New Civ V DLC coming on December 16th

Civilization V fans (and it's hard not to be) with $7.50 to spare on December 16th will be able to purchase the Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca from their favorite digital distribution outlet.  The pack includes a new scenario and two new civilizations.

The scenario has you trying to find a new trade route between Europe and China in 1942 as the Brits, French, or Spanish.  I'm guessing that somewhere in your journey you discover some place that Leif Erickson already has already been but that's a bit of a spoiler.

The two new civilizations include Spain (lead by Isabella) and the Incans (lead by Pachacuti [bless you]).  It seems like a pretty solid value and it might make for a good stocking stuff for the Civilization V fan in your life.


Scenario Description:
The year is 1492. To the courts of England, France, and Spain come intrepid explorers, anxious to voyage across the Atlantic in search of a western route to China and the Indies. Will they find a new trade route and uncover untold riches from the Asian shores? Or will they perhaps run aground on undiscovered lands along their way? Will native populations be receptive to the knowledge and trade prospects presented to them, or will they fight against the invaders of their homeland? What riches, fame, and opportunities await those who brave the unknown waters? What path will you choose? Who will prevail in the struggle for supremacy over this New World?

Spain – Isabella
Isabella I was the Queen of Castile and Leon for 30 years, and with her husband Ferdinand, laid the groundwork for the consolidation of Spain. For her role in the Spanish unification, patronage of Columbus' voyages to America, and ending of the Reconquista (Recapturing) of the Iberian Peninsula, Isabella is regarded as one of the most beloved and important monarchs in the Spanish crown.

Inca – Pachacuti
Pachacuti was the ninth ruler of the Kingdom of Cusco, who during his reign expanded the tiny kingdom into an expansive empire - Tawantinsuyu. Pachacuti's Incan Empire stretched from modern-day Chile to Ecuador, including most of Peru, Bolivia, and northern Argentina, and laid the foundation for an even larger Incan Empire to come.

The Sid Meier’s Civilization® V Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca will be available for download on Thursday, December 16 at an MSRP of $7.49. Sid Meier’s Civilization V is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available now for PC and Mac. For more information, please visit www.civilization5.com.
