I downloaded the game from Epic for free as I refused to pay for this game when it came out. £50 at launch. No chance. Not in the state that is was in. The last time I paid £50 for a game was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time way back and that was for a cartridge! Actually I never paid for it, my parents did. Now that the early adopters "beta tested" the game and it has received numerous patches, I can say I had fun with it. The game has problems, like the huge gaps between unit upgrades being a big one, but I still had fun. If they add Byzantium and Babylon I will consider buying the Frontier Pass when that inevtiably goes on sale. Absolutely shocking that Babylon is still not in the game and to a lesser extent Byzantium. Not buying otherwise. I am debating buying the Platnum upgrade while it is on sale since looking at the expansions, they add a lot features and fixes. The civ choices/leaders are still horrible in my opinion.
