Two New Map Packs Coming to Civilization V
2K and Firaxis will be rolling out two new map packs for Sid Meier's Civilization V
. They are the Scrambled Continents pack, which is available today, and the upcoming Scrambled Nations pack.
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.
The Scrambled Continents pack can be yours for just $4.99 (USD) once digital retailers start to release it. As of right now, it doesn't look like it's even available through Steam yet, but just keep an eye out. Also coming soon is the Scrambled Eggs map pack (not really
