The next expansion for the addictive strategy game Civilization 5 arrives in just a few weeks, and to get you hyped, Firaxis has released a launch trailer for Brave New World.

Available on July 9, Brave New World will add a host of new features to the already densely packed game. There will be new civilizations, wonders, Great Works, the addition of trade routes, policies and ideologies and more. Even small touches like new archaeological digs based on your past battles go a long way in adding depth to Civ 5.

The expansion is due to arrive on both PC and Mac at the same time, and you can believe we'll be jumping on the expansion the minute it goes live. Check out the trailer above, and let us know if you'll be trying your hand at running the world.
