Civilization V Optimized for Ultrabooks, and Touch. Coming Soon (Video)

Posted on 17 September 2012 by

Congratulations to Firaxis Games who are about to release a touch-enabled version of Civ V. I got a few fingers on at IDF2012 and put together a video demo for you.

Civ 5 Ultrabook

This Ivy-Bridge optimised version will be available to everyone as an update in Steam in Q4 and it works well. Firaxis have worked around the issue of hover/tooltips b implementing scrolling using a two-finger gesture. It’s not natural at first but to be able to get the tooltips easily is welcome.

Performance seemed smooth on the demonstration I was given and you can see that in the video below along with the other touch gestures that have been enabled.

I have 4 codes available for this software so if you’re interested in picking one up, follow our Facebook page where I’ll announce how you can get this, and some other cool software, next week.
