If I buy the Brave New World DLC, can I still play the game as it was with Gods & Kings? Or will all the games now include the new Brave New World features?

Although Steam will automatically download all DLC for the game, you can go into your settings inside Civ V itself and turn DLC content off, such as the expansion packs.

Additionally, the UI should now revert to whatever version you're playing as well, as of the latest patch.
