Firaxis and 2K Games have made the surprise announcement of Civilization VI, which will release later this year. The game, which is exclusive to the PC, will be out on October 21, 2016.
Civilization is a series of turn-based strategy games of the “4X” genre that invites players to build an empire that stands the test of time, taking on opposing civilizations in culture, diplomacy, and war. The newest entry to the series, Civilization VI, offers new ways to engage with the world: cities physically expand across the map. In previous games, cities took up a single tile. Active research in certain forms of technology and culture is said to “unlock new potential,” and competing leaders will now pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits.
Firaxis has released a list of features that the game will offer. Check them out below.
See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.
Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.
Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.
In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS:
Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.
