?Civilization V is a fantastic addition to the Steam Workshop,? said Jason Holtman, Director of Business Development for Steam. ?We hope that the Steam Workshop will provide another avenue for the many talented Civ Vmod creators to have their work seen and played by millions of Civ V fans.?
Civilization V features fully animated leaders interacting with players from a screen-filling diplomatic scene and speaking in their native language. Wars between empires feel massive, as armies dominate the landscape and combat is more exciting and intense than ever before. The addition of ranged bombardment allows players to fire weapons from behind the front lines, challenging them to develop clever new strategies to guarantee victory on the battlefield. Civilization V also features an even more extensive suite of community, modding and multiplayer elements with the addition of Steam Workshop.
June 19 also marks the Civilization V expansion release date which is titled, ?Gods and Kings.? Civilization V: Gods and 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.
