Sid Meier's Civilization V is set to get brand new downloadable content later this month, publisher 2K Games has announced.

The Mongols Civilization and Scenario Pack, free to all current users, sees Genghis Khan joining the fray. You'll be tasked with expanding your Mongolian empire from the steppes of Asia to Europe's doorstep.

The Babylonian Civilization Pack, previously available as part of the Sid Meier's Civilization V Digital Deluxe Edition, adds Babylonian ruler, Nebuchadnezzar II. Look out for new Babylonian bowmen units there too. The pack costs $4.99 in the US - we're chasing a UK price tag now.

These two offerings amount to the first DLC released for the game, which out-maneuvered Eurogamer's Quintin Smith last month, winning an impressive 8/10.

Both packs will be available for download on PC from 25th October.
