Civilization V preorder bonus

Only through steam.

Quote:
Gamers who pre-order any version of Sid Meier’s Civilization V from Steam will receive the downloadable bonus content, Cradle of Civilization Map Pack: Mesopotamia, for free when the game is available. The map pack will let players experience the traditional Western and Middle Eastern “Cradle of Civilization.” The pack will include the Fertile Crescent with the Nile River valley to the west and extending east down the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys to the Persian Gulf. Leaders will be able to explore new terrain, cultures and conquests.

If I can somehow manage to at least beat the base Civilization 4 game by then, I may preorder.

This is so tempting, but I don't know if I'm going to reserve it yet. I know I'll eventually get it though, so it is hard to not jump on this offer.

IGN preview

Civ 4's multiplayer is basically broken (it requires insane port opening/forwarding), so I'm probably going to jump on Civ 5 just so I can have a multiplayer experience. I like everything I'm reading so far though, except that 5 doesn't have a religion system.

I dont play this game for multiplayer. Thats just too annoying for a game like this. Single player all the way.

The more screenshots I see, the more I want this game.
