Then there’s Civilization V: Brave New World, the second expansion for the popular turn-based strategy game. The official page goes into great detail about the new features, but here’s the short version. Civilization V: Brave New World features new civilizations, units, buildings, wonders, scenarios, policies, ideologies and a new path to victory by spreading culture. A World Congress and International Trade Routes have also been added. The expansion will be available on Tuesday in the United States and on July 12th internationally.
Last but not least, NCAA Football 14 is being released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Here’s what EA has to say about it:

NCAA Football 14 gets you closer to the action than ever before and tells the story of every game. Experience the drama of college football from a whole-new perspective.
