2K Games and Firaxis have put out the launch trailer for Civilization V's next expansion Brave New World, though it should be noted that the game doesn't launch until July 9. Nevertheless, it's a great trailer for what's likely to be a great expansion, so why not put it out a little bit early? If you've got a few minutes to listen to James Earl Jones narrate a series of significant events in human history, check this out.
That is James Earl Jones narrating, right? It's not like he's got a common voice or anything, and Firaxis has gone out of its way with these cinematics before. Still, it's weird to think James Earl Jones took time out of his day to narrate a cinematic for a video game. Shouldn't he be, I don't know, commanding the Earth as the voice of god or something?
Civilization V: Brave New World launches on July 9. The game's second expansion, following up Gods & Kings, will add nine new civilizations, trade routes, ideologies and the World Congress -- among other things. If you even remotely enjoy Civ V, Brave New World will be hard to pass up.
