Yes, another big PC game has made the leap to Facebook! Celebrated game designer Sid Meier announced Civilization Network, a Facebook edition of the game integrating the site's social networking features into its strategy gameplay, launching some time next year.

"Ever since we finished Civilization Revolution last year, I’ve been looking at ways of expanding the Civ gameplay experience to include solo, competitive and cooperative play to take advantage of the uniqueness of social networks," says Meier.

In Civilization Network, players can join to create and expand a civilization, coordinate strategies for battles, share technology to jump ahead of rivals, lobby friends to form governments and win elections, spy on enemies, and work together to great Wonders of the World.

Firaxis plans to offer a closed beta and will reveal details for signing up soon. In the meantime, you can follow updates on the project on Civilization Network's Facebook page.
