I first bought the normal version of Civ V without all the DLC's, but that was really boring, so I wanted the complete edition. That was $40, so I waited until the sale.

I want to buy the complete edition, now. Will I get 2 copies, just all the DLC's, or nothing at all?


I've been in the same situation with Civ 5 and also Killing Floor.

If you own the base game, but not the DLC, buying a complete/gold edition will give you all the DLC but not another copy of the base game.

In some cases it's cheaper than buying all the DLC on its own, even though you're missing out on the base game (Civ 5/Killing Floor case).

  • But it depends. I've added a game from humble bundle to my library, as I have the game itself but not all of it's DLC's. Humble bundle just offered one key for all of it. I've added the key even if I had the game itself. As a result I've gotten the DLC's to my library and redeemed some gifts in my inventory over 3 indie games. Don't know if thats due to the fact it's from humble bundle or as a gift from steam due to the fact that I would lost the key for the base game. – Ionic Jun 21 '15 at 10:40
