Regarding Civ 5 and Steamworks

Does steamworks being built into Civ5 mean there is a possibility that it will appear on the Retail CD Key list? I share this household with 4 other heavy internet users - so buying a physical retail copy (and still getting all the steamworks features!) would be excellent and save me quite a headache.

With that said, it does not normally stop me buying steam games on special offer and sapping up more then my "fair share" of bandwidth. I only get away with it because I pay the bills

I'm pretty sure Civ 5 will be on that list, as using Steamworks means that is how its DRM and game registration is managed.

Excellent, I hope I can avoid a massive download then. Games are just so BIG these days (and gosh, that sentence makes me feel old). What happened to the days of swapping cassettes or floppies to play a game... well actually I'm glad I don't have to do that any more . 60gb/month between 5 people though is rather painful - especially with all the lovely things to waste bandwidth on

It's pretty much guaranteed that Civ 5 will require Steam, but buying it on disk will save you the download.
