I am looking to purchase Civilization V, and I see two different versions on Steam:

  • Civilization V
  • Civilization V Game of the Year Edition

What are the differences between them? Does the Game of the Year edition include an expansion pack or DLC?

The differences are listed on the GOTY edition's store page:

Includes the Following Civilization V content

  • All 4 Cradle of Civilization Map Packs (Mediterranean, Asia, Americas, Mesopotamia)
  • Civilization Pack: Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar II)
  • Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca
  • Civilization and Scenario Pack: Polynesia
  • Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark - The Vikings
  • Explorer’s Map Pack
  • Official Digital Soundtrack (Soundtrack not available on the Mac)

Oh now I see it. I was looking under only Civ V (not the GOTY) and it just showed both of them with the prices. No explanations on the differences. –  Zero Stack Apr 17 '12 at 19:22

According to the game page of the Steam Store it includes the game plus the following DLC:

  • All 4 Cradle of Civilization Map Packs (Mediterranean, Asia, Americas, Mesopotamia)
  • Civilization Pack: Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar II)
  • Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca
  • Civilization and Scenario Pack: Polynesia
  • Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark - The Vikings
  • Explorer’s Map Pack
  • Official Digital Soundtrack

That does not include all the released DLCs, though; you can see a complete list of them under the Steam Store page for the regular edition.
