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).
