The Civilization Facebook game is now in open beta. This update was posted on the official Facebook page of the game just now:
Hello CivWorld fans! We’re excited to let you know that as of today, Sid Meier’s Civilization World has graduated to Open Beta! The game is now open for anybody to play, no invites necessary. So head on over to the app page to get started right now!
But don’t get too excited, the servers seem to be experiencing some kind of difficulties. I’ve been trying to log in but the servers aren’t responding. I guess a lot of people are trying to get on right now. We are at Digitally Downloaded are excited about the game and can’t wait to get our hands on it.
