Civilization V allows Civ IV map imports

Put your map making tools away!

Civilization V will allow players to import old maps from Civlization IV for those that just can't let go of the past.

The in-game mod and editing tools will allow turn-based strategists to create their very own battlefields but Firaxis anticipated a nostalgic audience:

"You can import Civ 4 maps into the world builder and convert them into Civ 5 maps, including all the units and cities and stuff on it," said lead designer Jon Shafer.

We brought you a batch of Civilization V screenshots fresh from the oven on Friday along with a trailer a couple of days ago.

Civilization V will be available in the US on September 21 and everywhere else on September 24.
