2K Games and Firaxis Games announced today that Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods & Kings expansion pack is now available for Windows-based PC and Mac in North America and will be available internationally on June 22, 2012.
Spanning the breadth of human civilization, the Gods & Kings expansion pack takes players from founding the first Pantheon of the Gods and spreading religion across the world, to deploying spies in enemy cities to steal information and technology, and more.
“Gods & Kings continues the tradition of content-rich expansion packs for the Civilization series,” said Sarah Anderson, senior vice president of marketing for 2K. “It is the ultimate Civilization V addition, giving fans and newcomers another reason to keep playing ‘one more turn.’”
The expansion takes players through time as they engage in new quests and global competitions, interact with new types of city-states, and master exciting new systems for land and naval combat. Nine new civilizations, each ruled by a new leader; nine new wonders; three original scenarios; and dozens of new units, buildings, technologies and resources have also been added.
Gods & Kings requires a copy of Civilization V to play.
