Lots of gamers may have known Civilization Online by Civilization series, the single player games are purely turn-based, while the online version is a MMORPG, hence there will be great differences between them. In Civilization Online, players can be challenged by more uncertain elements, such as deciding as a whole to build a city or start a war. Players can also explore a vast world along with others.
In the single player games, players look at the world with a god's vision. Here, each players has a different role and tasks to fulfil. Cooperation between players and fighting with other civilizations is very new to the series. You are going to be the one to change the world.
According to the developers, Egypt is the most popular civilization in the game, perhaps players are attracted to the design of the Egyptian guards and king. Even if the population is the biggest, Egypt never got the first position in any server. This might be due to players in the Egypt civilization tend to be more focused on building than warring.
In Civilization Online Closed Beta 1, the only option to win is to be victorious in war. In Closed Beta 2, the team has added new winning options, includes building a pyramid! And more winning options will be added, such as through technology research, like firing a rocket etc. So that players who are not into war will be able to win as well.
