FreeCiv Multiplayer Strategy Game

English

FreeCiv multiplayer strategy game, is a free clone of the turn based strategy game Civilization.

In this game each player becomes leader of a civilisation, fighting to obtain the ultimate goal: the extinction of all other civilisations.

Players take the role of a tribe leader in 4000 BC and have to guide their people through the centuries.

Over time, new technologies are discovered, which allow the construction of new city buildings and the deployment of new units.

Players can wage war on one another or form diplomatic relationships.

The game finishes when one civilization has eradicated all others, accomplished the goal of space colonization, or at a certain deadline.

FreeCiv multiplayer strategy game.

If more than one civilization remains at the deadline, the player with the highest score wins.

Points are awarded for the size of a civilization, its wealth, and cultural and scientific advances.

Freeciv was created as a multiplayer version of Civilization with players moving simultaneously.

Rules and elements of Civilization II, and features required for single-player use, such as AI players, were added later. It is still a stated goal to let Freeciv’s game engine be 100% compatible with Civilization I and II, but only as an option.

Freeciv is much more than a game: In Freeciv the game players can decide what the rules will be!

This means that unlike nearly every other computer game, Freeciv can be a different game each time you play.
