Sid Meier's Civilization IV®: Beyond the Sword is the second expansion pack for Civilization IV - the 2005 PC Game of the Year that has become a worldwide hit. The expansion focuses on the time periods after the invention of gunpowder and delivers 11 unique and challenging scenarios created by the development team at Firaxis as well as esteemed members of the Civ Community. Civ IV: Beyond the Sword also includes ten new civilizations, sixteen new leaders, five new wonders, and a variety of new units that offer even more fun and exciting ways for players to expand their civilization's power as they strive for world domination.
  • Expanded Epic Game: Adds a massive increase of new units, buildings, and technologies to the epic game with a tremendous amount of effort focused on the late game.
  • New Game Scenarios: 11 new scenarios custom-designed by the team at Firaxis and some members of the Civ Fan Community.
  • New Civilizations: 10 new civilizations, such as Portugal, Babylonians, and Netherlands and their associated unique units and buildings.
  • More Civilization Leaders: Sixteen new leaders, both for the new civilizations as well as additional leaders for existing civilizations, including Hammurabi of the Babylonians, Abraham Lincoln of the United States, and Sitting Bull of the Native Americans.
  • Corporations: A new game feature similar to religion allows players to found companies and spread them throughout the world. Each corporation provides benefits in exchange for certain resources.
  • Espionage: Now available earlier in the game, this feature offers players many new ways to spy on opponents, stir citizen unrest and defend government secrets.
  • Events: New random events - such as natural disasters and pleas for help or demands from their citizens - challenge players with obstacles that must be overcome for their civilization to prosper.
  • New Wonders: Five new wonders await discovery, including the Statue of Zeus, Cristo Redentor, the Shwedagon Paya, and the Mausoleum of Maussollos.
  • Expanded Space Victory: Winning the race to Alpha Centauri will now require more strategic planning and tactical decision making.
  • Apostolic Palace: The United Nations is available earlier in the game, providing a way to win a diplomatic victory earlier. In addition, new resolutions expand the available diplomatic options.
  • Advanced Starts: A major fan request, this new feature enables players to 'buy' components of a custom-tailored empire and begin play in the later part of the game, allowing one to experience many of the new features of the expansion in a shorter amount of time.
  • Advanced AI: The greatly-enhanced AI now relies more on smart play and less on handicap bonuses to remain competitive, providing a more consistent challenge throughout the course of the game, both economically and militarily. The ways in which the AI attempt to achieve victory have also been expanded.

This game will ruin your little aspie life. Your plants will wither, your pets will starve, and you'll probably get scurvy, and bed sores. Seriously, this is the wizard's glass, and when you look into it, it'll look into you, and find you wanting.

Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword must be the most complete Civilization to date. In some ways it is superior to its succesor Civilization V.

Advantages of Civ IV BTS:
+AI is much smarter
+AI actually conquers other nations
+Game includes vassal states (capitulate to save yourself)
+Espionage mechanic makes much more sense (accumulate points to view demographics, cities, construction queue etc)
+Larger empires
+More complex mechanics (such as health and individual city happiness)
+Technology trading (can be disabled)


Disadvantages of Civ IV BTW:
-Graphics are worse
-Combat based on "odds" not health. So you can lose a unit with a 95% win chance.
-You have to "call" someone before you can setup a trade.

Some of the worst things in human history began with the best intentions. When I lead a once prosperous country of freedom and efficency into the dark days of another world war, I found that things had to change to match the times. A police state with an iron will was formed, and we rode out the storm with enemies falling at our feet through the battles won, and the diplomatic options utilized. Beyond the Sword lets you bring out the tyrant in you.

Taught me really how fun it is to destroy the environment as well as commit needless genocide to get just a little bit ahead.
10/10 Better than Watch_Dogs

Pros:
+Fun and deep gameplay, lots of viable strategies and playstyles makes the game very accessible.
+The game is pretty easy to mod, and theres a huge, still living mod community.
+Mods are WAY better than Civ V mods, most mods are huge overhauls that add sci-fi elements, fantasy elements, make the game more "realistic", it's just great.
+Good variety of Civs, each with two traits, two uniques and two starting techs.
Cons
-"Native America" is a Civ, which is really dumb, the leader is Sitting Bull, a chieftain of the Hunkpapa Lakota, his unique unit is a Dog Soldier..a soldier class of the Cheyenne and his building is a Totem pole....which is a religious symbol for Alaskan (I forget which) tribes.
-The "health" system seems like an unneeded secondary lock on how big cities can grow.
-The "happiness" system is generally good, but can lead to some annoying moments.
-Traits aren't all that balanced, "financial" is just so good while "protective" is just so bad.
Full Review
Quite possibly one of the best games I've ever played. Games are long and difficult, leaders are very animated and expressive and the soundtrack is utterly fantastic (Netherlands and Greeces theme are such smoothing tracks). The leader variety is slightly greater than Civ V (but Civ V has more civs with more unique abilities), and each leader has two traits, like Abraham Lincoln is Philosophical and Charismatic while Montezuma is Aggressive and Spiritual, for the most part these traits are fairly balanced, but there are a few expeditions of just play bad traits (Protective is infamously underpowered).

Each Civ also has their two "uniques", unique units and unique buildings, unfortunately I don't really see these often being huge game changers with a few expeditions like Englands Redcoats, Ethipoias Omoro Warriors or Sumerians Ziggurats, this is probably cause the games combat is by far the worse aspect of it, units stack meaning most depth and strategy can be replaced with simply rushing enemies with strong melee units and hope to win, hope you built a lot of archers!

Adds a bunch of new Empires (Native American, Ethiopian, Ottoman,etc.) and new Leaders to existing empires (Churchill, Lincoln, Stalin,etc.) Adds new technologies and playable scenarios. Also adds the Espionage system which is poorly made but still interesting. Would reccomend for any avid Civ 4 player.

One of my all time Favorite games - I have countless hours of this game before it came to steam and I have to say that they just plain got it right with this.

If you like it and get a bit bored try the Fall From Heaven 2 mod available at Civfanatics <dotcom>

Civ IV is my favourite version of the Civ series, and BtS is a good expansion pack.

This might literally be the best game ever made (provided you like strategy). It has massive depth, random world generation leaves the replayability nigh infinite, and a wide variety of mods (my favorite is Caveman2Cosmos) mean that you can easily log hundreds of hours here.
