Civ V adding Korea, Ancient Wonders packs

Civilization V is preparing two new downloadable content packs, set to release on Steam and other select digital services on August 11. The Korea civilization and scenario pack and Wonders of the Ancient World scenario pack will be available for $4.99 each, or as a bundle for $7.49.

The Korea pack gives you both the civilization and the "Samurai Invasion of Korea" scenario. You can take on the role of Sejong, king of the Choson Dynasty, with Turtle Ships and Hwach'a artillery. The samurai scenario lets you play as Korea, China, Manchuria, or Japan, as the Japanese warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi looks to send his warriors to Korea.

The Wonders pack adds the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Statue of Zeus, and the Temple of Artemis to your civilizations, each with its own set of benefits. In the included scenario, you can play as one of five civilizations in a race to build amazing structures, while those other civilizations are looking into useless things like science or philosophy. Suckers.
