Civ Community.

Civ IV: Beyond the Sword also includes ten new civilizations,
sixteen new leaders, five new wonders, and a variety of new units
that offer even more fun and exciting ways for players to expand
their civilization’s power as they strive for world domination.

  • Expanded Epic Game: Adds a massive increase of new units,
    buildings, and technologies to the epic game with a tremendous
    amount of effort focused on the late game.
  • New Game Scenarios: 11 new scenarios custom-designed by the
    team at Firaxis and some members of the Civ Fan Community.
  • New Civilizations: 10 new civilizations, such as Portugal,
    Babylonians, and Netherlands and their associated unique units and
    buildings.
  • More Civilization Leaders: Sixteen new leaders, both for the
    new civilizations as well as additional leaders for existing
    civilizations, including Hammurabi of the Babylonians, Abraham
    Lincoln of the United States, and Sitting Bull of the Native
    Americans.
  • Corporations: A new game feature similar to religion allows
    players to found companies and spread them throughout the world.
    Each corporation provides benefits in exchange for certain
    resources.
  • Espionage: Now available earlier in the game, this feature
    offers players many new ways to spy on opponents, stir citizen
    unrest and defend government secrets.
  • Events: New random events – such as natural disasters and pleas
    for help or demands from their citizens – challenge players with
    obstacles that must be overcome for their civilization to
    prosper.
  • New Wonders: Five new wonders await discovery, including the
    Statue of Zeus, Cristo Redentor, the Shwedagon Paya, and the
    Mausoleum of Maussollos.
  • Expanded Space Victory: Winning the race to Alpha Centauri will
    now require more strategic planning and tactical decision
    making.
  • Apostolic Palace: The United Nations is available earlier in
    the game, providing a way to win a diplomatic victory earlier. In
    addition, new resolutions expand the available diplomatic
    options.
  • Advanced Starts: A major fan request, this new feature enables
    players to ‘buy’ components of a custom-tailored empire and begin
    play in the later part of the game, allowing one to experience many
    of the new features of the expansion in a shorter amount of
    time.
  • Advanced AI: The greatly-enhanced AI now relies more on smart
    play and less on handicap bonuses to remain competitive, providing
    a more consistent challenge throughout the course of the game, both
    economically and militarily. The ways in which the AI attempt to
    achieve victory have also been expanded.
