    So... is that edition still going to require steam? And does it include the extra civ that's in the deluxe edition?

      All versions are supposed to require steam. And since there's no mentions of extra civs in this version..=/

        Did anyone notice the figurines of units in that pic? A robot of some kind? A Giant Death Robot?

            On the official 2K boards, 2KElizabeth confirmed that the Babylon civ will not be included in the SE.

              Kind of figured it would... but one can hope.

              ...wow. Now the question is, will it be possible to just mod the Babylonians into the game? (and potentially use them in MP)

                  Is Babylon included elsewhere?

                      Hmm, ok.

                      So there is a deluxe edition and a special edition? What's the difference?

                        Boo for no Babylon.

                        Boo for Star Wars rip off AT-TE. Walkers make for terrible weapons platforms.

                        Yay for artbook.

                        Boo for $100.

                          The "deluxe edition" is a Steam-only download; for $10 extra, you get Babylon and three extra maps.

                          It is not yet been made clear whether or not Babylon will be made available for purchase separately, or if it will only come with the "deluxe edition".


                          The "special edition" is the hard copy disc and accroutements deliniated above.






                          Frankly, these decisions regarding the various editions and the recent mass layoffs have raised more than a few red flags.
