Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonia's were originally released as bonus content for players that purchased the Digital Deluxe edition of Civilization V through Direct2Drive or Steam, but like the Babylonian empire, that exclusive will not last. Come October 25, anyone with the PC version of the game will be able to pick it up for the low price of $4.99.

But wait, there's more!

As a special gift to Civ fanatics, the Mongols Civilization and Scenario Pack is also coming out on the 25, and it's free! Finally we can learn the origin of one of the tastiest dishes on the Chinese food menu, which is good, because I'm so hungry I could eat a goat and wash it down with a frothy glass of kumiss.

Fun fact: Developers and publishers have been releasing extra content with "limited edition" versions of the games for decades. The fact that they're even making it available at all to those who don't own an LE and never got a chance to is a big deal in itself. The price is just there to make sure the content stays "limited" and so that those who paid extra for the LE don't feel like they got cheated out of it.
