Civilization III Limited Edition Selling Out
10:44 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Infogrames has posted a press release detailing the high volume of pre-orders that have started pouring in for their upcoming turn-based empire-building strategy game Civilization III. While the title itself is already in demand due to the success of the previous games, the large number of pre-orders has been helped in no small part by the offering of a special limited edition version, which will be a one-time run of 75,000 units.

The limited edition will come packaged in a tin box that contains several items, including a "making of" video, a second video that shows Civ III designer Sid Meier's induction into the IDSA Hall of Fame, designer notes from both Sid Meier and Jeff Briggs, a fold-out tech tree chart, and of course the game and manual themselves. It retails for $59.99.

This limited edition is currently PC only, as the Mac version, being handled by Westlake Interactive, is still listed as being in early development. There's no word on a Mac version of the limited edition, though the chances probably aren't that great. However, IMG will be sure to keep readers informed as to Civ III's Mac progress, including if we hear any details about the limited edition version for Mac users. In any case the high level of demand for the PC version will hopefully inspire MacSoft and Westlake to get the Mac version out the door ASAP.
