frame2 Civilization V Goes Free to Play for a WeekendIf the 4X action of Warlock: Master of the Arcane wasn’t enough for you, 2K and Firaxis Games have announced a free weekend for their popular title of the same genre, Sid Meier’s Civilization V. The free weekend, which will run from today until Sunday at 1p.m. Pacific time, is meant to celebrate the upcoming release of the Civilization V Gods & Kings expansion pack. The expansion will be available to pre-order later this month.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Gods & Kings can be pre-ordered starting at 1:00 p.m. PDT on Monday, May 28, 2012 and players who choose to take advantage of the free-to-play weekend can continue their quest for world domination and keep their progress intact by purchasing Civ V before Monday, May 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.

In addition to the weekend of free play, the entire Civ 5 franchise will be 75% off on Steam this weekend. The Gods & Kings expansion pack is set to be released on June 19th.
