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 much more.
‘Sid Meier’s Civilization V: 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.”
Developed by Firaxis Games, Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Gods & Kings 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, offering even more ways for players to expand their empire on their quest to rule the world.
‘We can’t wait for fans to get started on their quest to achieve world domination in all-new ways with Civilization V: Gods & Kings,’ said Sid Meier, director of creative development for Firaxis Games. ‘Gods & Kings is one of the best expansions we’ve ever created, delivering countless hours of new gameplay experiences for Civ players around the world.’
