Civilization: Network Will Be Playable This JuneS

While there's trepidation amongst many gamers as to the potential for "proper" Facebook games, there's one series that was born for the social network platform: Civilization. Which is coming to Facebook, and whose beta will open in five month's time.

Civilization publisher Take Two has told Variety that the game's open beta, which for an online/Facebook game may as well be its release date, will be "sometime in June".

Bosses of the world, you thus have five months to get yourselves ready, and filter/ban anything on the work network that involves "Facebook" and "Civilization".
