The strategy great goes gratis

In anticipation of the upcoming Gods and Kings expansion pack, 2K Games has announced that they'll be holding a Civilization V sale on Steam, along with a promotion that will make Civ V completely free for just this weekend.

Until the end of the weekend, Civilization V is 75% off on Steam, including all DLC, bringing the cost down to just $7.49 and some DLC as low as $0.75.

The Gods and Kings expansion is due to arrive on June 19, and will usher in a host of new content to Civ V including 27 new units, 13 new buildings, 9 new wonders, and 9 new playable civilizations as well as a new religion system that allows you to create your own customizable religion. But we're most excited about the new Steampunk Mode that we previewed earlier this month.
