Sid Meier's Civilization is a turn-based strategy "4X"-type strategy video game created by Sid Meier and Bruce Shelley for MicroProse in 1991. The game's objective is to "Build an empire to stand the test of time": it begins in 4000 BC and the players attempt to expand and develop their empires through the ages from the ancient era until modern and near-future times. It is also known simply as Civilization, or abbreviated to Civ or Civ I. Civilization was originally developed for DOS running on a PC. It has undergone numerous revisions for various platforms (including Windows, Macintosh, Amiga, Atari ST, PlayStation, N-Gage and Super Nintendo) and now exists in several versions. A multiplayer remake, Sid Meier's CivNet was released for the PC in 1995. The N-Gage version was the last game released for the system in North America.
Civilization requires at least a Radeon Xpress 1200 Series or GeForce FX 5200 to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or Civilization won’t run. To summarise, Civilization needs around a 16 year old PC to play at recommended settings.
