In addition, Worthplaying has published a long and detailed hands-on preview of the game. This preview features some interesting information about the different maps, difficulty levels, and customization options for the game.
In the new version the player will have the option of four different game speeds. Players of Civilization IV will be familiar with this concept. Here is an excerpt:
"The Normal speed gives you about 400 turns to use to win the game. Quick gives you less, and the Epic and Marathon settings give you much more. It is easiest to win games on Marathon, but the length is true to its name. A Marathon game can take several play sessions to complete, while your average normal game resolves in around four hours."
