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".
