2K Games, a publishing label of

Meier’s Civilization IV®: The Complete Edition is now available in stores across
North America. This definitive collection for Games for Windows® delivers the
complete Civilization IV experience in one value-priced, DRM-free package.

As one of the most respected
franchises in the gaming industry, Civilization has sold more than 9 million
units worldwide. Developed by 2K’s Firaxis Games, Civilization IV: The Complete
Edition combines the award-winning classic Civilization IV experience with three
expansions: Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Warlords®, Sid Meier’s Civilization IV:
Beyond the Sword®, and Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Colonization™. This
value-enriched package keeps players immersed in the “just one more turn”
gameplay that has been synonymous with the Civilization series for decades:

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV

• Winner of multiple 2005 Game of
the Year awards, Civilization IV comes to life in a beautifully detailed 3D
world that heightens the gameplay experience. This latest iteration of the
strategy classic takes the franchise to new heights with the addition of new
ways to play and win; new tools to manage and grow your civilization; all-new,
easy-to-use mod capabilities; and various multiplayer modes and options.

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV:

  • Warlords adds new twists and
    challenges to some of the most creative scenarios in the series. In the Omens
    scenario, Great Britain and France race to settle North America at any cost,
    while the Barbarians scenario allows players to take control of ruthless
    hordes of warriors. With these brutal Barbarians under the player’s control,
    their goal is to conquer all other civilizations on the map by decimating
    opposing armies, looting the cities and burning them to the ground.

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Beyond
the Sword

  • Beyond the Sword was released in
    2007 and proved to be the biggest single Civilization expansion pack to date.
    This expansion focuses on the late-game time periods after the invention of
    gunpowder and delivers 11 challenging and decidedly different scenarios
    created by the development team at Firaxis Games, as well as members of the
    Civilization Fan Community. Beyond the Sword also includes ten new
    civilizations, 16 new leaders, five new wonders, and a variety of new units
    that will offer even more fun and exciting ways for players to expand their
    civilization’s power as they strive for world domination.

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV:

  • Colonization is a standalone game
    experience that adds an entirely new scenario to the ever-evolving world of
    Civilization. In Colonization, players lead one of four European nations on a
    quest to colonize and thrive in the New World. Players are challenged to guide
    their people from the oppressive motherland; discover the New World; and
    negotiate, trade and fight as they acquire power and battle for their freedom
    and independence.

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: The
Complete Edition for Games for Windows is available in North America starting
today for a suggested retail price of $39.99. The title is rated E10+ for
Everyone 10 and older by the ESRB.
