Civilization V Special Edition

I like special editions.  I like the Civilization series.  With that in mind, surely you can imagine the fanboy squeal that escaped my mouth this morning when I heard that Civilization V will have a Special Edition. It went something like, “eee!” (I am at work, so I had to restrain myself somewhat).

Unfortunately, we don’t have any pictures of the special edition and it’s goodies yet, but we do have a list of what to expect:

  • 5 metal figurines of in-game units manufactured by Reaper Miniatures
  • 2-disc CD soundtrack of game music
  • “Behind the Scenes at Firaxis on Civilization V”, a making-of documentary DVD
  • 176-page hardcover art book

I don’t know what it will cost in the US, but it’s expected to cost £59.99 in the UK.  The regular edition in the US is $49.99, so hopefully the special edition doesn’t top $69.99.

Who am I kidding, I’ll probably buy it anyway.


Civilization V Special Edition will retail for $99.99 (holy shit).
