I don't know for sure, but I suspect these are historical quotations from the icons of each civilization. The japanese one resembles Kogoro Katsura, I guess...
Great trailer, even without gameplay. "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." Great quote for this game and never was a truer thing said. I can't wait to sink hours in to Civ 5.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Is this a trailer or a lesson on what makes Civilization be a better Civilization? I loved the true epicness of it. How every diferent voice represents a diferent take on how to obtain their goal. This is golden! I have never played Civilization but I am having thoughts about this game!... Then again turned based games is not my thing.
No more turns! No more turns! Finally civ will use hexes instead of squares, that alone would make me play that version :)
I look forward to seeing what it actually looks like. It's easy for a game to look good when all they show is movies of non-gameplay.
I wonder if they will put in the really new-prototype-fantasy techs like plasma sabers,fusinon reactors and nano fibers and such. What do you think?
Well it's a nice trailer, but what about the game? How different can they make it in relation to I,II,III and IV?
the CGI videos keep getting better and better. For some reason I hope this comes out for PC AND Mac!
I must say I am far.. Very far from this type of game. But if this ends up as good as they are saying in that vid!?! I will be getting in to it very easy
@ enterawesome : " That's it. I'm getting a gaming PC. I can't miss out on a new Civ." Or wait for Onlive, and see if that thing will deliver, it might save you a bit. although a gaming pc is not just useful for gaming.
Civ games are funny things...they aren't my favorite genre by any means, but they are, without fail, truly amazing games, and anyone who has ever enjoyed a Civ game will agree...without fail, there will be many an hour of sleep lost this fall.
@ iron_zealot7531 That's not Martin Sheen on the second quote. I'm not sure who it is, but it sure as hell isn't him.
Can't wait. Hope it doesn't have a crippling memory leak problem like the first one at release which rendered it unplayable in late game. =\
