Sid Meier's Colonization Recreated Using the Civilization IV Engine Print
Wednesday, 11 June 2008

We have received news that a commercial Colonization clone is in production. This news was made available Wednesday in a press release from 2K Games/Firaxis.

The game will be made available in fall 2008. It will be marketed under the title Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization but will nevertheless be a standalone game. Hopefully this is for marketing purposes and not an indication of any missing features/shortcuts. We wait in anticipation for a sequel to the original Colonization that was released 14 years ago.

Rest assured that our team will continue working on FreeCol no matter how good or bad the remake turns out.

New Website Print
Thursday, 27 September 2007

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website. This site is hopefully both better looking and easier to maintain than our old site. You can now participate in the development of the website, for example by adding more documentation. Read more on How to Contribute.

The design of the old site has almost been untouched since 2002. New content was frequently added, but this is the first time we make larger changes to the appearance. People missing the old site can state their unhappiness using the poll on the Community page. I hope you will eventually enjoy the new site :-)

You can discuss the changes at our forum

SourceForge.net is currently accepting nominations for their annual Community Choice Awards. If you would like to see FreeCol among this year's winners, you should nominate the project now and vote for it later. Naturally, development will continue as usual, whether we win anything or not, but the additional "publicity" might well attract further developers eager to improve the FreeCol experience.
