It’s been a long time coming, but the day is finally here: Civilization World is now in open beta.

The much anticipated Facebook game has been in development since 2009, and we managed to get our hands on it during the closed beta and came away rather impressed in our first-look preview.

CivWorld is now open to all players, so you can see what the fuss is all about for yourself right here. But stay tuned: Gamezebo has been playing the game for the past week and will be posting our full review soon.
