Amazon currently has a sale for Civ III Complete + Civ IV Complete + Civ V complete, all for $17.

Pretty certain III&V have Steam codes, while IV might have a redeemable CD code (it's unclear.)

Honestly I'd just go with that, though really, IV Complete on its own is something like $5, right? It's definitely a good game, especially thanks to all the huge mods available.

u/johnnythornton · 1 pointr/civ

Start with Civ V with all expansions. I was a diehard RTS guy until a friend of mine got me drunk enough to experiment with civ. My life hasn't been the same since.

I haven't played Civ 4 but Civ V is awesome. I don't know why you wouldn't start with the most recent game, I mean it got rave reviews, GOTY awards, sold millions of copies, etc. etc.

25 bucks for .... at a minimum hundreds of hours of entertainment. I've probably put around 600 hours into civ at this point, and enjoyed every second of it.

u/memoryspaceglitch · 2 pointsr/civ

Come on, it's not that bad to live in Sweden. Try if you want the boxed version, they're usually quite good priced and ships for free over £25 :) I hope that goes for Civ BE as well :)

u/Alathas · 3 pointsr/civ

Civ V was my first strategy game, and I will say it probably has the best tutorial in any strategy game I've found, it tells you what you're meant to be doing as you play, so playing the game should be fine for your first time. Perhaps play Rome as their bonuses are solid, yet dull, in that they don't change the way you play particularly, so it's a good civilization to start with as there aren't any extra civ-specific things to worry about on top of the game. I would suggest also buying Brave New World if it's on sale (at the moment, you can get everything that isn't civ: BE at crazy low price: BNW makes Civ V go from a merely decent-good game to an excellent game. That said, you might want to try playing Civ V without BNW first, so you don't get overwhelmed by all the new mechanics.

u/disco_biscuit · 2 pointsr/civ

Can anyone help me out here? I didn't see a link on the main landing page, but I found these two:

BNW - Amazon - $14.99

G&K - Amazon - $14.99

I just bought vanilla during the last Steam sale (this game is amazing BTW)... what's the difference between these two expansion DLC's? Are there others? Is one better than the other? Do they both add different content, should I buy both?

u/SovietShark · 2 pointsr/civ

Yes, but it looks like you can activate the disk's CD key on steam

I'm pretty sure it's what I did but I think I bought the CD and activated it on steam for vanilla Civ 5 before buying complete edition years later, so I'm not sure if it's different..

This is on amazon and says $12.50 for PC download

u/drakeonaplane · 1 pointr/civ

Gold edition is on sale. It will give you a code that you put into steam, and you get the base game and all dlc, including g&k. I highly recommend g&k since the religion mechanic and new civs make the game far more interesting. This is probably the best sale you'll find on it. If you already have the base game, the code will just add all dlc and g&k, which is still worth it IMO.

u/Phoolis · 1 pointr/civ

Personally I'd just get it whichever way is cheapest in the long run. If there's a nice save on the bundle (like the Gold edition which has G&K) I'd get that and worry about BNW later. The Gold edition includes a bunch of previously released Civilizations, which really freshen up the game.

As complete beginner to the whole series, I had a blast with just the vanilla game at start. That being said, the two expansions really tweak an already good game into perfection. I wouldn't be able to switch back to vanilla after playing with them both.

EDIT: For example the base game is 20 dollars on amazon right now. You can wait for a sale on Steam for the Gold edition upgrade, which will be around 2-5 dollars, and get BNW when it's on sale etc.

u/starkfield · 3 pointsr/civ

Oh definitely start at Prince. I had very little experience with Civ (see previous comment) or really any similar games outside of Pharoah/Caesar and starting at Prince made it a lot more fun/challenging to start. Civ is REALLY boring if you start winning and stay winning (after like the first game...the first total domination game is pretty satisfying). And yes, wait for the epic sale! I actually got this for $20 recently (even though I already had most of IV and base V) which had IV and V complete and XCOM as well...great deal if you didn't have any of them. Unfortunately it's over, but keep an eye out on other sites besides Steam for good deals!

This bundle on Amazon is 20 bucks and includes the Civ 5 Gold Edition which covers all content currently available for the game (G&K, all DLC Civs, maps, etc.) as well as Civ IV and XCOM which are fantastic games. Brave New World is currently 27 bucks to preorder the downloadable version.

u/Jewtheist · 2 pointsr/civ

Salt is probably the most important of the luxury resources throughout history, so it's very accurate that it's the best one. There's an interesting read on it.

u/Kremecakes · 1 pointr/civ

You can wait for the winter sale, otherwise the best I can find is amazon for $22.84, then buy something for around $2.16 to get free shipping.

u/supadoodles · 3 pointsr/civ

Generally, whenever I commit to a game series, I do it the right way. Like you, I'll be waiting until it (hopefully) becomes a Daily Deal..

If the GOTY edition becomes a Daily Deal, I'll definitely get it. There's a lot of extra content, and I think you'd probably feel like you're missing out if you didn't get them all. It doesn't seem like that much extra money anyhow.
$20 for GOTY and Civ IV on Amazon

u/KJAZZ · 7 pointsr/civ

You can spend twenty bucks on Amazon and get both Civ 4 complete, Civ 5 GOTY, and The Stronghold Collection - this is probably the most bang for your buck at the minute.

Unfortunately does not include G&K though.

Alternatively, you could spend $12 for Civ 4 Complete and normal (not GOTY) Civ 5, found here.

Gods and Kings is 25% off at Greenmangaming, and if you "buy" their free game today, you'll get a coupon for 20% off anything until the end of July, so you could pick up Gods and Kings for $18 even...

The choices are yours, and yours alone! Good luck.

u/SenatorVreenak · 2 pointsr/civ

Even with the Summer Sale, Steam is no where near with best deal right now.

Much better deal for the GOTY
US$20 for Civ 5 GOTY (All DLC) & Civ 4 (everything) & Stronghold series

Better deal for G&K
US$22.50 for G&K

Note: all of the above games come with steam activation codes.

u/gensolo · 2 pointsr/civ

You can get V GOTY plus IV Complete as well as the Stronghold collection on Amazon for 19.99:

IV and Stronghold activate on Steam as well as V.

u/vizualb · 3 pointsr/civ

It's definitely still a complete game and one you can have a lot fun with. It's sort of a case where you don't know what you're missing. Many people played hundreds of hours of vanilla prior to the release of Gods and Kings two years later.

My advice would be to refund your purchase in Steam if you haven't played 2 hours yet, then purchase a code here for the complete edition for $10.

u/lessmiserables · 5 pointsr/civ

Well...OK, maybe I worded that poorly.

Food preservation was much more important for military applications than it was for everyday life. I.e., salt allowed provisions to last significantly longer, which meant that military excursions could last longer and go further (and cheaper!). Whereas from a civilian day-to-day standpoint its effects were significant but relatively smaller.

There's a reason in Rise of Nations Salt reduced the cost of infantry units.

I recommend this book: Salt: A World History.

Jacking top commet to let people know about this deal
Civ 5 GOLD COMPLETE (Comes with Brave New World) $29.99 (63% off)

u/ruben588 · 1 pointr/civ

Hey i was browsing /r/gamedeals and came acros this deal for civ 5 complete edition for $25 and thought of you.

You might wanna take a look at that.

Have fun!

u/cochon101 · 7 pointsr/civ

I 100% know I am buying it when it comes out, so yeah I'll save 10% now.

edit: and according to Amazon BNW launches on July 9th

Edit : July 9th

u/Hurricane043 · 1 pointr/civ

You are reading his post wrong.

>Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods and Kings
>by 2K Games
>List Price: $29.99 Price: $24.39 You Save: $5.60 (19%)

I did the same thing at first. Got excited for a second :(.

And just an FYI, even though the $24.39 is cheaper (it is actually $23.98 for me, so it would appear that it varies), it is the boxed version and requires you to pay shipping if you don't have Amazon Prime or if you aren't spending over $25.

u/mammothfriend · 1 pointr/civ

Yes it should, and according to the page on amazon here the wonders of the ancient world scenario pack DLC is listed as included.

u/Bonta-Kun · 3 pointsr/civ

FYI, Amazon is matching the sale price on their download service and it activates on Steam (means you get two copies of the game, one through Amazon's downloader, and another through Steam): Link

u/ExoticCarMan · 2 pointsr/civ

It looks like xnoseatbelt answered your question, so I would like to point out that Gold Edition is currently on sale at Amazon for 75% off.

u/aBLTea · 1 pointr/civ

Since the link has a list of all the games on the sale, here are the individual Civ games:

u/TakingKarmaFromABaby · 1 pointr/civ

Buy both:It is on sale for Amazon. Civ IV the complete edition and Base Civ V.

You could wait until the end of the week to see if there is a better deal on Steam, or bight now.

Also, the Civ V DLC is discounted right now on steam.

u/Phreshzilla · 1 pointr/civ

Theres a bundle for Gold Edition Civ 5 + Civ 4 (both with all expansions) + Xcom for 20 bucks. I bought that and I love it. I have the amazon link, but id have to edit my comment later when I get on my laptop.

EDIT: [Here] ( is the link to the 20 bucks deal.

u/therealcrow999 · 2 pointsr/civ

Yeah it's on sale right now on Amazon: Sid Meier's Civilization V: The Complete Edition - PC

When you buy it they send you box with cd and code. You use the code to activate the game on Steam. So I assume once you get game you can send him the key code to activate on Steam.

u/aba84389 · 10 pointsr/civ

if you're interested you can get Civ 4, Civ 5 +(g&k) and xcom for $20 here

u/GanoesParan · 4 pointsr/civ

It's not just GMG, it's all third party sellers. I think 2K has to blame for this, don't see anyone else I could blame. Amazon would certainly be releasing the keys if they had them.

Take a look at that, Amazon is still offering the game as a preorder.

u/ClemClem510 · 1 pointr/civ

It's $10 on Amazon if you're interested - it's a steam key so not a problem

u/Gregman · 1 pointr/civ

I don't want to make a new post about this small question:

Why does price so differ for pre-order?


UK amazon £26.99 = EUR34

GE amazon EUR49,95 = £39.82

u/cndman · 10 pointsr/civ

Actually you can straight up buy the "complete edition" on amazon right now for $30.
So for 30 you can get all dlc (G&K+BNW+all the little dlcs) and have an extra copy of Civ.

EDIT: Here is the link

u/Carpe_deis · 6 pointsr/civ

You are so right! Modern IRL civs don't just ban random luxury goods (kinder eggs, pot, heroin, horse meat) that gameplay feature is totally unrealistic.

Salt and citrus, so unimportant in the modern world, film and luxury jewelry are way more important.

Film industry: 38 billion in global sales, 2016

Jewelry: 70 billion in global sales, 2016

Citrus: 100 billion in global sales, 2015

Salt: 21 billion in global value, 2013. This is just for NaCl, MgSO4 or magnesium sulphate is another 7 billion (in 2015) and there are a number of other "salts" out there that "salt" in civ undoubtedly represents, since there are no sodium bisulphate, potassium dichromate, or calcium chloride luxury resources represented, and are these key pieces of historic and modern food and chemical production. If anything salts are far more important in a modernized industrial world than in a pre industrial world.

If anything salt should be a strategic luxury, required for most classical through modern era units.

u/leafypixiestix · 3 pointsr/civ

If you want to get it, you can get it on amazon here for 16 bucks! Includes all the dlc too

u/Coldthroat · 1 pointr/civ

Some additional info:

u/tbar78 · 3 pointsr/civ

There's a bundle to download on Amazon this month that has all of the Civ 4 and all of the DLC and Civ 5 GOTY for $20. Oh, and you'll get Stronghold Collection. I bought and never looked back.

u/[deleted] · 9 pointsr/civ

Gotcha. On that link the complaints are about steam, but on the original without Gold they rip the game apart.

u/Buscat · 2 pointsr/civ

Amazon is having some crazy sales on civ 5 and the expansions, so now's the time to do it.

I'd get both. All the gameplay changes from G&K are included in BNW, but you'd miss out on a lot of cool civs if you just get that.

u/rathmourn · 1 pointr/civ

Firaxis Complete Bundle - $19.99 on Amazon

Buy this, you get Civ5 Gold Edition (Errry single DLC/expansion), CivIV Complete (Errry single dlc/expansion) and XCOM:EU.

Go onto /r/SteamGameSwap and trade away the stuff you don't want for stuff you do.

Just saying, that's what I'd do...

Edit: You're likely to be able to trade the extra stuff for a copy of the BNW expansion, which would be icing on the cake.

u/royalewitcheez · 2 pointsr/civ

Civ 5 (with 4) for $12

Gods & Kings for $20.50

(Use the promo code 25OFF-ALLTH-EGAME at checkout)

That will get you rolling with everything you need to get started. The civilization/maps DLC aren't on sale right now, so I'd hold off on those until they are. You should be able to get them all for around $7 total. ($1.50-$3 per civ/pack during 75% off sales.)

u/Jaggedmallard26 · 5 pointsr/civ

The "PROVISORIE" is the key bit, thats an old version of cover art with a provisional age rating. The actual PEGI rating is 12 as shown here.

u/Vangeir · 4 pointsr/civ

Civ 5 is all 50% off (except for Gods and Kings). Which is still more expensive than:

u/Wolfehouse · 2 pointsr/civ

Vanilla is currently on sale at Amazon for 11.

u/facesofdef · 3 pointsr/civ

The Amazon pre-order comes with:

Pre-order the PC download of Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth and get the Exoplanets Map Pack + a $5 Video Games credit.

There's really no additional info on the Map pack, but I pre-ordered anyway.

u/fantasticmrfoxr · 1 pointr/civ

I think an even better deal than $12.49 would be to get the Firaxis pack off Amazon, you still get Civ 5 gold edition but you also get XCOM enemy unknown and Civ 4 complete edition, all this for only $20 link!

u/innoutberger · 1 pointr/civ

So I have Civ V Gold edition, but no BNW. If I get BNW in this deal, what else would I be missing?
