2K Games has announced that Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution will be released across Europe on June 6.

The game is in development internally at 2K's award-winning Firaxis development studio and has been built from the ground up for console and handheld gamers. Consequently the game promises fast-paced, pick-up-and-play action based on the idea of global domination.

The game will also sport some new graphical touches and a streamlined interface to make the game more accessible to gamers new to the Civilization series.
