I could finally get Brave New World, if I wasn't poorer than usual.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V, that stalwart of the 4X genre, is now available on Linux, thanks to Aspyr Media. Designed to work with SteamOS, the Linux port has all of the same features and options available on the Windows and Mac versions, including Steam Play support, achievements, and support for the incoming Steam Controller.
The port also includes cross-platform multiplayer – so no matter what operating system you are running, you can now play multiplayer Civilization V with your friends. Heck yes.
To celebrate the launch of Civilization V on SteamOS, the game is currently discounted – you can get the Complete Edition on Steam for $26.39 USD, which is 67% off. Alternatively you can get separate expansions and DLC packs for 75% off – Brave New World is now just $12.49 USD for example, while the various Cradle of Civilization DLCs will set you back just $0.74 USD each. The sale won’t last for long though – just until tomorrow morning.
