New Civilization V DLC Packs This Week

2K Games announces a pair of DLC packs for Sid Meier's Civilization V to be released for the turn-based strategy expansion on Thursday through {steam) and "select digital partners." The two packs are the Korea Civilization and Scenario Pack and the Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario Pack, which will be offered for $4.99 USD each, or for $7.49 USD as a bundle. Details on the packs follow.

Civilization and Scenario Pack: Korea

The Korea Civilization and Scenario Pack brings you both the Korea Civilization and the new Scenario: The Samurai Invasion of Korea, to further enhance your Civilization V experience. Rule the world as Sejong, King of the Choson Dynasty, with your invincible Turtle Ships and Hwach’a artillery!

Scenario Description: The great warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi has unified Japan. To keep his Samurai busy, his eye now turns west to Korea. Will he be able to expand his empire? Or will Korea's Chinese allies arrive in time? Play as one of four Civilizations: Korea, China, Manchuria, or Japan.

Sejong the Great (1397-1450 AD) was the fourth king of the Choson Dynasty of Korea, and considered by many to be the greatest king in Korean history. His reign was marked by his deep care for his people’s welfare and his encouragement of sciences and technology. He is credited with the creation of the Korean written language.

Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario Pack

The Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario Pack adds three new wonders to Sid Meier’s Civilization V: The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Statue of Zeus, and the Temple of Artemis. Each of these early wonders brings powerful benefits to the civilization which can construct them!

The Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario is a race between civilizations at the dawn of time. Each Civilization is competing to be the greatest builder of Wonders of the Ancient World. Play as one of the five civilizations and leave an indelible mark on history, or fade away into the dust of the past!

For single player, the AI is better but still rather hit or miss. It's possible that the erratic behavior of certain races is dependent on a leader's persona, but even so the AI still feels somewhat challenged when it comes to combat.

For multi player, there have been very few changes in that respect. The AI still does not contact you at all - a HUGE con.

While I feel like they're working on fixing this game up, I still feel like it's a ways out from being as addictive as Civ 4 was for me. The hex tiles and one unit per tile format is a great gameplay change, but the other areas require work.
