Coming this fall as a PC exclusive, Sid Meier’s Civilization V will also have a Special Edition, a robust retail package that contains collectable items and exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content, will be available starting September 24, 2010. Let’s see what goodies come with the the Special Edition of Civilization V (or the Collector’s Edition as everybody else calls it):

– 5 metal figurines based on units from Civilization V and manufactured by Reaper Miniatures
– 2 disc CD soundtrack of game score selections
– DVD “Behind the Scenes at Firaxis on Civilization V”
– 176 page hardcover art book

Civilization V takes this definitive strategy game series in new directions with the introduction of hexagon tiles allowing for deeper strategy, more realistic gameplay and stunning organic landscapes for players to explore as they expand their empire.

The brand new engine orchestrates a spectacular visual experience that brings players closer to the Civ experience than ever, featuring fully animated leaders interacting with players from a screen-filling diplomatic scene and speaking in their native language for the first time. Wars between empires feel massive as armies dominate the landscape, and combat is more exciting and intense than ever before. The addition of ranged bombardment allows players to fire weapons from behind the front lines, challenging players to develop clever new strategies to guarantee victory on the battlefield. In addition to the new gameplay features debuting in Civilization V, an extensive suite of community, modding and multiplayer elements will also make an appearance.

The game is expected to hit retail shelves (and Steam) on September 21, 2010. Will you get the regular edition or the Collector’s Edition?
