My friends and I wanted to play Civilization: Revolution together. They both have Xbox 360s and only I have a computer.

We were wondering if it would be possible for us to play together, without me having to purchase an Xbox?


There is no version of Civilization 5 for the Xbox 360. There is Civilization: Revolution, but it's a completely different game.

Even if there were, it is fairly rare that PC and Xbox 360 players can play multiplayer together. I can think of perhaps a handful of games where this is the case.

So the answer is no, you can't play Civilization 5 between a PC and the Xbox 360.

    @Cyberson, there's no version of Civilization: Revolution for PC. Additionally, I don't believe the console versions support cross platform play (ie, I don't think PS3 players can play with 360 players, and the DS game is pretty significantly different from the other two...) – agent86 Mar 19 '14 at 1:07

    To answer the "general case" question - there is no way to play any current Civilization game on a console and a PC together in some multiplayer fashion. – agent86 Mar 19 '14 at 1:16

Theoretically, you could try loading up Civilization: Revolution on an XBox 360 emulator. As agent86 points out, however, it's not the same as Civilization 5. I'd be flabbergasted if you had access to multiplayer content though.

  • Sorry I had meant Civilization: Revolution, not Civilization 5 – Cyberson Mar 18 '14 at 22:07
  • Well in that case, give the emulator a shot and let us know what happens :) – Imperative Mar 18 '14 at 23:40
