    Been tracking this games price for a while, thanks :D

    •  

      Just too bad it's right before the first substantial DLC is released (Rise & Fall - 8th Feb). You'll have the game for less than a month and already have the old game. I'd rather wait until a definitive/all-DLC/etc edition is released, don't care if that means waiting another year or so.

        and by then Civ7 will be out with better bells and whistles (and probably bundled too lol)

    Great price. About half the price I've ever seen it and I've actively been looking. These are region locked which makes it hard to find at key resellers.

    Nice! Very tempting, been keen to give this a go. Great price! There goes my summer

  • +2 votes

    The cheapest price before this was on stack social, was $29.99 usd with 40% off making it $17.99 usd, with no dlc at all. So unless you want all the dlc, this is the best price to get it at.

        • +4 votes

          Matter of opinion but Civ5 became way to easy once you figured out the basics. At least Civ6 has enough variables to keep it interesting. Also you can only have a few wonders per a city instead of being able to wonder stack, much more balanced.

          What? That's not possible. The game is literally constructed on an RNG. There's no such thing as too easy. You are just playing the wrong people/setups.

          Civ5 is much better than anything that succeeded it.

          @StoneSin: Well you can build your games on random number generation all you like but once you've got a leg up on your opponent it's more or less a numbers grind. Civ6 gave me what I needed, enough diversity to keep things interesting.

        • -2 votes

          @UponOccasion: So you're saying, once you have an advantage in a game then it's no fun?

          Civ5 isn't unbalanced and there's no such thing as snowballing.

          All of the civ games are diverse and endless, it's just a subjective matter of opinion which one you like best and feel has the right features for you. If you're going to be playing the same match for hours on end yes you want to be able to enjoy it and not feel like you are just grinding to the victory condition. How you find that enjoyment differs by player and that is entirely subjective.

          I don't care which one you like, that's not what my comments even mention. I just don't think one can say any of them are 'easy', because they aren't. You are playing them wrong, that's all.

          No need to get upset that you can't read a simple comment…

        •  

          @StoneSin: I also liked the two Call to Power games, sure they were not as popular as the Civilisation series, but I still thought they were pretty darn good.

        •  

          @raptormesh: Yes the game is still historically accurate.

          @UponOccasion:

          Civ 5 is a complete, finished game.

          Civ 6 is a work in progress. Still have several expansion packs to be released. Civ games tend to release 1-3 expansion packs after the base game is released - plus a lot of smaller DLC.

          Civ 6 is better now then on release, but will be better again after the next 2 expansion packs.

        Civ IV is the best of the series, V and VI have their merits but IV reigns supreme. Still my number one game to this day after I don't know how many years..

      I’ve also been wanting to try a Civ game.

      Can’t go wrong at that price.

      Also consider CIV1 to CIV4, they can be cheaper than chips during sale and still very enjoyable to play. Humble Bundle had them for $1 more than once. CIV3 and CIV4 are still considered by many the best. I also bought the non-DRM version of CIV3 and CIV4 from GOG just in order to keep them. Your CIV experience will only considered complete when you have played every one of them.

      • +1 vote

        CIV3 and CIV4 are still considered by many the best.

        Still playable by modern standards?

        I've found a lot of older games have such bad UIs that they are almost unplayable (eg the original Fallout and Deus Ex)

        • +2 votes

          I like the older UI. Depends on your expectations though. Civ being a turn based game works well without too much going on. Having now toyed a little with Civ VI, I can see why people were anti the new art style etc.

          I really liked the expansions and mods for Civ V, really made the mechanics work nicely. It's a mature game now - it did lack a fair bit on release.

        • +1 vote

          I completely agree about UIs and two game examples you gave. Civ 3 is a bit old on that front but Civ 4 has a modern UI and very easy to operate.

    • +3 votes

      I've played a heap of V and VI and would easily say that VI is not only better for beginners, but is the better game.

    Good price
    The question is whether to wait for the expansion(s) or not

    • +2 votes

      I have a big backlog of games. I'll wait it out for the full version. The expansions are what made Civ V so good.

    • +5 votes

      Make no mistake, buying early into a 2k game will mean you'll always pay more for it should you wish to purchase any DLC later on.

      It's also no surprise that the first expansion pack is just about to be released..

      It's almost becoming the norm that Humble are deliberately selling shells of games in the hopes you'll buy (non discounted) DLC.

      And personally, I've got no problem with it.. If 2k/activision/bethesda cannot produce a decent 'game' on release, there's absolutely no way in hell I've ever rebuy it as a GOTY edition or any DLC.

      Just take it into consideration because it is a deliberate ploy.

      •  

        Civilization VI has gotten very good critic reviews though:

        the franchise evolved over time, gradually grafting new ideas onto its classic framework—a process that’s now culminated in Civilization VI: the deepest, most well-rounded base game the series has ever seen.

        Civilization VI will go down in history as the most fully-featured launch version in the series.

        Sight, sound, and systems harmonize to make Civilization 6 the liveliest, most engrossing, most rewarding, most challenging 4X in any corner of the earth.

      •  

        I agreed with this.

  •  

    The subscription is 12 USD a month, do we get to keep the game if the subscription is cancelled after a month?

    • +2 votes

      yeah it's added to steam library.

    • +1 vote

      You can cancel a minute after you've activated the game on Steam if you want.

      When I did it (for the Rise of the Tomb Raider month) I cancelled closer to the date so I could get the extra games they add later (but I'm told you get them anyway even if you've already cancelled, I'm just paranoid)… just make sure to pay attention to your calendar :)

      •  

        So really it's best just to cancel instantly after you've downloaded the game?

        •  

          Probably! Back then I just wasn't sure I'd get the extras so I played safe…

        •  

          Depends. Monthly subscribers get 10% off their store. If I don't intend to buy anything from their store before the renewal, I would cancel immediately just in case I forgot.

  •  

    This is the game in my wishlist. Is this steam version? I am not sure if there is any other version than steam..

    •  

      yes activated in steam

  •  

    Looks like the next billing date is 23/02/18. Is it possible to get one more month of games by cancelling the subscription just before the billing date?

    • +2 votes

      Nope.

  •  

    Amazing price. Thank you!

  •  

    Just curious - do people buy and can later sell this game? Either because you never got time to play it or to make a profit?

    •  

      its against the bundle terms but people do it - particularly on g2a

      •  

        Thanks. g2a?

          Scummy cd key website

          site for reselling cdkeys, buyer beware

  •  

    Civ 5 is a magnificent game now thanks to the DLC and active modding support in Nqmod. Plus it has a fantastic play via email support using giant multiplayer robot.

    It is one of the greatest games ever made but has taken a lot of time and work to get there. Civ 6 needs about 2 years of development to catch up and should be fantastic to play then. For now I strongly recommend Civ 5.

    •  

      If I just buy the base game is it still worthwhile?

      I've never tried modding anything, is it OK for average non-programmer gamers like me?

      (I remember hearing how Skyrim modding would lead to endless timewasting and crashes, more than actually playing the game!)

      • +1 vote

        Civ 5 complete is the version to get.

        Installing Nqmod is about 3 out of 10 difficulty. You unzip a file to a given location, then select Mod in the game menu. Pretty basic stuff.

        •  

          Ah, that's super easy! It's multiple mod conflicts that seem a pain… I see Complete Edition is only $23 local or $14 online… Thanks!

      Very easy. A click of a button

    •  

      You can subscribe, get your keys, and then cancel. You'll still get the additional games revealed when the next month's bundle goes live.

  •  

    If I have the base game already can I gift that and keep the DLC?

      Yep the DLC come as separate keys.

      Yes

    very tempted. Haven't play Civ before.

    Thanks. Subscribed to get the code, bought the rest of the DLC and preordered the expansion pack at 10% off, before cancelling the subscription.

    Sure there may be better deals down the track if you wait for the full package that includes everything, but this may be the best deal if you want to start playing the expansion pack on the day it's released. Good enough for me anyway. :)

        Thanks mate. I just read someone confirm it on their FB page too. I've almost both this game 3 times in the last month. First for almost $80, then for $60 and then for $34 (none of them with the addons).

        Got it now :-)

  •  

    Have not played civ since civ 4 which I didn't like. But might give this a shot seeing as so cheap.

    How do the humble deal thing work? Do you just get a game every month? Is it just in the form of a steam key?

    •  

      This is Humble Monthly so you get around 6-8 games a month. Civilization VI is the "early unlock" that you get from subscribing now and you will get the rest of the games early next month. It's fantastic value in my opinion as you get the cheapest price ever for Civ VI as well as other games. You can also cancel whenever you want and yes, most of the games come as steam keys. Don't forget to use my referral link should you decide to sign up :)
