The fourth installment in the Civilization series. The aim of the game is to lead a civilisation from 4,000 BC, in an attempt to grow it to world domination. Among the new features compared to previous instalments is the introduction of the concept of great characters from history (artists, merchants, prophets, engineers and scientists), who offer extra benefits. It also incorporates for the first time in the series the possibility of founding and expanding religions and adopting an official religion. It also replaces the choice of forms of government with the adoption of political principles. The UN takes centre stage and artificial intelligence is far superior to previous versions.
Project: 2. Social and economic impact of technological revolutions in Europe., 5. Power and powers in the history of Europe: oligarchies, political participation and democracy.
