Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack

Also available now is the next premium DLC featuring the Persia and Macedon civilizations!

Persia, led by Cyrus, is perfect for players who want to build a rich empire, and who aren’t afraid to launch a sudden, unexpected military strike. Macedon, led by Alexander the Great, is a powerhouse conquering civ, with special units and abilities that let Macedon bring the world under its control from early in the game.

The DLC pack also includes two new Wonders and a new Scenario: The Conquests of Alexander. Can you conquer the known world before your time runs out?

If you have the Digital Deluxe, the Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack will download when you start the Steam client. Separately, it costs $8.99.
