2K Games launched a DLC-bundled Complete Edition of Firaxis' life-consuming strategy game Civilization 5 today, serving up a meaty collection of expansions and map packs alongside the core Civ 5 experience.

Civilization 5: The Complete Edition includes the previously released Gods & Kings and Brave New World expansion packs, along with every add-on map pack released for the game to date. Featured content includes the Explorer's Map Pack, a trio of Civilization and Scenario Pack add-ons, and several entries in the Cradle of Civilization series of playable maps.

The compilation also includes the new Conquest of the New World Deluxe Scenario, which challenges players to relive Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage across the Atlantic. The Deluxe Scenario is available as a free upgrade to players who previously purchased the Brave New World expansion pack on Steam, and will be bundled with all Brave New World purchases going forward.
