If you are a fan of strategy games, you know that one of the leaders in this genre is the Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise. The latest game in the series, Civilization VI, was released in October 2016 and is now available for the PC, Mac and Linux platforms. For the next three days, you can get Civilization VI for just $29.99 from Tech Deals, a 50 percent discount from its normal $59.99 price tag.
The first game in the series was designed by famed strategy game creator Sid Meier and released in 1991. Civilization VI was created by Meier’s team at Firaxis Games. As with previous games in the franchise, your goal is to become ruler of the world by growing your small and primitive tribe of humans to an advanced culture. You can accomplish this goal by waging war against your neighbors, or by diplomacy and trade. As your group of humans grows in number, it also advances its technology through research, and you can win the game via that route. You can even win if your civilization has enough cultural influence over the planet. While Civilization VI has a major single-player mode, you can also compete with friends online in many multiplayer modes.
This special 50 percent off sale is being offered by Aspyr, who develop and publish the Mac and Linux versions of the game. When you purchase this special deal, you get a code that you will use to unlock the full game from the Steam platform. The nice thing is that Steam allows you to get the PC version of Civilization VI for free when you get the Mac and Linux versions, and vice-versa.
If you buy and enjoy playing Civilization VI, you might want to consider purchasing some of the game’s six DLC packs, each of which adds new civilizations, scenarios and more to the game. Also, you might want to get ready for Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, a major expansion pack for the game that’s due for release on Feb. 8, 2018.
