Anno 1404, the 4th part of the well known real-time strategy builder series, is currently available for free via Ubisoft Connect. This offer runs until December 14, and the game can still be played afterwards. If you don’t own it, get it now, it is well worth it!
The charity drive TheCivGive2021 has reached a first milestone: More than $10 000 dollar have been donated. This goes together with the recent announcements of the last 3 streamers participating in the final FFA, TheGameMechanic, SassyGamerLady and the well known PotatoMcWhiskey.
TurnBasedLovers have published their list of the 10 best 4X strategy games out there. To no surprise, this list contains Civ6! The whole article contains a lot of classics, obviously, like Alpha Centauri, Masters of Magic or Master of Orion II, but also Civ4: Colonization.
“It should come as little surprise that the granddaddy of every other game on this list would come out on top, especially with how well-designed the franchise’s most recent incarnation has turned out. Civilization is one of the few franchises that improves with each new entry without backsliding. Civ 6 has proven that the team at Firaxis can pinpoint what makes their games fun and keep those elements while still experimenting and pushing the genre forward.”
Our user blake00 is continuing his video series about the classic games in the Civ series. This time he has a look at FreeCol, a free, open-source version of Colonization. He shows how the game plays, has a looks at mods, the map editor and the late game as well.
So feeling like an old-school free game? Have a look!
