    I would guess so? The average is currently £4.56, and includes the lower tier and the vouchers for money off Civ VI
    Someone screwed up the pricing structure!
    They've put the 2 best games in the lowest bracket!!

    It goes up exponentially with time I find, so you're best deciding what you want early
    Civ IV and dlc is 4 separate Steam 'Games' For your Library May not be Good if Your OCD
    Civ 4 Complete for 86p is a sweet deal if you're new to the series.
    Not a bundle for me, as I already have everything aside from Beyond Earth and can't really justify spending the $15 for that when I'm not sure that I'd play it much (if/when I get bored of Civ V, I have Endless Legend and Age of Wonders III in reserve) - but the value's certainly there is you don't own these!

    Also, 86p? Sterling's not *quite* dropped that low yet AFAIK - are you basing that off the poor rates offered by PayPal?

    Yeah, I normally go off Paypal, so I just normally put £0.86 as I think it's around that on Paypal, I know paying with a card can be lower I just have no way of checking unless I use XE which says around £0.80

    You need two tabs open for Humble. Keep one open with a reduced BTA price (usually 7:15-7:30pm) and then use another to monitor movement up or down.

    If it starts rapidly increasing you can still checkout using the tab with the lowest price

    You're doing things wrong (unless of course this is because you're buying at top tier)

    To an extent they share some mechanics with the turn-based strategic layer of Total War, but overall they're quite different. If you enjoy strategy games at all, I'd say go for this - you really ought to have at least some exposure to and understand of Civilization!
    shame. wish it is civ 6 on the top tier
    Tempted. Never ever played civ game but have soft spot strategy games ( games like age of empires/ total annihilation back in the day )

    Is it worth paying extra for beyond earth or is 3 /4 / 5 better value?

    Of course, but Civ VI is too new and successful for that to be realistic.

    The BTA tier will have more than enough content for a long while and Civ V is generally better regarded than Beyond Earth - but Beyond Earth is the newer game and you'll struggle to find the content of the top tier for less than the additional $7.50-ish minimum that it currently costs.

    And it only costs 80p for Civ 4, allegedly the best of the lot (with Civ 5 coming close with its expansions). Not sure to what extent Beyond Earth is salvaged by its expansions?

    ​Thanks, ended up with bta tier.

    Doubt i ever scratch the surface of content I brought without beyond earth and by time I get there it probably be just as cheap.

    Civ 5 is from 2010. Unless I really seriously overslept this morning we're not in 2025 yet.
    Also these games are phenomenally well known to PC gamers so not like people need "warning" about it being turn based (as if that's a downside as opposed to a consistently popular genre in the PC community).
    The only Civ game I have ever played is on my phone but I really liked it. Obviously the full PC version has got to be bigger and better so I want to give it a blast.

    Which is best? or should I go straight for the newest one?
    I hoped Colonization would be part of the bundle, even if it isn't a Civilization game as such.
    Did they ever release that in a format that can be easily played on modern systems?

    Civ V with expansions (BTA tier) gets my vote, but Civ IV is also very highly-regarded. Beyond Earth is the latest in the series, but wasn't as well-received - of course, it's still a Civ game, so it's being rated against a high standard in the first place!

    Absolute bargain. Thanks a lot.
    great games, but for me Civ3 is still the daddy.
    Civ IV for 86p is a bargain- I still prefer it over Civ V!

    Cheers for the advice dude, I went with Civ V. It's that bit newer and shinier but still has awesome reviews. Looks like it will last for ages too, the dlc list goes on forever!
    I've tried civ IV and V, with high hopes and I feel like I am the only person who doesn't seem to love these.

    I just can't get into it
    Great price and purchased.

    I've read that Civ 2 was the pinnacle of the franchise though, and the games have all been dumbed down since then.

    I spent hours on Civ 2 when I was younger

    Civ 2 Call to Power was the highlight of the series for me. Hot-seat turn based gaming was great. I've played it on the net and on a lan since but having a few friends crowding around the same PC waiting for your turn was great fun.
