Steam Workshop support added to Civilization V

Turn-based strategy game Civilization V now uses Valve’s Steam Workshop system for browsing, rating, and installing custom, user-crafted modifications.

In a official blog entry, publisher 2K Games community manager Greg Laabs listed the immediate benefits players receive from the Workshop’s inclusion, including browser-based and in-game mod libraries, following notable creators, favorites, and creating mod collections.

2K also released a new version of Civ V’s software development kit for mod authors to plug their works into the Workshop. To check out the steadily growing custom content for Civ V, head here.
