Civilization Celebrates Turning 25 With This Civ VI 25th Anniversary Edition

When your game series draws upon thousands of years of human history for inspiration, hitting the ripe old age of 25 doesn’t sound quite so impressive. Every civilisation of note has lasted far, far longer than that, but in terms of videogames, 25 years of continued and sustained popularity is quite the achievement. There’s really not that many other franchises out there that have even reached double digits, let alone lasted two and a half decades.

So it’s worth celebrating in one way or another, and with the release of Civilization VI this year on 21st October, 2K have decided to commemorate the milestone with a special 25th Anniversary Edition. This will include

  • Copy of Sid Meier’s Civilization VI game and all bonus digital content found in the Digital Deluxe Edition
  • 25th Anniversary Edition premium packaging
  • Exclusive 25th Anniversary commemorative coin set with display case
  • “Civilization Through the Years” 100-Page hardcover art book
  • Aztec Civilization Pack pre-order bonus


Sid Meier himself piped up about the occasion, saying “The vitality of Civilization is in the new ideas that each design team brings to the game as well as the passion and feedback from an incredible community. We hope players enjoy the vibrant living world and the new features the team has created in this latest offering. I’m proud of the work they’ve done, and I hope you will enjoy playing Civilization VI as much as they’ve enjoyed making it. Here’s to the next 25 years!”

Speaking of playing it, be sure to check out our preview from earlier this month – funnily enough, the last time there was a heatwave sweeping across the UK.
