Firaxis celebrates the upcoming release of Beyond Earth by releasing the predecessor for free.
Civilization: Beyond Earth is out this week and will no doubt result in an uptick of troubled relationships, skipped classes and sudden sick days. But before that, 2K Games is offering players on Steam the chance to experience Civilization 5 on Steam for no charge. If that weren’t enough, you can also pre-load Beyond Earth on Steam if you’ve pre-ordered it.
Civilization 5 can be downloaded and played through this link but keep in mind that you need to act fast – it will only be available until October 23rd, 10 AM PST. After that, you might as well hop into Civilization: Beyond Earth and take the journey for conquest into space.
If you want to know when Civilization: Beyond Earth will be available for playing after pre-loading it, you can head to the official Facebook page where the unlock times have been detailed. Are you looking forward to Beyond Earth? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
