Aspyr Releases Civ 5 Gold Edition, Huge Sale On All Other Civilization Titles




Maybe you’ve never played what is, inarguably, the best series of empire-building games ever created, and want to see what all the fuss is about. Or maybe you’ve been meaning to try that Vikings expansion pack. If any of the above fit, now is the time: Aspyr has cut the prices of all their Civilization titles by half to coincide with the release of the Civilization V: Gold Edition.

This means everything, from Civilization III ($5) through Civ V ($20), and everything in between, is on sale. Highly recommended: Civilization IV, the best of the series (arguably this time), is $10 at the Mac App Store, or $7 directly from Aspyr’s GameAgent site. Most of the other titles, like Civ 3, can only be found at GameAgent.

For $50, the Civilization V: Gold Edition includes all the expansion packs ever created for Civ 5, and then some (it’s only available from the GameAgent site or Steam):

Civilization V (updated base game)
Civilization V: Gods and Kings
Civilization Pack: Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar III)
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Polynesia
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark – The Vikings
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Korea
Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca
Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario Pack
Cradle of Civilization – Mediterranean map
Cradle of Civilization – Asia map
Cradle of Civilization – Americas map
Cradle of Civilization – Americas map
Cradle of Civilizatin – Mesepotamia map
Explorer’s Map Pack

Be warned though — when we reviewed Civ 5, we found the system requirements prett demanding; we strongly recommend at least a Core i5 processor, or a beefy Core 2 Duo machine.
