Companies that support Mac gaming are few and far between. Windows PCs tend to get all of the love when it comes to major gaming releases. Which is why Civilization V has been such an amazing experience for Mac gamers. Not only is it an amazing strategy game, but it also released on Mac fairly soon after the PC. Now Aspyr is releasing seven new downloadable content packs that bring the Mac version fully up to speed with the PC.
According to the press release, the new DLC releases are as follows:
-Civilization and Scenario Pack: The Mongols includes the new playable Mongols civilization as well as a new scenario, Rise of the Mongols. The Mongols DLC will be automatically available to Mac users when they log in to their Steam accounts.
-Civilization Pack: Babylon includes the new playable Babylon civilization and its leader Nebuchadnezzar II. As King of Babylon, gamers will be able to expand their empire with advanced Babylonian Bowmen to rightfully earn the title of Nebuchadnezzar the Great. The Babylon DLC will be available for free to Mac users who purchased the Civilization V Deluxe Edition and will also be available for sale.
-Cradle of Civilization Map Packs include playable maps that can be played with historically accurate Civilizations or random leaders. The Cradle of Civilization Map Packs include the Americas, Asia, the Mediterranean and Mesopotamia; each map costs $2.99, or they can all be bought together for $9.99.
-Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca includes two new playable leaders and Civilizations: Isabella of Spain and Pachacuti of the Inca. The DLC pack also includes a new playable scenario, Conquest of the New World.
Civilization V is the latest game in one of the most revered video game series of all time. Essentially a modified version of world history, it places the player in control of a tribe at the dawn of human civilization. From there the player build's their civilization over the ensuing 5,000 years until reaching the modern day. You can sculpt every aspect of the civilization to your wishes. You can decide if you'll be a democratic or dictatorial nation and if you'll be a peaceful or warring people (among countless other decisions.) The world is populated by other AI-controlled leaders as well, which often leads to fascinating tangled alliances and hilariously unscripted events. It never really gets old when Ghandi gets angry and declares war on you.
