For those who have passed on Civilization V's frequent downloadable content packs, the newly-announced Game of the Year Edition might be of interest. It's launching on September 27 for PC, and includes the game itself plus add-ons in one $49.99 package:
Civilization and Scenario Pack: The Mongols;
Civilization Pack: Babylon;
Cradle of Civilization Map Packs: Mesopotamia, Americas, Asia and Mediterranean;
Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca;
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Polynesia;
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark – The Vikings;
Explorer’s Map Pack;
Sid Meier’s Civilization V digital soundtrack.
Granted, Civ Vcan be obtained for $29.99 as a standalone purchase. So there's not a huge incentive to go for this definitive bundle unless you're actually into the extras.
