Honestly the pricing on this game is mental.

It costs 75 for all content in the first 6 months only! PC games normally cost 25-30 and you play online forever for free.

I am willing to bet that after those 6 months there is another pass for the next 6 months for another 75 and then it goes on.

yeah, that's nuts. I was expecting DLC to be reasonable. But instead you have to pay more than a full game to make this a full game. Oh well...still gonna try it. Maybe I'll be singing a different tune once I actually play it.

Yeah pretty much the same thoughts here. Free + Microtransaction-ish model is great but this is pushing it.

Yea i was dissapointed by the pricing from the start, they did say they were going for "microtransactions" kind of model, but there is nothing micro about this "macrotransactions" =(

Yah I think I may only buy one pack and leave it at that. Still thinking though. Not sure how likely these will all be on sale since they feel 99$ is such an amazing price...

What do you mean the pricing is bad? It is excellent value, considering by buying two premium civs you pay $50 AUD and can get the full 1000 GS, plus at the moment you get the first DLC free.

It is $125 AUD here in Australia for the season pass which you get the two premium civs already out, the first DLC plus there should be another two premium civs and who knows how much extra DLC.

I admit that might seem a bit expensive, but for the amount of content you get it is a pretty sweet deal. Or if thats too much for you, you can just buy one prem civ or play for free.

Some people just complain about everything....

I mean come on, even the decorations for your capital city are $7.50. If I want plants and statues, that's $15. This is stuff that should be $2.50 tops.
