Korea to get a Civilization MMO

It'll probably be free-to-play too

2K Games has commissioned the Korean developer XLGames to produce a massively multiplayer version of Sid Meier's Civilization.

Currently titled Civilization Online (unsurprisingly) XLGames has set about developing the game with support and guidance from the series developer Firaxis.

No business model has been confirmed for Civ Online as yet but 2K's previous online ventures in the Far East such as NBA 2K Online and NBA 2K All-Stars are both free-to-play.

This is the final frontier for the Civilization series to explore after hitting consoles and mobiles with Civilization Revolution in 2008 and going social with Civilization World on Facebook in 2011.
