What's on tap for fans of the series? How about cooperative gameplay.

Probably the most interesting changes are the AI improvements which will likely make you grit your teeth a little harder as you're dealing with that jerk Montezuma. Other changes address some unit and city management issues and fix some problems with game's UI. The full list of changes are as follows:

Aspyr Media have announced that it will be publishing the Macintosh version of Civilization V. The PC version was released this past September with three player co-op support, while the OSX version is being slated for November 23rd - just in time for Thanksgiving in the US.

Some of my fondest memories in gaming harken back to sleepless nights with my best friend growing up, playing hot seat co-op Civilization 2. Overnight we'd transform our empire into a vast and conquering civilization in 30 minute shifts.
