Sid Meier’s Civilization V (CIV 5) is an award-winning PC strategy game developed by Firaxis Games, and released on Microsoft Windows on September 21, 2010.
Since its development, the game has garnered positive acclaims for its appeal to the nurturing side of human nature and the fact that every move you make in the game has its own positive or negative consequences. Your victory in CIV 5 is greatly determined by your choices from the game onset.
Moreover, CIV 5 is a great time-killer, as you might just lose track of time when you begin to grow your civilization.
For game lovers who are eager to try out CIV 5 for the very first time, I have included the torrent file (repack by xatab) at the bottom of this post. You must have a torrent client to download it such as qBittorrent.
If you have already installed the game (xatab repack), the default language will be in Russian and you need to change it to English to be able to play it.
