Today 2K and Firaxis Games announced that two new map packs are coming to Sid Meier’s Civilization® V!
The Scrambled Continents map pack is available right now from participating digital retailers for $4.99.
The Scrambled Continents map pack gives fans a new way to play Civilization V where they will use a wide variety of real-world geographic locations as the backdrops for their games. While the familiar outline of the continent’s geography stays constant, the interior landscape changes each time you play, resulting in endless replayability and countless plausible scenarios. The maps included in Scrambled Continents are Africa, Eastern Asia, North and South America, Western Europe, the Middle East, a thawed Antarctica, new scripted maps for Small Continents, Oceania, and one map including all of Earth’s continents.
The upcoming Scrambled Nations map pack will be available from participating digital retailers on November 5, 2013, also for $4.99.
Inspired by the Scramble for Africa scenario that was part of the Civ V expansion, Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World, these map packs include authentic geographic outlines with randomized interiors, giving players even more ways to “one more turn” their way to world domination within Civilization V.
The DLC, the first for Civ5 in over two years, is now available on Steam, priced at $4.99 in the US and 4,49€ in Europe. The following description is given:
And Dennis Shirk has the following to say about the pack:

South America, for example, retains it’s true geographic shape, but the inside is randomized, and also includes scripting that generates a random north to south mountain range. South-east Asia retains it’s outline, and it’s defining mountain range, and randomizes everything else.
Some maps are hill heavy, some mountain heavy, some have persistent terrain (like excessive Tundra in the extreme north on North America, all keeping the character of the continent that they are based on. We’ve also including some brand new map scripts as well, and most of them come in multiple sizes for different play-styles.
The Earth map is an excellent replacement for the regular Earth map for those that want some random play. It comes with all sizes, retains the land-forms, and is completely random on the inside.
End sales pitch. I just wanted to share.
