The game commences in prehistory and your mission is to lead your tribe from the Stone Age to the Space Age. It works on Windows, Linux, macOS, and FreeBSD, among others.

Today, their staff released a new version of FreeCiv. Here is the official announcement from FreeCiv's staff about FreeCiv 3.0.5:
