Civilization V Gods and Kings: Review | Hard Reset

Expansion packs are curious things. The early years of the new millennium saw the XPac reigning king, with boxed, physical copies being the only viable way of getting a bulk of new content out to eager consumers. Fast forward to the present day however, and the emergence of widespread digital distributors and speedy internet connections means that more and more companies are opting to release content in smaller downloadable chunks. Makes sense really; the risk of a product flop is much lower (and less damaging) if it comes with a smaller price tag, and the bite size content always means that a publisher can roll out a batch of fresh DLC should its previous efforts perform well. This change in the dynamic of content distribution means all but the major developers are tackling the challenge of a major expansion pack these days. Today, its Fixaris’ turn to put their chips in the corner of the dying breed of extra-chunky content updates with Civilisation V: Gods and Kings. (Civilization V, Civilization V: Gods & Kings, PC) 4.4/5
