"The pre-sales of Civilization III have really taken off," said Ron Seger, vice president, product line sales for Infogrames. "Early on we met with some of our retail partners about a special edition of the game that would be limited to a small production run. The positive response to this idea was universal. We put together the limited edition for those fans that want more in their Civilization III experience. The gamers who score one of these tin-box limited edition games on launch day could have a real collector's item."
The referenced limited edition is a one-time run of 75,000 copies of a special edition of the game. Click here for pre-order details. The limited edition does not interfere with the regular edition of Civilization III, which can be found here.
The limited edition of Sid Meier's Civilization III comes packaged in a tin box that contains an exclusive video chronicling the making of Civilization III, a second video celebrating Sid Meier's induction into the IDSA Hall of Fame, designer's notes from Sid Meier and Jeff Briggs, a fold-out tech tree, and the Civilization III game and manual.
In Civilization III
players choose one of 16 fledgling civilizations and, if they are masterful,
guide them to global domination through development of technologies, cultural
achievement, trade with other civilizations and all the other skills that
make a civilization great.
