It’s time to explore a Brave New World! The latest expansion for Civilization V was released today on both PC and Mac, making Mac gamers everywhere do a double take, a little happy dance, and probably lots of other inappropriate things we can’t list here. Even cooler is that Brave New World is available in both Steam and Mac App flavors!
In addition to new civilizations, wonders, unique units, and scenarios, Brave New World also introduces new gameplay features like international trade and a renewed focus on culture and diplomacy. You can learn even more about what the expansion has to bring to the table over on the game’s GameAgent page.
The expansion is currently only available in North America; it will see its worldwide release in just a few days on July 12. While it’s never fun to wait, the upside is that international fans still have time to take advantage of the pre-order discounts! GameAgent members in particular can save 20% (as opposed to 10% for everyone else) by using the special coupon code found on the Brave New World product page. Just remember you need to be logged in to see it!
