2K Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive, has announced the completion of HistoriCanada: The New World, an innovate new Sid Meier’s Civilization III mod designed to offer students an interactive means to learn Canadian history. Produced by international media firm Bitcasters, the mod will be packaged with copies of Civilization III and donated to 100,000 Canadian high school students so that they may explore and learn about their country's past and even alter outcomes of historical events. Developed over a two year time, the game allows players to take control of one of Canada’s early European or Aboriginal civilizations, making important decisions ranging from planning their settlement and crops, to determining when to wage war or make peace. Additionally, players will be presented with questions about various scenarios and milestones that helped shape Canada's history across 17 civilizations spanning 400 years. “2K is proud to be a part of the development and donation of HistoriCanada: The New World, which will provide students across Canada with access to an unprecedented educational experience,” said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. “In addition to learning about their history through simulation scenarios, students can look at original artwork, watch vignettes and read articles about hundreds of topics thanks to the involvement of The Canadian Encyclopedia and Historica Minutes.”
