Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is getting a special edition to celebrate the franchise’s 25th Anniversary, but you’ll have to be quick.
The Sid Meier’s Civilization VI 25th Anniversary Edition will be a PC only release and limited to 20,000 copies. It will available at ‘participating retailers’, details of which are currently unknown.
The Sid Meier’s Civilization VI 25th Anniversary Edition includes:
- A copy of the game and all the content from the Digital Deluxe Edition (Digital Soundtrack and four post-launch DLC packs)
- 25th Anniversary Edition premium packaging
- Exclusive 25th Anniversary commemorative coin set with display case
- “Civilization Through the Years” 100-Page hardcover art book
- Aztec Civilization Pack pre-order bonus
It’s the art book that piques our interest. If it’s given the care and attention it deserves it could be beautiful commemoration of the series’ 25 year history which has now sold over 35 million copies worldwide.
Sid Meier, who is now Director of Creative Development at Firaxis Games, said:
“The vitality of Civilization is in the new ideas that each design team brings to the game as well as the passion and feedback from an incredible community. We hope players enjoy the vibrant living world and the new features the team has created in this latest offering. I’m proud of the work they’ve done, and I hope you will enjoy playing Civilization VI as much as they’ve enjoyed making it. Here’s to the next 25 years!”
In addition to the standard and anniversary editions, a Digital Deluxe Edition is also available which includes the 25th Anniversary Digital Soundtrack and access to the four post-launch DLC packs that will add new maps, scenarios, civilizations and leaders.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K games on Windows PC on October 21, 2016.
