Civ V patch and DLC launched

Turn-based strategy gets a bit smoother with a new patch and DLC

Earlier today, American publisher 2K Games launched the first patch and downloadable content for its recently released PC strategy game Civilization V.

The new DLC includes two scenarios, one of which is free. The Mongol scenario centers around historic war monger Genghis Kahn as he tries to establish the largest land empire ever. The Babylonian scenario, which sells for the $4.99, stars King Nebuchadnezzar II.

Meanwhile, the patch fixes several in-game bugs and balances some gameplay mechanics to make scenarios less exploitable, according to the update notes posted on the game's official forums.

Civ V, released last month, received rave reviews from critics, garnering a Metacritic score of 90.
