Standard or Deluxe?
If you were setting aside $60 for Civilization VI and now see there’s a discount to $67 on the Deluxe, it’s worth asking… do you get the cheap Standard Edition for $51, or fork over $8 more than what you were planning to spend for Deluxe?
It’s really a personal choice and depends on how much of a die-hard Civ fan you are. Deluxe includes the base game, a soundtrack, and 4 additional DLC packs. We’re not sure exactly what’s in the DLC, but 2K does tell us it will be cheaper to buy Deluxe over purchasing each DLC separately (so they’ll cost more than $20 to buy separately). If you enjoy starting up various scenarios and trying different map packs and civilizations – then going Deluxe certainly wouldn’t be a bad bet.
If you simply want to play Civilization VI today and now at the absolutely cheapest price – then the 15% off Standard Edition deal above is best way to go.
