We’re all in the middle of post-GoT Season 7 blues right now. It sucks immensely but never fear, mods are here to save us yet again. This time we’ll be taking a look at the best mods that import A Song of Ice and Fire (or Game of Thrones) to Civilization V, one of the most loved 4X strategy games ever created. If you’ve been missing GoT then these are the mods for you. These GoT mods for Civilization V are great in their own way but you’ll only need one of them.
This mod is focused on A Song of Fire and Ice with some influences from the TV show, Game of Thrones. It features new buildings, units and wonders inspired by the fantasy world including 11 which can only be built in the capital of a certain faction. There are three victory types enabled: Domination, an altered Cultural and a different type of Diplomatic.
A lot of work has definitely gone into the creation of this mod which is why it’s worth checking out.
This is the oldest mod on the list and is equivalent to around Season 3 of Game of Thrones. So if you’re looking for a more modern mod then this one probably isn’t for you. That being said, it’s an incredible mod that even includes the Westeros map. Every civilization has unique traits, three special units/buildings and city names appropriate to the house. It even has Great People and Spies that are named after characters from the series.
This is a fantastic mod despite its age.
This is the most recent mod on the list so if you’d like an up to date mod then this is the closest one you’ll get. It features 15 different playable factions including the While Walkers, Dothraki and Night’s Watch. Unlike the other mods on this list, it’s a Domination only modpack and requires you have several different mods installed for it to work correctly. So you’re gonna need a lot of space on your computer for this mod. Nonetheless, it’s an amazing mod.
If you’ve got the room then you’ll probably want to go for this one.
