"Publisher 2K Games will launch a new expansion for the strategy game Civilization V later this spring.
Civilization V: Gods and Kings adds several fresh features, including nine more civilizations, new technologies and units, and the addition of Religion, where players can create their own religion and use prophets to spread it across the world.
Lead designer Ed Beach says developers Firaxis want Gods & Kings to "really challenge people and change the way they play."
"It's not just adding in some units ... we really went all out to give a whole new experience to the players," says Beach.
The expansion also features enhanced combat -- notably tweaks to naval warfare -- enhanced diplomacy, including the addition of espionage, and new game scenarios featuring the medieval period and the fall of Rome."
