Civilization V: Game of the Year Edition reign

2K Games packing six of seven add-on nations, two map packs, digital soundtrack into $50 PC package this month.

2K Games has not been stingy with its postrelease support for Sid Meier's Civilization V, having updated the original game with seven additional nations with which players can rule the world. Those who haven't been able to keep up with all of those releases will soon have an additional option, as 2K Games today announced Civilization V: Game of the Year Edition.

Does the idea of assuming the identity of Nebuchadnezzar II sound exciting?

Due out September 27 for the PC, Civilization V: GOTYE cobbles together the original game with six of the seven add-on nations that have been released as downloadable content. Specifically, gamers will find the Mongol, Babylonian, Spanish, Incan, Polynesian, and Danish civilization and scenario packs. However, 2K Games is holding back the Korean army, which was released on August 11.

Civilization V: GOTYE also includes the Explorer's Map Pack and Cradle of Civilization Map Packs, as well as a digital copy of the game's soundtrack. The expanded package will carry a $50 price tag.

Now For the Expertise Gossip:

Poly count: approx 10,000 triangles (unknown what LOD specs for lower graphics settings are at this stage)
Textures: multiple textures per leader but primarily, diffuse map (512x512) and normal map (2048x2048)*
Materials: one texture/shader per mesh, multiple meshes per character
Facial Animation: 20 to 30 facial bones. Very similar in set-up to Civ IV leaderheads.
