Civilization 5 maps offer new take on familiar landscapes

A new map pack has been released for Sid Meier's Civilization 5, with another due to arrive next month.

The Scrambled Continents map pack is now available for $4.99. Additionally, the Scrambled Nations map pack will be available on Nov. 5 for the same price.

Maps included in Scrambled Continents are Africa, Eastern Asia, North and South America, Western Europe, Middle East, a thawed Antarctica, new scripted maps for Small Continents, Oceania, and one map including all of Earth's continents. The outlines of the maps remain constant while interiors change with every game. The Scrambled Nations map pack includes Canada, Australia, Japan, Scandinavia, Great Britain and China.

Developer Firaxis said that the new maps are "inspired by the Scramble for Africa scenario included in Sid Meier's Civilization 5: Brave New World," adding that "these map packs include real geographic outlines with randomized interiors, giving players even more ways to experience Civilization 5."
