Sid Meier's marketing team has been working overtime. Not only is the charity-driven Humble Bundle the Humble Sid Meier Bundle this week, but Civilization V: Complete Edition is a go for digital download and retail.
The Complete Edition comes with the base game along with the Gods & Kings, Brave New World, and Conquest of the New World Deluxe Scenario expansion packs, as well as all pre-released add-on content:
Mildly confusing but important: If you already bought the Brave New World expansion, you'll get the Conquest of the New World Deluxe Scenario for free on Steam. Going forward, Conquest of the New World Deluxe Scenario will be included as a free bonus with Brave New World.
If you're tired of inscrutable strategy games buried under their own complexities and lack of suitable tutorials (cough, Crusader Kings and Europa Universalis), then it's high time to discover why Sid Meier's Civilization is one of the most beloved, accessible, and fun strategy series of all time.
