The next installment in Sid Meier’s 4X strategy series, Civ 7, got its official announcement at Summer Game Fest. Unfortunately, it’s still at least six months away, due to launch sometime in 2025. Lucky for you, the game that came before, Civilization 6, is on sale for just 5% of its original price. An absolute steal for one of the best turn-based strategy games out there.

Civilization 6 is the latest entry in the long-running Sid Meier series of 4X games. Released in 2016, it’s had a host of DLC featuring new scenarios, rising and falling civilizations, natural disasters, a battle royale mode, and loads of new leaders and civilizations. If you’ve not played it yet, it’s absolutely packed with material for you to sink your teeth into, and you could easily play it right up until Civ 7 launches sometime next year.

In the game, you take control of one of many civilizations and lead them to victory. You have to build cities, raise armies, research new technologies to stay ahead of your rivals, and either conquer or make trade deals with them too. The turn-based nature of the game means it never gets too overwhelming, so you can take your time to plan your strategies.
