Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.
Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.
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.
PCGamer - 93 - "Sight, sound and systems harmonize to make Civilization 6 the liveliest, most engrossing, most rewarding, most challenging 4X in any corner of the earth."
PCGamesN - 9/10 - "It's just the beginning of a new Civ Chapter, and what a glorious, confident beginning it is."
Telegraph - 100 - "Civilization 6 is not just a great strategy game - it's a remarkable comeback."
IGN - “Possibly the biggest and deepest game in the series' 25-year history.”
We've had the pleasure of playing Civ 6 for a few hours already, although I wish we had more. Each match of Civilization 6 will take you hours to complete, but not without good reason, the new improvements in improving city tiles, diplomacy and more make Civilization VI fresh enough to make us want to play this game for hundreds of hours.
You can guide your Civilization from being spear-wielding warriors to high-tech, advanced troopers. Combat not really your style? Why not build your Civilization around culture, and be the most cosmopolitan country in the world! There's so much to Civilization VI, and it's going to last you a long, long time. Getting into games with friends will be sure to ruin some relationships along the way- and that's just a testament to how incredible this game is.
