Steam sales are currently booming due to the holiday season, and one of those sales brought one of the PC platform’s best strategy games down to just $5.99. The game in question is none other than Side Meier’s Civilization VI which is the latest in a long line of strategy games. Considering the game typically costs $59.99, that’s a bargain any day, but it’s an even better deal now that we know the game will get even more DLC in the future, even though it’s about five years old now from.
Civilization VI, for those who have never played the series, tasks players with raising a fledgling empire to great heights by customizing cities, making deals with others, and waging war when it is unavoidable to ensure your civilization has the best is who it can be. The games are good enough to have made as many as we already have, which is saying something in itself, and Civilization VI specifically is currently ranked as the No. 5 strategy game in Steam’s own top rated rankings for that genre.
Of course, starting with Civilization VI in itself is just that: the beginning of the game. Plenty of DLC options have been released over time to the point that there are expansions and different bundles to look at if you want to enhance your experience, but thankfully for those looking to add something to the game, those are also for sale. For example, there is the “Anthology” bundle that contains 17 items in addition to the game itself. That normally costs $209.85, but it’s on sale now for just $29.77. If you want something smaller, there’s also the “Platinum Edition” bundle that comes with eight extra items and costs just $15 compared to the usual price of $167.91.
Pretty incredible deals all around, but like any good Steam sale deal, this one won’t last forever. For these discounts in particular, it looks like the special promotion will end on November 22, so you’ll have the next few days to pick up the game (or any bundle) before the deal expires on Tuesday.
