Sid Meier’s Civilization V is the best “4X” (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) game out there, and it can be yours for 67 percent off the regular price of thirty bucks right now in this exclusive to Cult of Mac offer from publisher Aspyr.
Civ 5, as it’s colloquially known, is the distillation of all that is good about the $x genre, which is why the game received universal acclaim and a score of 90/100 on review aggregator site Metacritic.
Aspyr wanted to find a way to acknowledge the support of Cult of Mac readers.
“It’s an exclusive deal for Cult of Mac readers on one of our most beloved titles,” said Aspyr’s Michael Blair. “This is a big ‘thank you’ to the Cult of Mac readers and to Cult of Mac for covering Mac gaming!”
You’ll play as one of the great leaders of our time, like Napoleon Bonaparte, Ghandi, or Genghis Khan. The base game has 18 playable civilizations, while downloadable expansion packs bring the total up to 43.
The game proceeds like an incredibly detailed historical sim with plenty of battles, cultural decisions, and crazy-deep micromanagement possible. You can play it on the internet, across your home network, or just as a single player campaign. Games can take from hours to weeks if you do it right, and the deep zen of nurturing a civilization from barbarism to space travel is simply divine.
This is a great way to save a wallet-full of cash on one of the best gaming titles in existence. Give it a shot today with this exclusive link.
