    Just watch the cinematic, very evident Indian angle there with the Sikh soldiers in turbans and the stallion truck, i Just wished they had gone ahead and used the Tiranga flag as well, like they show the star spangled banner.

    This is actually a video game trailer about Civilization:Beyond Earth . Civilization is a strategy game developed by that American Sid Meier. In reality the video has very little resemblance with the game and the preview they have put up. The game looks like the general strategy games in the previews.

    I know that, I own copies of both civ 4 and 5, what I meant to say was that this was probably the first time a major video game franchise has depicted India as a major power in the cinematic trailer.

    Strange-ish flavour text for Indian Civ. The Name for India is Kavithan protectorate:

    Prophet is more of a middle eastern/islamic thing. The capital city is "Mandira" and the special ability:Cities and Outposts acquire new tiles twice as fast

    Others can be seen here:Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Civilization Wiki

    Bc better than the previous Indian bonuses of happiness in proportion to population and the penalty unhappiness with number of cities. Come to think of it, both were penalties since population only influence happiness not food.

    Yeah India was bad in civ 5..:(.
    But anyway New game seems quite buggy, a lot of people say it feels like the game is stll in beta, so would be a good idea to wait for patches/expansions. Also some people have mentioned that the fast expansion of KP is one of the strongest this time. (maybe nerfed in patches I guess).

    I havent even played x-com yet :(

    Well India in AoE 3 was good in multiplayer with Sepoy Rush.(P.S. I was never good in AoE 2 multi but was average in AoE 2).

    As for CiV 5 I have only played France/germany(napoleon and bismarck) in the expansion Brave New World.
