Civ 5 gets two new map packs
Upcoming map packs for Civilization 5 will keep the outlines of familiar land masses from the real world, but jumble interior tiles. The first pack is "Scrambled Continents," available today, which contains outlines of Africa, Eastern Asia, North and South America, Western Europe, Middle East and a thawed Antarctica.

The second pack, "Scrambled Nations," available November 5, includes outlines of Canada, Australia, Japan, Scandinavia, Great Britain and China.

In what must be a typo, the packs are priced at $5 apiece. That's got to be a typo, right? Nope, but it should be.

New York, NY – October 15, 2013 – 2K and Firaxis Games announced today that two new map packs* are coming to Sid Meier's Civilization® V. The Scrambled Continents map pack is now available from participating digital retailers for $4.99. The Scrambled Nations map pack will be available from participating digital retailers on November 5, 2013, also for $4.99. Inspired by the Scramble for Africa scenario included in Sid Meier's Civilization V: Brave New World, these map packs include real geographic outlines with randomized interiors, giving players even more ways to experience Civilization V and achieve world domination.

The Scrambled Continents map pack gives fans a new way to play Civilization V where they will use a wide variety of real-world geographic locations as the backdrops for their games. While the familiar outline of the continent's geography stays constant, the interior landscape changes each time you play, resulting in endless replayability and countless plausible scenarios. The maps included in Scrambled Continents are Africa, Eastern Asia, North and South America, Western Europe, Middle East, a thawed Antarctica, new scripted maps for Small Continents, Oceania, and one map including all of Earth's continents.

The Scrambled Nations map pack is available on November 5, 2013 and includes maps for the geographic regions of Canada, Australia, Japan, Scandinavia, Great Britain and China. The geographic outlines of each nation are exact; however, as with the Scrambled Continents map pack, the interiors are randomized each time a new game begins, resulting in unlimited replayability.

Sid Meier's Civilization V is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available for Windows-based PC and Mac. For more information on Civilization V, please visit www.civilization.com, become a fan on Facebook, follow Civ on Twitter and subscribe on YouTube.

*The Scrambled Continents map pack and Scrambled Nations map pack both require Civilization V to play.
