Civilization V Free Weekend & Sale

Steam News announces a free weekend is underway for Sid Meier's Civilization V, and that the turn-based strategy sequel is on sale for 75% off (the links currently erroneously read "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive," but they point to the right place). Here's the recruiting pitch: "Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the dawn of man into the space age: Wage war, conduct diplomacy, discover new technologies, go head-to-head with some of history’s greatest leaders and build the most powerful empire the world has ever known."

Ah, excellent! Thank you MoonSpook. I presume they just send a Steam code when it is released?

That's always been my experience, Steam code in your email and you can log into the site and view your code there too.

That £2.50 upgrade appears to include G+K - that's a bargain.

BNW isn't available in the UK from GMG. The user review on GMG is, erm, interesting. It's a glowing, 99/100 review for something which "is virtually unplayable". Wut? So an expansion - which isn't actually available yet - is nearly perfect, yet almost unplayable. Right-o.

I wrote a whole paragraph about how it IS available in the UK and didn't know what you were looking at, then realised you clicked the link in a post earlier - that's an NA specific page. Just go to the front page in the UK and it's advertised in two places, or just clicky here.

And yeah, I've no idea what crack that reviewer is on o.O

For those with vanilla Civ 5 (or just without all the DLC), Steam have a Civ 5 Upgrade that is just £2.50 (which is, what, 4 bucks?) - that nets you ALL the Gold Edition content, DLC and expansions alike, apart from Brave New World. Absolute bargain.

Yep I plan on getting the expansion as well. They've done good with Civ5 over time.

Brave New World expansion pack has just become available to pre-order, which is presumably why they're having the free weekend, much like Saints Row is doing.

It's 10% off, down from £20 to £18. Seems expensive, although the same as I paid for Gods + Kings which was worth it if you're a Civ V fan.
