So I bought Civ V on Steam way back in the day before any expansions came out. Is there a cheap way to upgrade to complete? I didn't care for the game as much as Civ IV when it came out, but have heard a lot of people say the expansion packs made the game quite a bit better. I don't want to buy the the Civ V Complete since I already bought the base game, hopefully it's not the cheapest way to get there.

Doesn't Steam hold a big summer sale? You could hold off for it to grand the expansions.

That would have been my advise, too. You can also look out for sales on other stores. I recall that Civ V and all its expansions where dead cheap on the MGS not too long ago.

Just saw that, looks like I have 1.5 hours left to make a decision. There probably won't be a better price for the bundle. Thanks for watching my back! :thumbsup:

Especially with Brave New World, fantastic.
