I'm still not quite sure what I just watched.

Civilization Online was first announced a couple of years ago, but this is the first actual look we've got at the game. And it's...well, it doesn't look very Civilization, does it?

The fact it's an MMO explains most of this away, especially the combat, but watch closely enough and you'll see everything from RTS elements to city-building.

While it's weird to watch clips like this and somehow equate it to the slow, God's-eye Civilization series, the game on show - regardless of title or tie-ins - still looks interesting! Developed in Korea, whether it ever gets a Western release is anyone's guess.
