First Civ5 DLC will be available Late 2010


  • First Civ5 DLC will be available Late 2010

    In what appears to be an advertorial from Direct2Drive at the English IGN the first available DLC for Civilization V has been mentioned! "gamers who pre-order Civilization V through D2D will also receive the first Double Civilization and Scenario Pack downloadable content when it is made available post-release, currently scheduled for late 2010 (a $10 value)." For completeness sake: The Babylonian Civilization with Nebuchadnezzar II as leader will ship with this sale as well!

      I posted that in your thread...

      Wish I'd known about the promo code... I just broke down last night and bought it.

      WTF is this? Is there a place I can buy the complete game? What's with this "DLC" nonsense? This content is already made. They are keeping it out of the release so they can package it in a $10 expansion! Oh, and they are keeping the Babylonians out but I can buy a "Deluxe Edition" for $10 more? Are they seriously trying to rip me off?

      So is this going to end up being a $70 game? $80?

      I was going to pre-order this right now. Now I'm going to wait and see what the deal is.

      Enough with the shenanigans!

      What're the chances this is an inside joke for Apolyton?
