"Civilization Revolution has a new release date in the U.S. and Canada. All three versions of the game (Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, and Nintendo DS) will ship on July 7th and begin to appear in stores on July 8th. In Europe, the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 versions of Civilization Revolution will still appear in stores on June 6th.
For players in the U.S. and Canada, we are going to take this extra time to make your launch of Civilization Revolution even more awesome than initially planned. We have a lot of things up our sleeve to tide you over: We are going to set up some extensive multiplayer tournaments for US and Canadian players. These tournaments will run off the Civilization multiplayer demo, so everyone can enjoy them. Perks for the winners of these contests are still being worked out, but those who are victorious can expect to get some limited edition Civilization Revolution swag, cash prizes, and a lucky few will face off against the teams at 2K and Firaxis.
In addition, we are setting up gift-with-purchase programs with some retailers in the U.S. and Canada to thank you for your patience and understanding."
